Milo is a perfectly healthy and happy neutered 11 month old purebred ABCA registered Border Collie. He has no health issues whatsoever and is up to date with all his shots. Milo is a phenomenal little man who loves to play and run around 24/7. He is chocolate and white and will be 1 year old on Halloween. I flew out to get him in Pima, AZ back in January at 10 weeks old. I thought I could manage his high energy but it is becoming considerably difficult. I take him on daily walks in the morning and to the dog park in the evening. I have a huge backyard that he plays in but he is constantly on the move and I don’t feel like I am doing enough at times. He’ll go for 3 hours straight, and nap for 30 minutes and then he’s back and ready to go right after. Truly, an energizer bunny on steroids. He is highly intelligent and picks up on tricks quickly. So far he knows to sit, down, stay, come here, leave it, and shake. He is a bit rusty on his recall and chooses to listen when there’s minor distractions around. If we are at the dog park though, I am invisible and does not like to come when it is time to leave. For this reason, I haven’t tested him off-leash yet as I’m afraid he would run off.
Milo is an outstanding dog. He is the best companion anyone could ever ask for. He is loving and affectionate and has the sweetest demeanor. He loves giving kisses as much as he enjoys receiving belly rubs. After I picked him up at 10 weeks old, I slowly began to socialize him with other dogs of all sizes and ages. He gets along with anyone and everyone and up until now I am happy and thankful there has been no issues with aggression. Milo walks well on leash although at times he will yank a bit when he sees another dog, only because he always wants to play. Milo has been around children but at times does not realize his own size when he comes up to them energetically for love, and will knock them over with one swift move of his wagging tail or a head nudge.
In my heart, I do not want to give him up. I have grown very attached and love Milo dearly. He makes me the happiest fur mama but I know in my heart, I can’t give him what he truly needs. I want to do what is best for him, as he deserves to be in the best home suited for his needs. I think he would do best with an individual or family that has experience with Border Collies and is equally as active as him and/or at least has the space for him to run around. As well as to mentally stimulate him since he is very smart. He really is a true Border Collie in nature. No doubts or what ifs. His favorite thing to do is herd other dogs at the dog park. It’s his calling.
I will be vetting anyone interested in Milo. My top priority is that he goes to a good and loving home that can provide for all his needs. I will also be asking for a rehoming fee, close to the price I paid for him. He will come with his ABCA registered papers, all medical records and proof of vaccinations, his crate + bed, and all his toys.
Although I am making the difficult decision of letting Milo go, I do consider him family and hope his next forever family will be open and comfortable with the idea of me checking in on him throughout the years just to receive updates and see how he is doing. I would love to visit him as well, although that wouldn’t ever become a frequent thing as I would understand and respect that he has a new family.
