The Movie Dr.
Meet Milton. This 3 year old fellow came into our care as a lonesome stray. He is a big boy with an even bigger heart, which may be attributed to his Retriever and Bernese Mountain Dog background. He is very calm and relaxed, but does get excited for toys and play time! Milton currently knows how to sit and shake, and would be happy to learn other tricks for you. Milton is uncomfortable when strangers come to the door and will bark and growl, he requires an experienced and patient family who will work with a trainer to properly address this concern. Prior to submitting your application, please speak with our adoptions team for more information. He would make a great family companion for a home with children over 12 years old, preferably a rural home. This mild mannered boy may not enjoy the hustle and bustle of a dog park, but would likely be happy to live with other respectful animals. If you think that you could open up your heart and home to this sweet boy, come in to the KHS and pay Milton a visit today!
