Gorgeous Milana, a golden ret mix came into the shelter as a “stray”, but it was clear that this 5 year old beauty was someone’s gentle and loving pet. She was lucky enough to find a foster home where she is thriving and enjoying playing with her foster siblings.
The phrase “good dog” was made for Milana. At 5 years old, she’s still young and sprightly, but the rough edges of puppyhood have been buffed as smooth as her silky coat and you simply couldn’t find a prettier or gentler companion.
Milana’s foster parents tell us:
”Her breed is something of a mystery since she doesn’t have any predominant characteristics of a specific breed. The shelter thought she had some Golden Retriever and Labrador Retriever. We tend to agree due to the beautiful colors in her coat which could come from the Golden but is short and low maintenance like a Lab. She has been 100% house trained since her first day with us and hasn’t chewed on anything but a dog toy.
Milana has a nice medium energy level, always up for a vigorous play session but perfectly content to just hang out with her people in the house.
Milana has a desire to please her people, is highly treat motivated, and learns new things quickly. In the short time she has been with us she has already learned to stay, go to her place, and to walk nicely on the leash.
In her, we see a wonderful companion who has great potential. If you have a place for a 63 lb major league snuggler that will greet you with absolute glee when you return home, Milana is the girl for you.”
*** She will need an experienced owner to help her overcome her one significant problem – a fear of strangers. She shows great desire to approach and meet everyone she sees but becomes fearful when she gets close. She will even accept brief contact but in one instance, after an extended period of petting, she snapped at the hand that was petting her. ***
Milana is spayed, up to date on shots and microchipped.
