Mila 37164

mila 37164

Mila arrived at the shelter extremely skinny and dehydrated.  She was immediately taken to our medical department.  They ran a slew of tests, none of which came back irregular.  Her current condition could only be tied to a lack of adequate food and water.  We later found out her owner was brought to an elderly care facility, unable to care for his own basic needs, let along Mila's.  Mila is about 5 years young, she has a resilient spirit and an incredibly affectionate demeanor.  Although no fault of her owner, Mila still experienced neglect and we vow to help her find the amazing home she truly deserves. 

Mila is friendly, people focused and bonds quickly with her handler.  She couldn't get enough attention from our evaluators, offering cuddles and gentle kisses in return.  Mila showed no interest in the toy or bone we offered her.  She accepted treats gently from our fingers and was relaxed with all handling as she ate from her food bowl.  Mila was a bit uncomfortable with the dogs she met outside.  If you have any potential canine siblings for Mila, please bring them down to the shelter for a meet and greet to ensure they are the right match.
