Milo #5 Black Labrador Retriever Male 1.5 Year Old ID#3214
Meet Milo! He is a sweet and very handsome 1.5 year old black Labrador who was surrendered to Brookline by his owner by no fault of his own. Although Milo is young, he has had a very sad start. Milo was initially surrendered to a veterinarian by his original owner after they brought him in to be euthanized because he was sick. The vet found that they had tied a string around his tongue as a deterrent for barking. He swallowed the string while it was still attached to his tongue. The string traveled through his stomach and into his intestines and had become impacted which was why he was feeling sick. The veterinarian took possession of Milo and completed the surgery to remove the string and adopted him out but was then bounced around to several homes without the help of a rescue. Unfortunately for Milo, the homes weren’t quite right for him so Brookline was asked to help re-home him to his perfect match. Please read Milo’s blog from the bottom up to learn about his time in foster care.

Milo got neutered yesterday, and is recovering well. He did have to have his left ear packed again since there was still a mild infection in there. He was very good at the vet’s office, meeting all of the staff and being poked and prodded. We have been working a lot on his sit and down cues, along with “wait” and “come”. I’ve also been having some of the other kennel staff practicing these cues as well, so he gets used to listening to everyone. He’s doing so well!

Hi All! My name is Milo and I just arrived at this new place called Kamp. I’ve tried out a couple of different places in the last couple of weeks after that nice vet helped me out but they just didn’t feel like home yet. A nice lady brought me home from the vet but one of the furry kids there didn’t really like me so they had to keep her upstairs while me and my other furry friends stayed downstairs. That lady’s friend also thought her house might work out for me and took me home for a week but the cat there wanted me out and kept chasing after me and trying to scratch me up! Boy was that scary! I couldn’t go back with that first lady again so now I’m staying at Kamp until they find me a foster home… I really love my people and I’ve been told that I’m very sweet, playful and affectionate and that I settle easily in the house but I do like to let my people know when someone is coming too close to our house! If you are interested in fostering me, please let my friends at Brookline know.Well that’s enough about my past. Let me tell you what’s new with me at Kamp.
I was a little nervous the first time I went out with my new friend at Kamp so I was a little shy. Boy, it didn’t take long for me to realize that she was great! She took me out in the yard and we did some exploring, and I found a ball to play with. I found some ice too! That sure did hit the spot after playing and it was so fun to crunch up. Supposedly, I’m in too much of a hurry to get out to the yard and pull way too hard on the harness when I’m on that thing called a leash, so my friend said we are going to work on that while I’m here at Kamp. She said I was better on the collar on the way back but I was a little tired after playing in the fenced yard. Today, I was really happy to see my friend again. We walked out to the yard with a slip collar this time and she said I did much better. We played with a squeaky toy in the yard, and she also wanted to check to see what words I know already. My friend liked when I came back to her when I was off running and sniffing around the yard. She also liked when I sat and took one of her yummy treats real gentle. I did pretty good staying in one spot for a little bit but there’s so much to sniff in the yard that it was hard for me to pay attention too long. Stayed tuned for more updates! I can’t wait to get back on the keyboard again and fill you in on what I’ve been doing.
