SHIRO Australian Shepherd & Spitz Mix Point Richmond, CA
- Spayed / neutered.
The Milo Foundation AnimalID is 24915 and the Current Location is at the Milo Sanctuary. Please see our website www.milofoundation.org for the current status of this animal. In lots of ways he's a very good dog and enjoys his walks. He likes to play with toys , and is very smart. He is a moderately high drive dog like most herding breeds and likes activity on his terms - as his insecurities keep him from being a Dog Park dog. He bonds heavily with a particular person and sometimes a particular dog - he is IN LOVE with the dog SNOW KITTY at the Milo Sanctuary, and would follow him anywhere. Shiro is wary of strangers but is very loyal to his owner(s) and for this reason he can be protective. For this reason he needs a very predictable , low stim. home to be successful. Training and building Shiro's confidence would be key to have Shiro flourish. *Return Notes* 5/20/17 Shiro is a super mellow dog. He just loves to sleep all day when we are at work. He does not bark or chew anything up. He is potty and house trained and never has had an accident inside the house. He is so furry and soft and has stunningly beautiful blue eyes. But if a stranger comes in - all bets are off... Shiro bonds very well with women and is more skittish with males. He also tends to get scared of men and tries to guard his female guardian sometimes. He does not like strangers coming up to him and gets protective of his owners. He would do well with experienced owners. We are not sure how he does with kids - Milo suggests a home without children for a myriad of reasons due to his stranger danger. He is insecure and can react poorly when meeting new dogs, but usually settles in and is fine - but can take some work with him and a new dog to get past the initial snapping and jitters, running with his tail tucked..... Shiro loves to run around and play fetch and catch Frisbee when he is not cuddling next to you. He loves the outdoors but is not a super energetic dog. He will just sleep all day or go for a walk with you. He loves squeaky toys and will just collect them from around the house if you hide them. He is intelligent and treat motivated.
