Miko is the newest kid on the block… This guy is EXTREMELY energetic! And will need a home that is patient with continuing some of his basic obedience.
He is looking for a very active lifestyle to keep him physically and mentally stimulated. If Miko is left unattended to become bored, he will most likely get destructive with his beds, toys and anything around him.
Miko has a couple doggo friends here at the shelter and he has met many on his walks on our local trail near by, and is great. No cats for this guy, chasing would be to much fun.
If you feel you are someone that can provide Miko with an active, structured lifestyle, that he is so eager to have. The first step to adoption is the application.
