Milo is a 4 year old Border Collie who is searching for a home with no children and where he can be the only dog. Milo needs lots of mental stimulation and outdoor space as he is very anxious. He needs someone who has lots of knowledge and experience in owning collies. He ideally needs a home where he will be outdoors most of the time or have access to a private area of his own. Milo currently lives in a outdoor kennel in a quiet area on site as many of the things on such as wildlife, dogs, people and vehicles make him stressed so enjoys the quiet areas.

Wolfwood is very grateful to Lin from Happy Harvey’s Dog Coaching for donating her time and expertise in helping our dogs. Her useful updated report follows:-

“Milo is a typical Border Collie and has all the characteristics of this working breed. Milo loves nothing better than to play throw and fetch with “Mr Duck” the first thing he does when he meets you is invite you to play

Although Milo walks with other dogs when being walked, he becomes overly focused on the ones who are walking behind, up ahead or towards him, to the point of becoming over stimulated, it is then that he can be reactive and has been known to snap.

Border Collies are known for their high intelligence and ability to learn quickly, Milo is no exception.

If you are interested in adopting Milo please call: 07931220094 for more information.

      Hi Jules,
      I fostered Milo for almost 3 months. Unfortunately I couldn’t keep Milo because I live in a flat, but I often let him off the lead in a friend’s large communal garden, in which there were a number of cats. Milo never showed any interest in them at all. I don’t know how he would be with cats in the home, but I can say he didn’t show any aggression towards them outside.

    My kids are in love but I don’t want a dog so what do I do

  • Cath Beveridge

    We are looking for a dog to replace a much much loved dog who very sadly passed away of old age 2 months ago. We live in the countryside and have an acre of fenced garden, I don’t work so we would not have to leave him for long periods. The only issue is we have 2 cats (aged 10). They are used to dogs and got on well with our previous dog. We have 1 daughter (aged16) living at home. I have owned and loved 2 dogs (both rescue mixed breeds) and my husband has always had dogs including border collies. We would love to adopt Milo or any other dog that would tolerate cats.

    With referance to MIlo

    We live in a place called Culcheth (WA3 4PA). We’ve had a border collie for the last 15 years.

    We have good experience of the breed. We are currently winding down to semi retirement and live in a rural area which backs onto fields and a linear park. We both enjoy walking and exercise, normally 5-6 miles each day. My wife is a therapist and is home based (no visitors). Border collies are a truly wonderful breed and a joy to be with, each with their own unique challenges.

    We would be fully committed to exercising Milo (and of course the inevitable ball play) and providing training and socialisation skills if necessary.

    We are very kind, caring and loving dog owners and would take as much time as Milo needs to develop his confidence both in the home environment and outside, in addition we no children living at home.

    If you wish, we would also be willing to do a Zoom/Skype call.

    Do you have any additional photos of Milo (or maybe a video)?

    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards

    John and Gaynor

  • Mrs Min Graham

    Hope you are all well.
    My name is Min and I live alone in a downstairs flat in a lovely rurally part of Heysham.
    I’ve just lost my pet collie who was 12 years old and I miss her dreadfully.
    We went for many walks daily and days out as I’m retired and I am very active can offer Milo the same plus a warm loving environment.
    Many thanks and I’ll leave contact details below.

      Hello, milo has tried living in a flat before and it didn’t work out. We feel he needs lots of outdoor space to live in to be happy. For more information though give us a call on 07931220094, or keep an eye on the website for new arrivals! 🙂

  • Ian Simpson

    He needs an alpha male.
    Most of these people don’t have any concept of what one of them is.
    I have never met a dog I didn’t comand alpha with.

    • Wolfwood

      Milo is in need of a particular home with lots of outdoor space where he can get away from people to help him cope with his anxiety.
