When they say that the dogs who have had the hardest lives make the best dogs, Milner should be right on top. Milner and his father were found tortured by their owners who were arrested and prosecuted. Because of the legal case, they had to be held in the shelter for several months. Both boys were sick, had wounds, and were starved almost to death. Neither of these wonderful boys let that change their love of life or of humans. Their resilience will touch your heart. With weeks and weeks of care and love, we thought Milner was standing strong only to be met with the news that he needed to have lumps removed in multiple areas of his body. After undergoing that surgery, we found out that it was mast cell tumors, a type of cancer, and that we needed to go back and remove more of the area to remove the cancer. Milner is now recovering from what we hope will be his final surgery, and we hope he will get the all clear from our vets and be able to be adopted later this summer. He also has been diagnosed with a mild heart murmur that hasn't slowed him down.

Milner is just the happiest of dogs with his tail that never stops wagging and his body that almost bends in half with happiness when he greets you. About 5 years old, Milner is more than likely a purebred Pointer and at one time was used to hunt birds. He is very astute to the birds flying over and will watch them with his front leg bent, or pointing! He is a little too interested in kitties to live with a cat. Milner will gladly snuggle next to you on the sofa watching your favorite show and he won't even steal the remote. He loves his daily walks and has made a lot of progress with his leash skills. He is a strong boy and will need a strong handler when walking him. He has a lot of energy now that he is feeling better and will need a home where he gets lots of daily walks, hiking or pulling someone around on a skateboard.

Milner is good with other dogs and is not a big barker. He plays with his foster dog sister but doesn't interact with other dogs much. At the dog park/beach, he is more occupied with hunting all the birds or getting scratches from his people over playing with other dogs. He sleeps on his dog bed or will crawl into his crate for a nap or for bed at night. He is crate trained and nearly house trained. We think he would do best with a home where he has constant access to a yard. Milner has been around dog savvy children and is sweet, playful and gentle with them. He loves to ride in the car and stick his head out the window. Milner is full of personality, charm, spunk and old man sass! If you are interested in meeting Milner when he is available, please submit an adoption application on our website. Processing time for applications is about three to four weeks. If you have been assigned an adoption coach or have adopted from Labs and More before, please contact your adoption coach for the next steps.

This information is as up to date and accurate as possible for the dog in its current environment. All dogs and puppies will need time and training to adjust to their new surroundings and to learn the rules of their new home. If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs, the first step is to complete the Adoption Form on our website at www.labsandmore.org and take some time to review our adoption process. Your adoption includes the spay or neuter, current vaccinations, microchip, and other services provided while in our care. The safety and health of our puppies is priority one, so we only allow approved applicants to meet and handle puppies. Please understand everything we do is for the dogs and conducted by our kind and generous volunteers. We rely solely on donations, and we do not profit from a dog's adoption. Labs and More is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates on donations and time dedicated to this cause by volunteers. Your adoption will save the life of future dogs in need. Labs and More makes no guarantees regarding the behavior, breed, or age of the dogs in our care. Although we strive to provide necessary medical care to dogs in our care, we cannot predict future or current medical needs whether they were symptomatic or not at the time of adoption.
