We're not in the habit of running adoption notices here at LAO, but since I can't even begin to count the number of times Gustavo Arellano has made me laugh out loud with his outrageous "Ask a Mexican" column, I figure I owe him a favor. So here's Milo, via Gustavo, begging (have you looked at the photo?) for a home:
I've taken care of this wonderful dog many times over the past couple of years--class act all the way. However, current living conditions (in a P.O. Box) do not allow me from accepting Milo, which I would've done in a heartbeat, which means that if there are no takers, Milo goes to the pound like hundreds of his fellow dogs and loyal-opposition cats have done recently due to the mortgage mess.
There is only one real problem with Milo, as evidenced by the picture above: he's a Great Dane. Everyone is either freaked out by his size or mesmerized, but the only challenge his size brings is cleaning up after him--carry a shovel. But look at his face--Milo is as timid and shy in real life as the picture shows...He's potty-trained, good in an apartment setting, and needs love, long walks, and someone willing to play with him after said walks for about half-an-hour. Otherwise, Milo just sleeps the rest of the day.
If all the doggy real estate in my house wasn't already spoken for by Jake and Maisie, I'd bring Milo to Malibu. Interested in giving Milo a new home? Gustavo's contact info is in his post right here.
