My husband injured his back and and is chair/bed bound which limits the time I can spend watching/training Milo. Our older dog doesn’t have much patience for him either which has caused a lot of fighting. We often have to keep them separated a lot of times in the house. To be clear, this is mostly due to our older dog and not Milo.
Milo is a happy and sweet dog but he does have impulse control issues and we have had to watch him pretty non-stop to prevent him from surfing the counter, searching for food or chewing on things.
A home that had available time and patience to dedicate to help/train Milo. An active home. Milo loves to walk and play so he needs to get plenty of exercise.

Milo is a little over a year old. He really is sweet dog but he needs someone with some patience who is willing to spend a lot of time to help curb some of his impulse control and counter surfing issues. Some of this should become better as he gets older and more mature. Milo would benefit from a home where he can get attention and exercise. We found removing from areas with food (kitchen), he becomes much more mild mannered. Milo was rescued from an animal shelter in July and has participated in some dog training as well. He is very good on a leash and knows some basic commands like heel, sit and paw. Milo is crate trained and sleeps in his crate at night.
