Milo in Prairie Village, KS

Say hello to Milo, a very sweet 9-month-old tricolor boy! His previous owner acquired him from a breeder and then realized he did not have enough time to properly train a puppy. Cavalier Rescue was contacted, and Milo came into foster care. Milo is a lover boy and likes to snuggle by his humans. He loves attention.

Milo is young, active, and rambunctious – this pup has lots of energy! He likes to follow his people around the house, and he will often get underfoot. He tries to dominate his Cavalier foster brother. Milo’s foster family is working to correct this, and have already seen improvement. His recent neuter surgery should help to diminish that behavior. While being neutered, Milo also had a small hernia repaired. He is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and healthy.

Milo enjoys being outdoors, and we recommend a fenced yard for him. When the weather is nice, he delights in running around in the backyard at his foster home. Like many dogs, he doesn’t care for rain and doesn’t like to go out in it. He loves zoomie time – which consists of playing with his toys and then running circles around the rooms and in front of his foster brother or other small doggie playmates. He gets along well with his foster brother and sister, but will bark at the large neighbor dogs across the fence. Milo has been on a few walks, and he needs more training for leash manners.

Milo is fed in his crate, and he eagerly runs in there at mealtime. He’s very food-oriented and will jump to get food or treats. Foster parents (along with his foster brother setting an example) taught him to sit, and he does now.


Milo was not housetrained when he came into rescue and is still working on that skill. Poor guy never learned how to be a house pet, and his foster parents have been working on appropriate doggie manners. He is learning the routine at his foster home and doing well. He will need to stay on a regular potty schedule to maintain progress with new habits. Milo is young and trainable; he would do best with a family where someone can be home with him a good part of the day.

Milo favors men over women. Although he feels safe and comfortable with foster parents, he acts shy and hesitant with other women he doesn’t know. We are unsure how Milo would be around children – he has seen them in the park and just stares at them. We prefer to place him in a home without young children.

The ideal home for Milo would have someone familiar and experienced with housetraining skills, who can commit to working with teaching house manners. With consistent training, this affectionate young pup will learn how to be a great family pet, and he deserves a forever family to call his own.
