Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Milkyway.  He is a 1 year old Australian Shepherd mix.  He weighs 55lbs. Milkyway has a medium length fur coat.  He was rescued by a good samaratan who took him from a friend who couldn't care for him any longer.

Milkyway is a very loving boy.  We believe he is older than 1 year as he is quite mature and appears to be out of the adolescent stage.  We would estimate he is 2 years old.  He is very well behaved and housebroken.  He is fed in a crate twice daily. He has a big appetite so his food is measured out.

This darling boy is a mid energy guy.  He enjoys playing with other dogs but doesn't like them in his face.  He listens extremely well.  He rides well in the car but needs work learning how to walk on a leash and body harness.  Milkyway loves children and is gentle with all.  He enjoys physical attention and is the perfect family dog.  He does have a prey drive so cats and other small animals are a no go.

The ideal home for Milkyway is one where he gets a lot of outdoor time with the family members.  Once he bonds with the family, he should be a good off leash candidate on hiking trails and cottages.  We do not recommend dog parks for this boy in case a dog gets in his face.
Milkyway is neutered, up to date with vaccines, 4dx tested negative, Dewormed, and in Heartworm/Flea Prevention.

A fully fenced yard and a Veterinarian history of compliance is mandatory in order to apply for Milkyway.
