Description

Milton and his brother, Teddy, are siblings from different litters. They were living with their parents and a few other dogs on a breeder's property. When the owner could no longer keep the dogs safe, they were surrendered to another rescue. Recognizing that both boys would likely have their best shot at finding their forever home in another region, Milton and Teddy were transferred to MAGSR. 

Milton is a friendly guy. Having grown up with dogs of a variety of ages, he enjoys the company of other dogs. However, he is less comfortable around alpha males. According to his owner, Milton has grown up with children and did well with them. Although we know that Milton had an owner, we are not sure if he was kept as an inside dog or an outside dog. We do know that he did not have any vetting prior to his arrival at MAGSR. Unfortunately, Milton is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Milton has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Milton's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Milton is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Milton's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Milton will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If your household is looking for a big, beautiful guy, please ask to meet him today.
