Introduction to Myles aka Mr. Wiggles!!!!

Tales from the foster home -- Meet Myles!

Myles was saved about two and a half weeks ago from Contra Costa Animal Services in Martinez--right before he was scheduled for euthanasia...and what a good save it was! You will be hard-pressed to find a better dog than Myles.

Myles is about a year old, is great with dogs, and might be good with cats (although he does not live with any right now, he shows no interest when exposed).  He LOVES absolutely everyone he meets and is just a total ham for attention and cuddles.  He might be one of the best cuddlers I've ever had as a foster, and I have had more fosters than I can count, so that is saying a lot.  He loves nothing more than to be curled up with you on the couch, the bed, the floor, pretty much anywhere you will let him be, he wants to be with you.  He has a moderate energy level, and does great with just a brief walk each day and a nice romp in the yard or game of fetch. 

Myles came to me with no training at all, and in just a couple weeks has learned to walk perfectly on a leash with just a martingale collar, knows "sit", "wait", "come", and is learning "down".  He is also a GREAT fetch player!  He just finally picked this game up from his foster brother, Cooper, and is a fetch rockstar now! 

Myles also loves children, and shows great potential to be a therapy dog.  He has the gentle and loving social-butterfly type attitude we all love in our pit bulls.  He is the ultimate ambassador to his breed in every situation he has been in and continues to impress me with his rock solid temperament.

Myles would love to have a dog friend or two in his forever home, or he would do great as a single dog because his primary focus are his people.  He just wants to be with you and is always looking up at you with his big brown eyes, wanting to please in any possible way.  When you praise him, he wiggles so much he folds in half, it is just absolutely adorable. 

This is a gem of a dog, and he truly deserves nothing less than the best, which I know he will find hopefully one day soon!

  1. He sounds wonderful! I wish we were in the market for another dog! Someone is going to be very lucky to have him as their newest family member!
