MILO HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!
When Milo's owners could no longer keep him, Donna J. stepped in and said she would love to have him.

She lives in a nice quiet household with no other pets or small children where Milo can thrive, being the center of attention!
Many thanks to Donna and we wish you lots of happiness with your new best friend!
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME FOR MILO!!
Milo is a 4 year old Cock-A-Poo who is looking for a new home. He is up to date on all his shots, neutered, chipped and ready to go. His current family describes him as loyal, loving and affectionate.
HIS STORY: Milo spent the first part of his life at a breeder in South Jersey where his family believe he was mishandled and kept near loud noises that scared him. As a result, he is afraid of any loud noises and will hide or won't go outside if the trash truck or a lawn mower are outside. He will accidentally tinkle if someone he doesn't know reaches for him. In a word, he is anxious.
Milo peacefully coexists with other dogs. The family doesn't know how he would be with cats. He loves to sit in your lap and cuddle, he loves car rides and he loves to sing!
They feel that the best place for him is with a family in a quiet setting where he gets lots of one-on-one time. They think older children would be fine, but don't recommend young children because the noise and high activity is upsetting to Milo.

The fenced yard will be a big help! The couple does not have other pets to interfere with Oliver’s training. We feel they are truly a match and we wish them all the love and happiness they can give each other.

Polly came to us 2 months ago after roaming the streets in Quarryville PA. She was infested with fleas and ticks. A vet exam concluded she suffers from Lyme nephritis, a condition due to prolonged untreated Lyme disease. Polly has 25% kidney function due to this condition. That does not hold her back. She is active and alert and would do best with someone who can pamper her all day. She LOVES people and will attach herself quickly to you. Polly is about 5 years old and weighs almost 6 lbs.
