About Miley

Miley has been with our family a long time now, and we cannot believe someone hasn’t snapped her up! Miley is such an easy dog around the house and brings so much life, laughter, and love into our home. By focussing on what serves Miley, we have found many ways to get her the exercise and enrichment she needs, without stressing her with those outdoor environments that make her nervous. And for the times when we need to do that (for example we love to camp) some small changes have allowed us to meet her needs and keep us out exploring the outdoors. If you wonder if she could be the right fit for you, we encourage you to reach out to AARCS to find out more! In the meantime, we will let Miley take it from here.

About me:

I was about a year old when I found my way to AARCS, completely un-prepared for a life in a warm, safe house with a family that I could trust to care for me. Life before had taught me to always be on the lookout for the next bad thing, but with time, and training, I’m proud to say I am turning that around. Now I am on the lookout for my next GREAT thing, and I am hoping it is you!

I Love:

  • MY PEOPLE! Nothing I love more. I will even ‘sleep-in’ until 10:30am with my foster sister – just to be with her.
  • Games! Tug-of-war, fetch, flirt pole, go find it and the like. I’m also independent though – I’ll often play with my toys on my own, tossing them around for me to chase.
  • Relaxing! I love chewing on my toys (and yes, only my toys), snoozing in my bed, and of course, snuggled up with my people.
  • Outdoors! I love my walks and my Sniffaris, especially when it is quieter outside. Private areas I feel safe to run free and explore are my favorite!
  • Car Rides! I hop right in, sit nicely, and enjoy the view. Road trips are no problem for me and when I see the suitcases come out, I am ready!

I am less excited about:

  • New outdoor environments with sudden noises or unexpected movements as they can make me nervous.
  • Other dogs or people approaching out of nowhere (from behind corners or bushes). I will alert you if anyone is out of place (you’re welcome!)

I know:

  • All my important commands (Lay-down, Sit, Stand, Touch, Leave-It, Find-It, Go Pee)
  • Training games to keep my focus around distractions when I am walking outside – and I will teach them to you too!
  • How to be on my own during the day. I am crate trained but since I’m such a good girl I can be trusted to roam free when left on my own.
  • I’m perfectly house trained and cue my people when I need to go

I’m working on:

  • Leash Reactivity. I graduated from an 8 Week Program with Dogwit. We worked on skills such as Engage/Disengage, Pattern Games and how to utilize my skills of sniffing for decompression. I got an A+ in class! I have come a LONG way – I just need a little more space when I am out walking and someone to keep up with my training.
  • Greeting new people. I have almost aced this now, but sometimes I will bark and show conflicted behavior, nervousness/excitement. With a few changes we made (treat and retreat to slow the introduction and asking the new people to ignore me at first) I like having visitors over to my house and making new friends.

I would love a forever family who:

  • Are looking for a single companion who has tons of personality!
  • A fully fenced yard, where I can drop my guard and feel comfortable.
  • A home with some routine, lower energy, where I can feel safe.
  • Allows me to love them – I just cannot wait!!

Wiggles and kisses!!” – xo, Miley
