How it Started
Milo is a "Weizsla" or Weimaraner/Vizsla mix who was an owner surrender from inland North County San Diego. Milo came to SoCal Weim Rescue at a mere one year old and needed a new home as a result of a divorce.
How it's Going
After a few different homes, sweet Milo found his forever home with his current mom and local photographer, Liz, who couldn't be happier with her new companion.
I had a 13 year old Weim who passed last December. I took it really hard and didn’t think I’d be ready for another dog for a long time...I’d check the SCWR website occasionally, but still didn’t feel ready and didn’t see a dog that felt like just the right fit, until I saw Milo. When I saw his picture and read his description I felt like he sounded like just the perfect dog for me, and I applied right away for him. I even spoke with his owner over the phone. A few days later I found out he went to someone else who wanted to foster-to-adopt. I was out of the country and wouldn’t have been able to meet him for another week anyway, but I was disappointed for sure.
While out of the country the next week I checked the website again and couldn’t believe it but Milo was back on the site! I emailed SCWR right away and said I could meet him as soon as I returned from my trip. To my luck he was being fostered in San Diego not far from where I live and I was able to meet him the day after I returned! I felt we were a great match for each other but tried not to get my hopes up again - but on my drive home the fosters called me and said they felt we were a good fit too! I was able to bring him home the next day.
I feel so lucky to have him in my life, the timing wasn’t what I thought it’d be but he is just a wonderful dog and we’ve had a great time getting to know each other! We get out to the park or beach every day, and he is such a good and sweet boy at home. I’m looking forward to many more years of fun, love and adventures together.
We're so happy for Liz and Milo! You can follow Milo's adventures on Instagram: @myboymilo23. His mom is a photographer so we expect many more wonderful photo updates to come!
