Milton weighs 19lbs and is from Texas. He is a toy loving, goofy little man. He is mostly potty trained (very few accidents), and if he is kept on a consistent feeding, potty schedule when he arrives in Minnesota, he will be completely potty trained in no time at all. Milton's current Texan foster feeds him breakfast at 5:30am and dinner at 5:30pm, giving him ample time to "do his business" outside afterwards before he is kenneled and she leaves for work. He has not soiled his kennel while she is away. His favorite part of the day are the evenings.. when everyone is home, his belly is full, he has toys to play with, and someone to rub his belly.

One big thing you should know is they are heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting them! After they undergo treatment for their condition they will be completely healthy again, and heartworm is not a contagious disease.

Because they need treatment, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) program. Click here to learn more about this program.

They will get heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so their foster will need to be comfortable getting them to and from the appointments. Treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after they enter rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first. When they are undergoing treatment, they should be on activity ‘restrictions’ which just means they should relax in their crate or cuddle with you.   Click here to learn more about heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
