Meet Milton, a cute jack russell cross that we picked up from the Hawkesbury Animal Shelter late in May this year. He was 5 months old when we put our names down at the shelter.
Milton got his name from one of my favourite movies, Officespace. A character in the film that works at IniTech, who loves his stapler. Our Milton though loves chewing on our empty plastic pots, playing with his toy dinosaur, and chasing wild birds. He has unfortunately made our backyard a war zone with all his digging too!
He gets along with my doves and doesn't come up to the aviary very often which is a relief. Milton is quite obedient and clever. He's picked up the commands of sit, down, shake and up. We're still teaching him how to stay which he doesn't quite understand.
At first he was quite timid when we picked him up from the vet on the first night, but he soon got used to his proud new owners and is very happy to chill with us indoors during the day or night. He gets lots of love and attention through tummy rubs and hugs from us. We sometimes go to a near by dog park on the weekends where he enjoys socialising with a lot of other dogs, mainly bigger than him.
Milton has already starred in a few home videos; from taking his red coat off to adventures in the dog park. We love him to bits and welcome him to our home.
