More About Me
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Like most Great Danes , Milo is a gentle giant but is naturally protective, in this case, when on a lead.
Off lead Milo is curious and friendly. He likes to investigate, chase birds and stay close to his owner - occasionally doing 'zoomies' to burn off energy.
He is playful with other dogs whilst off lead - wanting the other dogs to chase him - and is sometimes cheeky with people - putting his head down and bum in the air wagging his tail enthusiastically.
Milo will shadow his owner around the house, inquisitive about what it happening. He will then nap and chill out. Milo likes to smooch on the couch too !!
Milo is a ladies man and is suspicious of males, but will warm to them. When on the lead he will warn off people and other dogs - as he is 55 kgs Milo will need an owner with strength.
Milo becomes a ''chatterbox diva'' when he thinks he's not getting enough attention (the staffy in him) and can be a lazy boy when he chooses (the great dane side).
Milo will certainly make any lady feel safe at home.
Active singles or couples who have experience with large breeds looking for an entertaining, affectionate and sometimes cheeky companion.
Milo responds well to consistent training and will benefit with a little more tuition.
He is ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as he is a central focus when people are home. While he prefers company he can cope alone.
Milo would like another friendly dog for company but this is not essential.
Milo has never been around children. We recommend homes where any kids are at least teenagers and only if gentle and calm around dogs. No dog deserves to be rough housed or exposed to a loud, chaotic environment.
He will not suit homes where people live in very close proximity to each other with small outside areas e.g. villas, units, apartment complexes, terrace houses, strata complexes etc.
As Milo is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are:
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
Milo will suit any of the following:
Medium - playful and moderately active.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs he is ok unless distracted. He is protective of his owner when on the lead. Curious and friendly when off the lead.
When OFF a lead ...
His recall is good unless distracted.
