Hello, I’m Millie!
My foster parents call me: Silly Millie, Mills, Millie Monster, and Nutter Butter.
Being in a foster home has given me the chance to overcome a lot of my fears. At the shelter and when I first arrived at my foster home, I would tremble in fear and was too scared to move. The outside world was an unfamiliar place.
With a bit of patience and lots of yummy treats, I’ve learned that I love being outside. I especially love sunshine! When I go outside for walks, the second I step into the sun I start rolling in the grass with joy. I’ve also discovered I love to climb rocks and boulders. I think after gaining all this confidence I just want to show it off by climbing!
Noisy streets especially big trucks still make me nervous, I stand still and close my eyes until they pass then I get right back to sniffing. Speaking of sniffing, I have a talented sniffer! I can smell a treat hiding under a cabinet and out of sight and I love to keep my nose to the ground sniffing all the scents when I’m outside.
I’m VERY treat motivated! I know sit, down, stay, leave it, and my specialty trick: spin. I do admit I am still working on my leash skills (I get excited and like to zoom forward – and sometimes into things). I didn’t get a lot of practice being a dog so I’m just learning how to play with toys. I’m learning that my foster mom’s hands are not toys (I’m mouthy but don’t bite down).
I’m silly and sweet and will bring a lot of joy to anyone willing to spend some extra time with me. If you’re looking for a sweet gal who needs a little extra love (I’ll give all my love right back to you in return), then submit an application so we can meet! Hope to see you soon!
Millie's Medical Information
The FOHA Medical Team says I need to be treated for heartworms before my adoption can be finalized. That doesn't mean I can't become a member of your family now. Once the adoption application process is complete, my adoption will be considered a "Foster with Intent to Adopt". That means I get to live with you and you will take me to one of FOHA’s approved partner veterinarians for my medical treatment. FOHA will financially cover the costs. Once my treatment is completed, we will be able to finalize my adoption and I will be forever yours.
