Miles is a handsome mutt who is between one and two years old. He's a happy, doofy boy. Miles enjoys playtime, but also enjoys getting pets and butt scratches. He's working on his leash manners and learning commands since he came to us not knowing anything at all. He's eager to please and will pick up on his training in no time.
