Milo got bigger taller longer

(Northern Illinois usa )

Milo the darling got taller by two inches and longer by two inches ( usa ). We got him May 2016. It's now April 2017 . He grew bigger.

Milo was a bottlefed runt and is now 75 USA pounds. I learned that 1 stone is 14 pounds if that helps at all.

In December he will be three years old. Three is when a working breed dog has an adult mature brain development. So he has some foolish awkward teen age moments then he suddenly gets terribly dignified and stares into space with the wisdom of a Buddha statue.

Milo shed all of his undercoat in march 2017 . He has no undercoat at all I guess I'll have to see if it grows back in the fall or what.

His front feet are still too big for his ankles. Of course it's so cute his front feet are webbed like a lab. He is pyr x St. Bernard x white lab. Some breeders mix in white lab in effort to be smaller and a little more amiable I read. Online. So Milo has some nice lab personality and he loves to retrieve a ball.

When he is in the right mood he wants to be cuddled I think that's also a pyr thing. He likes to touch me nearly all the time and when he isn't he likes to stare at me he is conscientious about it.

Milo likes to also the same for my daughter she is developmentally disabled and altho age 29 in some skill sets she is age second grade . In other sikill sets gets to 6 th grade. He adjusts accordingly. No problem for him . He is so smart and people centric. It's lovely to watch him mature and adjust to us.

We are his third family we got Milo from a rescue shelter. They trust trained and obedience trained him . It's the best $ 150. I ever spent on anything. Milo has been training himself and role modeling the older dog. Our older dog king is 12 years old and blind due to age . Yet king is the boss of Milo. Good job , older dog.

    Angel and Daisy came to us because someone did not do their research. They wanted dogs they could just let loose and expected them to hang around the home.
