Meelo is an eleven-year-old, forty-nine-pound, Australian Cattle Dog and Beagle mix but Don't let his age fool you, he is an active boy! Meelo was left outdoors in the elements his entire life prior to being surrendered to the shelter. He is learning what it's like to be warm and comfortable indoors, and he's adjusting well to having a warm home and comfy bed at night. This senior gentleman loves Kong toys with (Xylitol free) peanut butter, and chew sticks. He gets along with small dogs; but requires a slow introduction to larger dogs; is good with older kids. Meelo loves to go on walks and sniff everything outdoors, so a fenced yard or an active adopter will be ideal. This boy is eager to learn and does well on a leash., loves to meet and greet on walks. Meelo is on medication to control seizures, a low dose prednisone and Kepra extended release. He is undergoing slow kill heartworm treatment which is less taxing on his system. This little guy has been through a lot and needs someone who works from home or is retired since he likes/needs the company! He is not an apartment dog.
