Milo the Shepski

Milo is a 2 year old German Shepherd – Husky mix. He spontaneously came into his humans’ lives at 8 weeks old, when they saw a re-homing ad for him while eating Korean food and stressing out over college finals. It goes without saying that they each failed one of their classes that term, but he ultimately saw his humans graduate with one science degree and one double-engineering degree.

From Corvallis, to Portland, and now to the Kitsap/Seattle area – Milo has destroyed countless items, traveled 100s of miles, and worked his way into a forever home in our hearts. Follow his adventures on IG @milotheshepski
