Milo, the dog has the kind of smile that just warms your heart.
“So many people just say that he smiles like a human,” Ivy Rylander, Milo’s mom said. “A lot of dogs smile, but there’s something so big and happy about his grin.”
Rylander rescued Milo five and a half years ago. When Rylander and her partner had just moved to a new apartment in San Jose, California, they felt it was time to adopt a dog. When they looked at the adoptable dogs on the website of Perfect Dog Rescue, Rylander fell in love with Milo’s photo.
Milo was only 8-months-old when he was picked up as a stray in California.
“He’s more nervous than a lot of other dogs, so they actually brought him to our house,” Rylander said. “He was really shy, and they had to help him up to the stairs to our apartment.”
Rylander wasn’t fazed by Milo’s nervous nature, she fell head over heels in love with Milo, especially when Milo flashed his signature smile.
“I just knew he was the one,” Rylander said. “Once they left him at our house, there was no way we were going to say that this wasn’t working out.”
Milo’s grin isn’t his only distinctive quality, he has patches of wavy fur. “It kind of wisps out around his neck like a werewolf, and then his tail is curly,” Rylander said.
His curls are so unique that everyone is guessing about his pedigree.
