Meelo is an eleven-year-old, forty-nine-pound, Australian Cattle Dog and Beagle mix. Don’t let Meelo's 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. Meelo 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. Meelo loves Kong toys with dog friendly (Xylitol free) peanut butter, and chew sticks. Meelo does take some medication currently and is very good about taking his medicine when his foster gives it to him. Meelo gets along with small dogs; but requires a slow introduction to larger dogs. He is good with mature kids ten and over. Meelo loves to go on walks and sniff everything outdoors, so a fenced yard to run around in or an active adopter that enjoys some time outdoors will be ideal. Meelo is eager to learn and does well on a leash. Meelo loves to come across people on his walking adventures. Meelo's foster is teaching him not to jump up in excitement when he encounters people and he's progressing well with her commands. Apply at crisisdogsnc.org.
