• Miles is now a Sanctuary Resident!
A 10 year old Border Collie mix, Miles is a character, full of personality and curiosity, animated with joy. He likes to check out everything outside, hanging with rescue pals and just enjoying the fresh air.
Miles is now becoming a Resident of the Sanctuary due to his medical conditions. Though we made great progress with his allergies and ear issues, turns out he has significant liver disease. His ultrasound had abnormal findings consistent with trauma from some earlier time. While supplements have helped, the bloodwork continues to go in the wrong direction so it is in his best interest to stay with Glen Highland. We feel uprooting him is too stressful and his uncertain future would be hard on any adopter, too. We will continue to provide the best care possible to maintain his health for as long as we can.
Fortunately, Miles is a happy, go-lucky character who has flourished with other dogs around, as well as the consistency in his care. We were able to end his chronic ear pain through months and months of medications and finally solved his severe allergy issues with a new diet. His allergy test indicated he has massive allergies to pretty much everything you can imagine- the worst we’ve seen. So he eats a Prescription duck-based limited ingredient diet. Aside from his liver problems, Miles is a much happier guy, free of those painful issues!
Miles is enjoying the best food, good canine pals, lots of toy play and plenty of cuddling, truly transformed by coming to Glen Highland. His original situation is unclear but he was confiscated due to a domestic violence situation when police intervened. The Virginia Animal Control team were happy to see this nice guy have a better life. He arrived at Glen Highland in the Summer of 2020.
