Milo is the thinker and introvert. Milo keeps his heart wrapped closely to his chest. He is aloof and not particularly interested in interaction with strangers. Although, as he approached me, he did not mind being gently stroked. He adores his caretakers. He knows them and trusts them and they can do anything to him. I felt that the mask I was wearing might be inhibiting him from approaching (he couldn't see my mouth), so i took it off and he immediately came over to meet me. He wanted to stick his nose in my mouth and smell my face. I retreated and he accepted the passive resistance to intrusion gracefully and walked away. But he did come back and smell at my face again, but this time, just sniff and not try to inhale my breakfast....and I scratched him under the chin and jaws and he really liked that and relaxed visibly. He allows hands on when he is comfortable with you.
Someone was walking a young Pyrenees nearby and brought the dog over to the run area and Milo ran over and stood erect, but was not threatening, just stating that the run was taken. He did his typical male akita posturing. The young dog was polite and friendly and the staffer and Pyr walked away and Milo physically deflated, ears lowering to a look that appeared a bit sad that the dog had departed. He also urinated on the fence to remind the Pyr whose run this belonged to.
Milo wasn't even interested in food on intake and therefore, could not really be assessed on food...other than, he ignored the humans playing in the food bowl.
Before entering the shelter, Milo lived with his brother Cocoa, both intact at the time, in the same outdoor enclosure with no issues.
