Meet Milagro (AKA Mila)
Breed: Black Labrador Retriever
DOB: August 2017
Sherwood Police Department, OR
Check out her video interview with KATU:
Mila is a Labrador Retriever in training with Pawsitively Trained, LLC to become a Comfort K-9 for the Sherwood Police Department. She will be used as a therapy animal for victims of a crime, members of the community who have experienced trauma, and anyone in the station (especially the officers!) who would benefit from her emotional support. Mila has a lot of hard work and training ahead of her in preparation for a career as a Comfort K-9. In addition, she will require continued training throughout her life to maintain her skills.
This sweet puppy was born and raised in Sherwood with a loving family, dedicated to supporting local law enforcement. The idea of the Comfort K-9 program was inspired by their desire to use their puppies as companion animals. Milagro (Spanish for miracle) was destined for the program when she beat the odds and survived an emergency surgery at birth. She was donated to the Police Department at 12 weeks old and instantly began her training program.
We are so excited to have this dog as a local resource and have already seen the positive effect her presence has on staff and officers. Mila will bring joy to hundreds of people throughout her life and already has the support of many members of the community. We're incredibly thankful to Nature's Pet in Sherwood for donating Mila's food for her entire career and to Crossroads Veterinary Hospital in Sherwood for donating a percentage of her veterinary costs. Please be a part of her extended family and donate to support her training program and her future with Sherwood PD.
