He's a shorty with a big personality. He's a fashionista that doesn't like clothes. He's been in and out of jail but loves to cuddle with mom. He's Milo Odell Beckham and with a name like that, you know he's fabulous. Read more about him below.
Tell us about you and your hoomans?
I'm Milo Odell Beckham, 3 yr 3 mo old (DOB - January 18, 2014), Male ShihTzu from Culver City, CA.
My hooman and momager is Vanna Chan, a Compliance Consultant at Kaiser Permanente. Mom loves fashion...she has quite a shoe collection. In her former life, before me.. she was a world traveler (for work) and now is full time in LA. Mom is originally from NCal (Bay Area).
Where did the name Milo Odell Beckham come from?
Mom has always wanted to name her next male pup Milo because it's cute and nerdy. Baby Milo is also a Japanese streetwear clothing line from Bathing Apes (BAPE). So I was named after this cute monkey. One of my nick names is monkey. My middle and last name came from moms fav football player/crush Odell Beckham Jr. Mom wasn't impressed with Milo Chan. So she had to come up with something better.
What are some of Milo's favorite things?
I love to people watch, have barking contests with other dogs, bark at big dogs, pretty much anything where I can hear my own voice. My absolute fav thing to do is lick my dads head!
I'm also a bow tie connoisseur/bow tie king. I have an impressive collection and love to wear neck ware including my gold chains.
I'm also an undercover pawty animal! I love going to pawties and meet ups to see all my local furriends!
Does you have any siblings?
None. I don't like to share my pawrents.
What is your favorite thing to do together?
I'm attached to Moms hip. So anything that involves my mom or going with my mom I love. I have attachment issues. Mom takes me everywhere with her. But most of all I like to cuddle with her when she's working at home or watching tv. I even get to sleep on her bed.
Why is your hooman the best?
My hoomans are the best because they chose me instead of my bio sister. Originally Mom came to buy a girl pup. But when she saw my black coat with white paw and tail, she chose me! Who can't resist this face?! There's no one in this world who cares for me like my mama does! She is the best.. all I need is her love.
Does you have any pet peeves?
Believe it or not.. clothes! Wearing clothes is a major pet peeve or dislike. But I have no choice. I lose that battle daily. So I suck it up and behave like a good boy. I'm starting to get more used to it. But when I have clothes on I sit there like a statue. And can't move.
I only drink filtered/bottled water. Please don't give me faucet water.
I have to eat before 8:30am or I won't eat
I need my goat milk before breakfast not after
Do you have a most embarrassing moment?
When I was a pup.. I would get anxious when there's big crowds of people. Mom took me shopping in Santa Monica and I pooped in the middle of the crosswalk as we were crossing. And the light turned RED! I stopped traffic with my poop!
What does an average day of you look like?
I live a good life. I sleep, eat and ........! On the weekdays when mom works from home I people watch and sleep until she takes me for walks. It's pretty chill all day. I play with toys and chew on my bully sticks occasionally. On the weekends I have a busier calendar then Mom. 🤣 She takes me to meet ups/parties. The days she leaves me by myself, I sit and stare at the door until she returns.
What makes Milo a true boss?
I'm a leader not a follower! I got my own swag matched with a cute face and cool pupsernality!
What is Milo's favorite BOSSPUP item?
My fav items are all the baseball jackets! Mom loves to dress me to match her. She she tries to find pup clothes that is more modern and cool!
Does he have a favorite food?
All human food!
Does he have a life motto?
"Innocent until proven guilty!"
I'm known as "bad dog". I spend a lot of time in doggy jail. I even put myself on time out when I'm guilty. I have a fascination with tissue, socks, underwear, small towels, and anything plastic.. I will chew it all up. I get caught jumping on tables to get what I want. How can you blame me? I have a full toy bin. But what the most random plastic gadgets. I've destroyed numerous of things so I always end up in my cage..
Who are his favorite instapups? Any instacrushes? ;)
My BFF is Chewy @chewy_fromthe6ix he lives in Canada
My local BFFs Max & Louie @MaxScorsese they live here in LA
My GF is Rosie @rosiepupstagram she lives in NY
But I have a tone of local furriends too! I see them more on a regular because we just love to pawty!
Any last words Milo?
I can probably win any snoring contest. My tunes are amazing and loud.
Mom calls me a Craigslist rescue. She bought me off of Craigslist. I was located in east LA. She didn't want a fancy dog or expensive one. She just wanted another shihtzu. (She had 2 others that live with my grandpawrents). There are so many rescue dogs in the shelters, she wanted to save me so I didn't end up there or the streets. There's just as many backyard breeding pups that need good homes as the ones that are already in the shelter. Mom wishes she can save all dogs and give then a loving home.
I'm a typical stubborn shih tzu who has a lil mans complex.
