Owner Jennifer shared his adorable story.

"I had a dog before Milo named Boden who passed away and Milo is his nephew," she shared.

"Milo was 10 weeks old when he joined our family."

"He is very self-confident, loves nature, hiking, and cooking."

"We also raise monarchs, so they are always in the garden, and Milo’s very used to having them around."

"My favorite thing about Milo is how loving and caring he is. He always makes sure everyone is doing well."

"Even when you feed him a meal, he will come over to you in the middle and give you a kiss as a thank you."

"He’s done that since he was a tiny puppy."

"He was a born butterfly king."

We absolutely have to agree!

"Milo loves to cook his own treats."

"His favorite ingredients are peanut butter and carrots."

"He also loves to hike and play at the beach."

"Any place he can run around and have fun."

"We raise monarch butterflies to help grow their population."

"There are a lot of predators that can kill the caterpillars, so we try to help them through their stages and release them when they are butterflies."

"Milo loves it!"

"We have so many butterflies in the garden."

"Milo is a natural model."

"He loves getting pictures taken of him. He will find beautiful spots and stop for pictures. Like he will stand in the middle of a flower field and wait for a picture." Fancy more unusual animal friendships? Scroll on!
