Shyla has been returned and was highly stressed at Milo Point Richmond - so she has gone up to our Sanctuary for awhile to decompress....

; * RETURN NOTES * Very friendly with people. A little reactive behind a barrier like a fence. Loves to walk and play. No problems being bathed or brushed. Awesome dog in general. Needs some work with other dogs and needs a puppy proof yard. Affectionate, sweet, young dog! Ready for her forever home. Treat motivated.

; Shyla is doing well. She sleeps in home every day, very well house broken. She is becoming a good watch dog. Has issues with our other dog. A lot of competition. I think they both are type 'A'. She does fairly well on a lead unless distracted by a critter. Around the yard she is constantly at heel when I'm doing chores. Loves to be brushed, no issues taking baths. Very loving pet. You have to keep an eye on her, very strong and really quick! She is learning sit leave it, heel. Likes to bark. We use a slow feed bowl, as she likes to gulp her food down.'

; ; *Foster Notes* 10/25/15 'She likes to play with other dogs but will bark at first. She is really playful and likes to chase ball.'

About Milo Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

THE MILO FOUNDATION was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

It was a learning process for both Milo and Lynne, his "seeing eye person". Lynne developed a series of taps to communicate with Milo. A tap on the left or right flank would instruct Milo which direction to go. And a tap on the rear meant 'stop'. In the park, Milo's feet read the ground like Braille, where he bounded around in circles with his nose in the air, barking with joy.

Given a chance to live, Milo became a happy, beloved dog. The experience with Milo led Lynne to learn about other animals who needed a chance - abandoned and stray dogs and cats who fill city shelters - which led to the founding of the nonprofit no-kill sanctuary: The Milo Foundation.

After a full and happy life, Milo passed away in August of 1998. He was the perfect spirit and namesake for a sanctuary dedicated to saving the lives of creatures who deserved, like Milo, a chance at a good life.

Today, The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found. Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. Milo houses cats, dogs, puppies and kittens - occasionally farm animals and other domestic creatures find their way to the sanctuary.
