Gone to our Sanctuary for a visit with her sister! Still up for adoption of course!

; Weaver is a one of a kind girl waiting for her forever home. She is super dog-friendly and opens up to people once she's built her trust. She does need to build her confidence but given her past, she's progressed in so many ways. She's very sweet & would benefit from a home with another dog. When she first arrived , she and her siblings were very shy and over time she's come to know and love the staff. She greets us with cuddles & kisses and follows us wherever we go. She is crate trained and we believe she's also potty trained. Weaver is very treat motivated and is SUPER smart, learning her way & routines at our facility in a few days. Her recall potential is super solid and would love to accompany her person on hikes. Keep in mind that Weaver doesn't give a bond right away but we can definitely give you insight to how this girl is once comfortable. Her siblings have all done great in their adoptive homes, and we feel Weaver would be the same.

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.
