Transferred to Milo sanctuary 4/29/16.; Sanctuary Update : Bozworth has been a very sweet and loving guy with the entire staff. He is a big sweet goof that loves attention. He and our big alpha girl Niki get along extremely well and can fully be trusted to be alone with each other, although we do feed them separately to be safe. Bosworth has been trained to jump into his crate at meal time and can stay in the crate for some time after without putting up any fuss. He had some issues with house training in a foster home, but now being able to use the crate as a training tool will certainly come in handy! When walking by the other dog yards he does get worked up and attempt to fence fight with them if allowed, so it would be ideal for his person to be strong and training minded especially if you live in an area where he could encounter them on walks etc. but the ideal home for Bosworth would be in a country setting with dog savvy folks, either as an only dog or with one other female dog that he has proven to get along well with during a meet and greet here at the sanctuary. Big, loving and handsome guy!

; Bio before sanctuary transfer: ; Handsome, big white Shepherd. He is easy going, and a good walking partner. Though he pulls initially, he calms down. Gentle and sweet with children, loves rides in the car. A loving and loyal addition for a family or couple with time to share with their dog.

; Bozworth does better solo, he can have some attitude towards other dogs - if he is to be mixed, he needs a strong, dog savvy person with ability to do proper introductions, and read his body language - first he needs to know he is not in charge.

; Bozworth has a totally charming side to him - but he is not for the new initiate or the faint of heart! A big love with people, if you have a property and want a large presence who is also a sweetheart he's a great candidate!

; *Foster Return* 11/15/15 Bozworth loves to travel in vehicles and go on car rides. Needs more

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.
