Sanctuary update: Shadow is looking for an adult only home that is very active and well versed in training. he has issues with resource guarding and is fence reactive to the point that he will zone out' and forget that the person on the other side is a friend. He has great potential, but this is a dog that wants a job, activity and training! He has taken his resource guarding to the point that he has actually bitten people and other dogs. He needs an outlet for his energy and the right person to work on his behavioral issues. He is very food motivated and we have been working to teach him to sit and wait for his bowl, and to eat once he has been told to 'get it'. Shadow loves and craves attention and affection. If you have a predictable, adult only home and feel that you are willing and able to give Shadow what he needs to be a happy and content companion, please email us at; ; Past Notes: His main issues are resource guarding and high drive. He is very ball motivated, He is a great swimmer and it is serves as a great anxiety reducer for him. He will charge off and should be on a long line. He does return. He is a natural hunter and needs extensive training for his behavior issues. Someone with patience and understanding.; I truly love him.'

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.
