SANCTUARY UPDATE 8/25/15: Django is beautiful and intelligent boy who is looking for the right family to give him love and guidance. He has shown himself to be a happy and loving dog but not being settled into a home has caused him to have some caution in new situations recently. He is a very nice dog who does need some stability, continued socialization and training to have him be on the right track! He is a very intelligent dog and with the right people to guide him he will be a great addition to the right family. This boy has been bounced around many times in his young life and he very much wants to find a forever family! We are not ruling out that he may be able to have any canine friends, but we would not recommend him for a home where dog parks and social interactions were imperative as he has initiated altercations with other dogs before coming to the sanctuary. He is alpha with other dogs, but may get along with some females. The ideal home for Django would be with loving and experienced folks who can help to guide this young sweet boy to help him settle into the great dog he is!

; *Return notes* 3/20/15 Django is a handsome male Retriever/Shepherd mix who is estimated to be a little over a year old. He is a sweet, intelligent boy who is looking for a forever home that will give him plenty of love and attention.

; He is very sweet with a lot of puppy-like, happy energy, though he is also capable of being mellow, especially indoors. One of his favorite activities is to sit by the window and contemplate the outdoor scene (without barking!) He also loves to romp in the living room with his many toys and is learning to catch them in midair (to the accompaniment of great cheering from us). He also enjoys a good game of hide-and-seek. He is house trained and is exceptionally good indoors. He learns his boundaries quickly, doesn?t chew, climb on furniture, or root thr

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.
