Update: Poppy is now back at the Milo sanctuary near Willits. She is a wonderful girl, but has shown that she needs a family that will help her past her fear based reaction to some strangers. She is just as sweet as can be with proper introductions and we feel confidant that she will outgrow this with guidance.

; Poppy is a happy, wiggly and sweet girl! This beautiful lady loves to play with other dogs, and is friendly and outgoing. Poppy's breed listing is our best guess. She may have some bully breed in the mix, but she looks very much like a smaller sized Dalmatian and Border Collie, with a slender face and neck. What we DO know is that Poppy is a cuddly, happy, and sweet little lady, who will be a fantastic addition to any active and loving home! She is a gorgeous dog who is so ready for her forever home!

; Poppy is very devoted, adoring of people, and protective of the home (door-bell alert barking). She is a high energy and active girl. She's pretty good on house-training, she's young a bit of a chewer and needs watching - she's still puppy-ish, she fancies herself a lap dog when she can!

; Poppy is smart, responsive and alert - she loves to race and wrestle with other dogs. She will need a savvy adopter able to train her and be aware of her stranger-danger' mode. If you would like to meet this adorable little lady, please send applications to

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.
