Beauty went up to the Milo Sanctuary for a break in September of 2014 - and is still actively looking for a home! She is an active dog. Beauty is a cool dog in many ways - just needs a dog savvy home.

; ; Beauty is a delightful dog. She passed all temperament tests with flying colors. She is wonderful with kids, and people of all ages, and terrific with most all other dogs. She is playful, yet calm on leash, and attentive, listening and wanting to please. She does need some regular exercise, ongoing socialization, and some training but she is attentive and wants to please. Affectionate sweetheart of a dog. She can be sensitive and can get nervous in new situations, but with some kind guidance she comes right back out of her shell!

; ; NO CATS in the home for Beauty!

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.
