Cece went up to our sanctuary for now.

; ; Cece is an alpha girl that is for sure. Fine as an only dog - fine with cats, okay with a small dog that is not an instigator or challenge too, but simplest to say she is great as an only dog with exercise needs etc - she can go to dog parks and on trails, be around dogs - but needs a handler who can be aware of her alpha tendencies and act accordingly - she will do anything for the ball and follow her person anywhere.... She is strong on leash - but with proper activity levels and lots of ball time (she is the absolute best ball dog, dropping it at your feet every time - and, she's fast!) She is fine and will follow her person / her ball/chuck-it anywhere! She loves riding in the car and is an affectionate companion.

; ; Cece is a good dog looking for a great home! She doesn't do well with Veterinary restraint', i.e. blood draws and such. She doesn't like being held down, or approached from the rear. For these reasons we are suggesting an adult, dog-savvy, active home for her.

; ; Previous foster notes: 'We've only had Cece a short time, but so far she has been wonderfully sweet and affectionate. She is very approachable and trusting around people and other dogs, no food-aggressive or destructive tendencies observed, and she has previously been around cats with no reported issues. More than anything else, she loves to play ball and will try to engage anyone who can give her some attention. Able to catch a ball mid-air, she will bring it right back to your feet for another throw. A beautiful girl with distinctive markings and an athletic build, she will be best suited for an active household or family that can provide her with a daily routine.'

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.
