What a beautiful, active and happy girl! Nakita is all smiles and absolutely loves people. ; She is a loving girl looking for a breed-savvy adopter. She gets along nicely with all people and some friendly male dogs, but no females or dog parks for this pretty girl as she would likely get herself into some sticky situations with the other strong ladies there. She does NOT do well when meeting dogs through a barrier or on leash, but with proper direction this could possibly improve. Her ideal adopter would either have experience with leash reactive dogs or would be prepared to work with trainers to help her react more appropriately when seeing other dogs on leash. She lives with a male dog currently and gets along with him very well. She does, however, believe all the food in the world is hers and while she doesn't act aggressively with people or dogs regarding food, she has no problem taking food that doesn't belong to her and will happily knock them over to make this a reality. For this reason she does need to be separated from other dogs during feeding time and should never be free fed'

; Nakita's previous owners mentioned she could be quite the escape artist as she is very good at jumping fences, because of this she is in need of a home that has very good fencing and owners with the ability to get her the mental stimulation, and physical activity a smart energetic girl like her needs. However, she has not tried or been able to escape from our six foot fences here at the Sanctuary.

; It is very easy to fall in love with her beautiful face and completely charming personality, but before applying please do stop to think if you would be able to give her the exercise and training that she would need in order to reach her full potential. She needs someone who is comfortable with taking the lead. Someone who will love her and always treat her compassionately, but will set very clear and consistent rules, which they are willing to stick to when she decides to t

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.
