Please read Nakita's full bio:

; What a beautiful, active and happy girl! She is all smiles and absolutely loves people. She is in need of a home with very good fencing, and positive outlets for her desire to run. People-oriented and social girl, who we know has a history in her past of going over the fence her previous owners had. She has not gotten out of the six foot fencing we use here at the sanctuary

; Nakita is a loving girl looking for a breed-savvy adopter. She does not do well with many other dogs unfortunately. She does great with several males, but no females or dog parks for this pretty girl. She does NOT do well when meeting dogs through a barrier or on leash, but with proper direction this could possibly change. Her new family would have to be prepared to work with her on this if she were to encounter dogs while out on walks etc. as she does not have leash manners to speak of and would need to be kept separate from other dogs while learning not to be leash reactive. She lives with a male dog currently and gets along with him very well, except does need to be separated during meal time as she is not a lady like eater and seems to think that ALL food must be for her and does not like to take no for an answer. ; ; 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 who will of course love her and always treat her compassionately, but will set clear and completely consistent rules that she will be sure to test and challenge at times. We are looking for a home for her with someone who understands that although they are fluffy and adorable, Husky's can be a challenge for soft spoken person who does not know how or is not comfortable with being a leader that their dog must look to for directi

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.
