Please read Cassie's full bio before applying.

; Cassie is a house trained, openly friendly girl, who rides well in the car, and gets along with other dogs. She is an active and happy girl, but has had some trouble in the past with adjusting to new people coming into the home, once she feels bonded with her family. We have not seen this behavior at all here at the sanctuary, and we have known her for quite some time now, but we do want to let adopters know this, as the behavior did cost her the family she was misguidedly trying to protect. This never happened while out and about in public, and in these situations she is very well mannered and social. We are looking for an adult home for Cassie, with folks who will be willing to work on this issue should it arise again. She really is highly bonding, cuddly and slightly goofy girl. In her next home she will however need someone to teach her that they do not need her to protect them from the dangers' of visiting friends, or to go settle in a different room when they have visitors.

; Cassies original bio, before she was returned for nipping a stranger inside her home: Social, nicely mannered, great in the car, great in a crate, good on leash, great with other dogs, though not a submissive dog. Cassie (formerly Cayenne) is spicy, and she can move, but she is a good family dog, friendly and happy, and eager to have a home!

; She is smart, agile, sweet, and definitely part Husky! She needs a well fenced yard. She will need to bond well before going off leash, but she is smart and people social, and very good! Great with other dogs - but not a pushover. A terrific dog. Not for the faint of heart, or first timers necessarily. She is house-trained and well mannered.

; If you would like to learn more about this very loving girl who craves another chance at a forever home, 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.
