Chardonnay (nicknamed Chardie) is a very athletic, strong willed and agile girl. She would be great for someone who wants a big dog personality, in a smaller sized package. She LOVES people and would adore a home with plenty of exercise, room to run and lots of affection. With some proper boundaries, regular exercise and cuddles.. she is a fantastically devoted companion!

; Chardie is alert, attentive, and a good little watch dog. She does not get along well with most dogs, so no dog parks for Chardie and should should most likely be a single dog. She could potentially live with a larger dog that would put her in her place should she get overstimulated and a little too big for her britches, without actually harming her. She does have a doggy friend here at the sanctuary that she can go for walks with, but we can not house them together given that she becomes overstimulated and can redirect. We are looking for an adult only, rural home for Chardie as fast moving kids, joggers, skate boards etc are too much for this munchkin, and in the wrong setting she may forget herself and nip. She is however a truly loving little dog. This sweet little firecracker wants very much to please and will make the right person very happy as long as she gets all the activity and love that she needs and deserves.

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.
