Neo is a delightful little firecracker! He is a very happy and energetic guy who would love lots of playtime, snuggles and continued training. Milo pulled Neo from a shelter on his very last day, with the order destroy and dispose' on his paperwork! He was a stray that no one came to collect, so we gave him a new name for a new start in life.

Neo is extremely sweet and loves to be with people, he is friendly and happy to meet everyone! Neo does very well with holding his potty and during his time at the sanctuary we have taught him to settle into a crate as well. Although he initially did not like them one bit, he now associates them with positive things only and will quickly run to jump into his crate and wait for a treat/dinner.

Neo would do best in a home where he was not left alone for long extended hours and where he could be someones happy little sidekick. A ranch could be the ideal type of home for him however he would like to come inside along with the family. He is a very bonding and interactive dog who would likely do best in a home with another dog and or regular exercise if he were to be left alone, as he does get lonely. . Neo is very eager to please and should be a quick study with obedience training! This is a smart,sweet and energetic dog,all in one little 30lb package! Neo will make the right family, VERY happy!

; Sanctuary Update: ; Neo has lived with MULTIPLE dogs while here at the sanctuary, (of different sizes and genders) and has gotten along with them completely fine, but we do know that the other dogs should just not be super alpha or overly submissive. He has shown himself to be quite leash reactive to other dogs and is therefore looking for a certain home that will work with him on this, or where this would not be an issue. He gets along well with dogs otherwise, as long as no one is on a leash. He is just a little guy but prefers to be the alpha dog, so prefers to be friends with dogs who are comfortable with themselves, don'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.
