Sanctuary Update: Although this pretty girl is just delightful and sweet as can be once she trusts you, she was not properly socialized when she was younger and will keep her distance at first if given the chance. She does not bark when meeting new people at the sanctuary or act aggressive towards new people here, she just has a difficult time letting her guard down enough to interact. We have worked with this by teaching her that he needs to double tap us on the arm with both feet before eating, and it has helped her come out of her shell immensely.

; Tasha has shown in a foster home that, once she bonded, she became protective over her foster mom when strangers would approach them. This is due to the fact that her person was helping to build her confidence, but she did not yet understand that other people did not mean them harm. For this reason she needs to be in a home without very many visitors, ideally in a rural setting. Of course if her new person was willing and able to work with her on continued socialization, this could ALL change for her! Tasha can not live with cats, and although she gets along extremely well with her large male pen mate, she has had trouble interacting with other dogs. Due to her issues, we do not recommend her for a home with small children.

; Original Bio from 2011: One of three beautiful teenage girls - who had two of their brothers come to us the next day - so we got five teenage dorks - who are beautiful and sweet as can be! Athletic and a bit under-socialized....need to catch up on their learning, but they are willing participants. Clearly they were born in a backyard and not allowed inside, and never walked on a leash, nor experienced much of the world, or enough people time!Tasha is the most under-socialized it seems.

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.
