Dora is an extremely loving and highly bonding girl who desperately wants a home of her own. Dora was adopted and returned to us by a family who loved her dearly, but for the reasons outlined below , were unable to keep her. She is a dog who very much would love to be part of a loving family that adored her and would give her all the love and hugs that she very much deserves. We are looking for a home for Dora without other dogs. During her timer in her home she had been renamed Sugar, but has been back to Dora since her return. Please do read the very descriptive notes from May 2011 from Dora's original Milo adoptive family;
; We adopted Sugar from Milo in October 2010. She is very lovable and she deserves someone who can handle all of her. Let me briefly describe Sugar: She weighs in at 80-90 pounds. She is completely house trained (can hold it for a very long time!) but does need to go out to relieve herself regularly. She will use the yard (we leave the door open all day) but loves a walk to do her business. She also loves to run - I run with her 3 times a week. She is GREAT traveling in a car, and loves to fetch. She does not chew or scratch furniture (she does chase flies!). Sugar is an A+ inside dog. She is fine being left alone for 5-6 hours at a time (albeit not everyday) if you clear your counters of all food! Her main indoor activity is to follow me around and sleep at my feet?honestly she can sleep for 20 hours a day. She LOVES people?any kind, any size, any uniform. She does not bark when people come to the door, or 30 kids descend upon the house. She looks scary but would lick the hand of any intruder (not bred for guard dog at this point although she looks the part!). She is very easy.

; Outside she is a bit of a challenge for us. She is somewhat nervous around other dogs and cannot yet be trusted off-leash. She needs and deserves someone who can work with her to overcome this.

; I cannot say enough how easy this girl i

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.
