Sanctuary Update: Andy is a loving boy who has good house manners and is more than ready for a family to fall for him! He is eager to please and although he is still an active 7 yr old guy and would love to go for long walks, hikes etc.. he is also happy to cuddle and just spend time with people who love him. Andy is just immediately friendly to all people that he meets and would be a fine choice for a family looking for a loving companion. Andy does need one on one interactions with other dogs as he can come on strong at first and if the dog reacts by freezing, acting alpha or showing body language that he is not comfortable with, he may be reactive. This has mainly been with other males. He currently lives with an alpha female and they get along just fine! He has also lived with submissive and neutral males without any issues, but would not get along with alpha males. He is just not a guy that we would recommend for unexpected face to face meetings or dog parks. He would be best suited as a member of a family where he could meet new doggy friends on one one. Please send applications to meet Andy to sanctuary@milofoundation.org; ; Original Bio:Andy is an athletic and outgoing guy! Eager to participate and to check out the world. He gets along well with other friendly and outgoing dogs, but would prefer a home without alpha males. Andy is a handsome boy looking for an active home and would equally love to go on hikes and cuddle up for some one on one time with the family. Andy is treat motivated and eager to please so should do very well with any obedience training, such as not jumping up for a hug. Please send interest to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

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.
