Aubin is an extremely intelligent, loyal and purely devoted ranch dog, without a ranch to call her own! Aubin is an very high bonding girl who wants nothing more then to be right by your side. Aubin's dream home would be on a ranch, following her person around for the daily chores and cuddling up with them at night inside a warm house. She gets overstimulated if there is too much happening around her and does not have the ability to free roam and be with you. In these situations, stuck behind a fence or in a kennel, Aubin deals with this with an obsessive habit of tail chasing as an outlet when frustrated. When she is nervous in a new situation she can do the same, so for her own sake she really would do best out side of the city

She really is a very loving girl, who needs someone who will love her just as deeply in return, and provide her with the stable yet unconfined home that she craves and deserves. She can become frightened when handled unexpectedly by strangers, so we would not recommend her to a home with someone who has, or may have young children in the future. We do not feel that she would intentionally try to hurt them, but may nip if handled roughly etc. On a ranch with plenty of space and love to go around, Aubin could live with another dog peacefully, but can get possessive over her food and people when confined in close quarters. She has absolutely impeccable recall and was our free-roaming sanctuary dog for quite some time along with one of our Aussies, during this time her tail chasing started to dissipate and she started to happily settle into herself, yet very unfortunately she started to run along the fence line of the dog yards, causing the dogs with barrier issues to act out aggressively, and we had to make the decision to change the situation for her safety and theirs.

During this time Aubin had shown herself to be trustworthy with free roaming cats and our live stock, and to be great little sidekick. She is a true country cattle dog at

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.
