Braxton is a handsome ~40 pound, cattledog mix. He is quite the funny character, with an awkward gait due to having had an FHO after he was hit by a car (he was left in the shelter untreated.) He also has a nerve condition in a front leg - and a swallowing disorder for which he now takes two pills a day (down from three) and is doing GREAT! So yes, Braxton is not your average happy-go-lucky dog - but he is a wonderful dog who is truly adoptable and ready for a home!

; Braxton gets along well with all female dogs and most males. He would prefer not to live with young alpha male dogs and is looking for a home without strangers dropping in unannounced as he likes to protect his home and family and he can't tell the difference between a pool boy and a robber unless they have been properly introduced as a welcomed friend. He is a great guy who has been through alot and would love a home of his own and a family to play and cuddle with.

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.
