NOTES FROM THE SANCTUARY. Harry is a highly bonding, cuddly and happy boy, but this is after he has gotten acquainted with you and realizes that you are his friend. Until then he does not like to be cornered etc and will put on a tough guy act if he is safely behind a fence. He is however, truly an exceptional boy who can warm up VERY quickly and has made great progress during his time at the sanctuary! He is a favorite of the Sanctuary manager and we would very much like to find him a rural and loving home.

; ; Former Bio: A very handsome, though somewhat insecure boy - HARRY needs a home with a savvy dog handler who will ensure that he feels safe. Once comfortable, he loves other dogs, and after an initial warm-up session, is very friendly with people - he just needs some time to observe and take things slowly . . . He had a rough upbringing, and then was surrendered to a vet by someone who was having a tough time herself . . . . he's living in a big yard up at our Sanctuary. If you have time to invest in a dog who needs love, structure, and lots of time to play with other dogs, consider Harry. Given his shyness and insecurity, we would not recommend Harry for a household with children under 16 years age, and/or lots of comings and goings of people. He needs training and structure as well as lots of love and activity!

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.
