Eddie is back - rescued from the Placer County Animal Shelter . . . his people did not reclaim him and he was scheduled to be put down.

; Notes from Eddie's foster Mom:; Eddie is a really nice dog. He really enjoys walks both off leash on the trails (were he does very well), as well as leashed street walks. He pulls on a regular leash, but walks well with the gentle leader harness. He has great recall. He can be a little barky when he sees the mail truck, but he calls off well. He likes to fetch, and loves to play with toys by flinging them in the air. He is always happy and not moody at all like my dog. He gets along with every dog he has met while with me. I suspect he shouldn't be with cats because squirrels are really something to chase, so I'm guessing cats wouldn't be good either. He is a great companion dog. He is a bit overweight, but has already slimmed down a bit and looking quite handsome.

; The only big negative I've noticed is that he shouldn't go to a home with little kids as he bit my son 's finger. My son was scratching Eddie's chest and Eddie raised his lip. My son pointed at him and said 'No' and Eddie bit him on the finger.'

; Eddie needs a clear alpha person and dog savvy adult home. In the right environment he will be a wonderful companion. A great walking buddy, and watchful home body.

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.
