PLEASE READ JULIE'S ENTIRE BIO BEFORE ASKING ABOUT HER. THANKS!

; ; Julie is now an older girl, but is still quite active and and does not show signs of slowing down any time soon! Julie came to us after her former person surrendered her to a shelter in 2008. He loved her, but he lived on a busy street with his fence facing the sidewalk, and Julie was protective of the home and yard. She would bark at people passing by on her sidewalk' and her dad felt that she would do best in a more rural spot or with younger folks who knew how to redirect her behavior. She is, and was, very sweet to people when properly introduced, but through a fence etc she feels that it is her job to be the protector. It is quite easy for us here at the sanctuary to introduce Julie to all new staff members with a bit of food for bribery and perhaps a quick walk. She is very confidant and outgoing in comfortable surroundings, but we have seen her become shy and nervous when we have brought her into the office etc to meet new people. In these cases she looks to those that she knows and loves for direction/comfort.

; Julie gets along well with most dogs, but as she can be bouncy and a bit pushy with them, she is often best suited with a confidant male companion rather than an alpha female. She would not be well suited for a home with cats, and given that she has tendencies toward being protective and also sometimes nervous, we are looking for an adult only home for Julie. She is a silly girl who may keep you on your toes at times, but all in all Julie is a loving, active and bonding girl who would love a rural home of her own! Please send applications for Julie 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.
