Please read before sending interest in adopting. Although Dallas can be a sweet boy and seek out attention, he does very often have issues with being touched and can and will bite, even if it is someone that he knows and that he can otherwise be happy and bouncy to see. Because he was having trouble in the bustling environment of Point Richmond, he came up to the sanctuary to decompress and for us to work on his trust building. He in particular was seeming to have trouble with older woman, which is not something that we see often. At this time it would be difficult to adopt Dallas out without making a break through with him. He is never going to be a boy that should be with children and would want to adopt him out to a quiet and predictable home, but our hope is to get him to the point where he can fully bond and let down his guard with at least one person so they can love each other fully. You really can see that he wants to love and trust, and is not acting timid with us, but he will jump up for love and then realize that he is past his comfort zone and may snap out of sudden fear. We will update his bio once we feel that we have made progress with him and he is ready to try a new wonderful chapter in his life! If you have experience working with pups with bite inhibition and trust issues, please send interest in Dallas to; ; Initial Bio before full trust issues and lack of bite inhibition were realized: Dallas loves to dance! When he first arrived at Milo, Dallas was hiding under six pounds of fur and dirt. However, after a shampoo and trim, he became a brand new dog with a fresh attitude to match! Dallas is very shy when first meeting people and has a hard time warming up, but once he feels comfortable he?s a completely different dog who loves to dance for affection, whether he's on two paws or four.

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.
