; ; Molly is an 11-y.o. spayed Boston Terrier/Chihuahua mix who lived her first nine years with an elderly widow. At first there was another dog in the home, a Weimeraner, and the two dogs got along very well. When the older dog died, Molly enjoyed being the only dog in the household, and grew accustomed to special treatment, like sleeping on the bed at night. When her owner died, Molly went to stay with the local veterinarian, who has ?fostered? her for the last 2-3 years. Unfortunately, the vet can no longer keep her.

; ; Molly does well with other dogs, but would probably prefer a calm household without too many distractions. She is spayed, up to date with vaccinations, and housebroken. She is very affectionate and prefers to spend most of her time inside with her owner(s). She would probably do best in a home without young children, without cats, and without birds or other pets. Another dog as a companion would be fine, but not necessary.

; ; If you are interested in Molly, please email for more information. Thank you very much for considering her!'

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.
