Sanctuary Notes: Maddie is a beautiful girl who needs someone special. She needs someone that will take a lot of time with her to build her trust and will not expect her to ever be a social butterfly. She does not act out aggressively and is more of a shrinking violet that will keep her distance from you if given the chance. That said, she did once bite out of fear when cornered by a stranger that was leaning towards her with no way to escape. Maddie loves to go for walks in the country with those she trusts, and once she does trust you she will approach through the safety of fencing to take treats, will smile at you and follow you at arms reach and will let you sit with her and pet her.. Maddie is an absolutely beautiful girl looking for a very quiet, rural and adult home, with wonderful people that will help her to learn to trust them. Maddie gets along very well with most other dogs and will play bow and bounce out of glee when she sees her best canine friends. Their trust in you helps her to realize that you are not as much of a danger. Maddie does show great potential to bond with someone, and we feel that in the right home she could fully let down her guard with those in her family. ;

; Former Foster dad's notes: Maddie is a beautiful, sweet, self-sufficient 2 year old German; Shepherd/Belgian Tervuran mix. She loves running around outside, tossing around toys, as well as relaxing or taking a nap outside in the shade. She doesn't bark or whine, but will let out a good howl once in a while. She's housebroken, but has had a couple of accidents when eyes weren't on her at all times.She likes going for long walks, and is really good on a leash, but can occasionally be stubborn.

; Maddie is special, being that she's under-socialized and extremely timid, especially around males, and will require a lot of time and patience to build up her confidence and trust. Seeing as she's shy and easily spooked, Maddie would succeed with a calm female owner, who can devote

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.
