Mopsy is a sweet girl who can take a little time to adjust - she absolutely adores some people right off the bat - women are easier for her to fall for - and she loves kids that are fairly calm, kid volunteers at Milo walk her and she is tail up and wagging and then wanting to snuggle on laps - but at other times she is reserved and avoids some people - she is not a fan of deep voices, loud noises. Mopsy has a bad heart murmur/ heart valve issue!

; ; * FOSTER UPDATE* 11/28/16- Mopsy has been with us for about a month now. She is a very sweet dog and continues to get along great with everyone in the house (family of four including two teenage sons as well as a black miniature poodle). She is a bit shy and tends to scamper away from people as they walk around the house, but she is also very charming, playful, and affectionate. Overall she is a very pleasant, nice, gentle dog to have around.; - She loves to play with toys and go on walks. She has learned to 'sit' for a treat.; - Her appetite is good and she has put on weight since she has been here (she was very skinny when she arrived).; - So far we have observed no outward signs that her heart murmur is impacting her in any way. She has a lot of energy and is fine with extensive exercise.; - She seems to gain confidence from our dog so she may be happy in a situation where she is not the only dog. On the other hand, she loves attention from her humans so she may love being an only dog too!; - We have observed none of the issues that the previous foster family had with her guarding certain people in the house. Also, she has not exhibited any behavior that she is a ?flight riský ? she has made no attempts to get out the front door when it is open.; My evaluation of Mopsy is that she would make a good match for an individual, couple, or family either by herself or with another dog. She is a very nice dog and doesn?t seem to have any behavioral issues aside from the shyness which is not too severe. We don?t have a ca

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.
