Sheila is an intelligent, bonding and lovely dog! She is a small peanut, only about 40lbs..but looks larger in her photos. Sheila is looking fro a home where she will get to be someone's sidekick. She would likely want to be the only dog in the home, and we would not recommend dog parks for this otherwise amazing girl! She has had a few doggy friends, all large, self assured and mellow males. She loves all people, but was having issues with one family member that was having some disability issues. She is friendly with all visitors etc and we are the family both feel that it was more of an issue with the one particular person, rather than a behavioral issue.

; Sheila would be a wonderful choice for anyone that wants an amazing, highly bonding companion, and would not need for her to be in doggy social'situations. She is a great size and would love to find a home where she can be with her loved ones most of the time. Please send applications for Sheila 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.
