Fonzy is a very sweet dog, who was adopted from us when he was a puppy. Sadly the family who owned him moved and could not take him with them.

; Fonzy needs a lot of activity and space! He is athletic and eager to play, to run and to have adventures! He needs activity and exercise and a relatively dog savvy home to excel. Confinement and frustration at going from a house to a kennel is really not beneficial to him...we hope to find him a great home soon!

; *Owner surrender notes* 6/10/16 He has mellowed out with the second dog in the home after we put him in formal training. We have him successfully crate and potty trained. He knows all the basic commands and is obedient at home. He loves rope toys, belly rubs and cuddling. We had two small children he was very sweet with. Overall he is a pretty hard headed guy.'

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.
