A lovely Mom dog that arrived with her four, one month old pups. Very sweet girl, gentle and easy going, fine around other dogs and we hear she was fine walking by cats as well in her previous foster home in McFarland. A delightful dog, big, red girl with a docked tail.

; * Foster Notes* 9/1/16- Peri is an amazing dog! Her two favorite activities are walks/runs and sleeping outside in the sun. After her morning exercise, she spends the day lounging outside, and loves her belly rubs. She is incredibly easy going, and isn't phased at all by the chaos of our toddler twins. She is completely housebroken, and is perfectly happy sleeping in our bed while we are out during the day. At night she sleeps downstairs in a separate room and doesn't bark or make any noise. She knows how to sit, shake, and lie down. She is a love!'

; *Staff Notes* 7/18/16 'I (Amanda) took Peri out for a group hike and she did fantastic. She went out with 7 other dogs (of all sizes) in Wildcat Canyon for a 3 hour hike. She did have a few disagreements and was able to not hold any grudges. She loved to walk in the water, am not sure if she knows how to swim. Has great recall and will stick close to you or the other dogs. She was perfectly fine meeting strangers. I think she would do best in a home with a family or couple who has lots of dog experience would be best. She should be the only animal in the home.'

; *Foster Notes* 6/24/16 'Very loving, great with kids, trained to sit, shake hands, and lay down. Loves walks and playing with toys.' This sweet mom is not dog friendly right now and is looking for a her forever home.

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.
