Krista is adorable sweet girl ready to begin her life in a caring forever home. She is great with other dogs but needs time warming up to people as she can be shy.

; ; *FOSTER NOTES* 4/18/17- This sweet little dog is very quiet & shy and needs a forever home. She can be a little nervous at first, but will warm up to you once she begins to gain your trust. She'll cuddle up to you and likes to play with dog toys. She's potty trained and will sleep through the night. She loves walks and; does really well on the leash. Overall, Krista would be a perfect companion dog, with or without other animals around. She might do best with one person in the home and a quiet environment, but can get used to other people in the home.'

; ; 'Foster Notes* 02/26/17 'Krista is a sweet little dog. She is very quiet (I didn?t hear her bark for the 3 weeks I had her), she walks well on a leash, and she likes to be by your side. She slept on my bed near my head, and when I was on the sofa, she liked to be right next to me. She is mostly potty trained, and knew to use puppy pads I left on the floor when I was gone all day.

; ; However, Krista is an extremely anxious dog. She would explore the house only when I wasn?t home; when I was home, she would sit on the sofa and carefully watch what I was doing. On days when I was home all day, I?d have to bring food and water to her, on the sofa, or else she wouldn?t eat or drink. Krista would get very scared when I had her leash in my hand (running in circles, and sometimes peeing out of nervousness), although once she had it on, our walks were great. Anything new ? visitors to my house, strange sounds, vacuum cleaners ? made her shake and cower and/or run in circles.

; ; Krista warmed up slowly, getting more and more comfortable, each day that I had her. I think she?d be great for someone with a lot of patience, who wanted a quiet, lovable little companion for walks and lounging on the sofa.'

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.
