*COURTESY POSTING FOR SHEBA* (see contact info below)

; ; Sheba has a Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/adoptsheba/

; ; *FOSTER NOTES* 10/24/16- We have been working on getting her socialized with our Milo dogs and it's going great so I'd love to update the post if I could. She goes on walks with them, relaxes with all of us in the evenings. She hasn't played with either, but has done some nose sniffing and tail wagging. She's still a little tentative and afraid around our crazy boy dog (Rooster, formerly Tucker) who's also a little afraid, but is calm and happy to see our girl (Egg, formerly Holly). They walk side by side, belly to belly on walks. '

; ; Sheba was surrendered by her owner after his house fell down! When she first arrived in foster care, she was anxious and completely untrained. However, now that she's been enrolled in obedience lessons she has become more comfortable in her surroundings and blossomed into a well-adjusted young puppy.

; ; Sheba has been attending training classes since January through Bad Rap and started taking Canine Good Citizen training. Her final test is scheduled for September 11th, and she's doing great! She learns quickly and with her superb recall ability, she now has a deep well of skills: sit, down, stay, wait, watch, leave it/take it, heel, paw (shake), and around.

; ; Sheba is a young, active dog who is up for anything: running, walking, cuddling, napping, or playing tug, fetch, or 'find it.' Sheba loves learning new things and would do best with a family that can continue her training and give her plenty of exercise and attention.

; ; Sheba is currently living in foster care with two other dogs, but would be best suited for a house where she is the only dog (she has some remaining dog aggression that her foster family is currently working on phasing out). She is well-socialized with people and very tolerant around young children.

; ; Overall, Sheba is a great catch. Intelligent, active, playfu

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.
