Luna is a beautiful and sweet girl who gets along well with people and other dogs. Sadly she needed to be returned to us after being adopted as a pup. Her family loved her VERY much but due to her prey drive towards the landlords cats, and her ease at jumping over the 5ft fence, it eventually became clear that she really does need taller fencing and perhaps a more rural living situation without cats on the property where she can be with her family most of the time as she gets anxious when left alone. The ideal would be someone that can bring their dog to work, or that works from home. Luna LOVES playing at doggy day care, so that would be an option on days when she needed to be left alone for longer periods. She can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but shows no aggression, she just prefers low key introductions. Luna is good with children, but can knock them down accidentally, so older children would be preferable in the home. Please read her adopters detailed notes and email us at sanctuary@milofoundation.org if you think you have the right home for Luna, and are looking for an otherwise just lovely and loyal companion!

; Adopter Notes: Luna is an incredible and beautiful dog. She barks only when she is protecting her home, absolutely loves long walks/runs, and is very social with other dogs. She is very smart, and able to learn new directions and tricks quickly. She follows all the basic commands and will wait until released at meal time. She travels easily in the car, does not destroy the interior when she is left alone for brief periods. She also does not typically destroy things when left alone, but despite many training interventions and incrementally longer periods of time alone, when left for longer than 30 minutes she becomes anxious and visibly worried, can bark and sometimes chewing and scratching at the door frame.

; She is very happy when she can run off leash, and is an extremely athletic and agile dog. She can jump 5 feet into the air

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.
