UPDATE!: Ody is looking for a new, more rural home! Please note that although he is currently in Bellingham WA, transport back to CA can be arranged if he seems like a great fit! Please send interest to after reading bio:

; Ody was adopted to a loving home in Washington from our sanctuary in Northern CA. He previously had trouble with being overprotective of his family and home several years prior, but had then spent several years with is at the sanctuary without showing this behavior. As his new home rarely had visitors it seemed like it could be a great fit, with a very loving and compassionate adopter! Unfortunately, the neighborhood has proven to be too busy and too much for him and he is being leash reactive in a way that he had not in the past. Despite her many many efforts to help him feel at ease in the new environment it has become clear that the very low key home in a neighborhood is not enough and he should likely again be a country bumkin' as he had been at our sanctuary. His adopter would like to continue to foster him while we network to find him a new better suited home rather than return him, so we are going to network him in both locations. If you live in No Ca and it seems like this beautiful boy could be a great fit, transport can be arranged! Please send any and all interest in Ody to !

; ; Former Bio as Nicky, before heading to Washington in Feb '16: Nicky is a very sweet, people oriented and loving dog. He is tall, lanky and elegant. Nicky is graceful, gentle natured and affectionate. He is a highly bonding dog who will lean into you for love while gazing up at you in a way that melts your heart!

; ; Though Nicky plays well with almost all other dogs, he can sometimes react to male dogs that act aggressively/ alpha towards him so he would not be well suited for a dog park situation. He would do better with a canine friend in the home rather than an uncontrolled social situation. He i

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.
