Sanctuary Manager Update: I am just head over heals for this little dog! He is just the absolutely sweetest, cuddly, funny and submissive boy, ONCE you have gained his trust. With Flash once you are in, your in and can do no wrong, but that does take a little bit of time. He can act like a tiny tough guy by barking when someone comes in the office, but it is out of fear and feeling like he needs to protect himself or his loved ones. When Flash feels secure and is surrounded by friends he is an outgoing, prancing and dancing little dreamboat! Truly a delightful and loving little dog that will be just an amazing companion for the right compassionate and experienced person. He is currently our office dog so we can maximize our cuddle time together and also so he can get used to people walking in and out and learning that every time it is the friendly face of a staff member so he can abandon his post. In public he does not sound the alarm, but if stranger tried to grab him or physically force him past his comfort level it would scare him so he would need you to help him feel safe by asking people to be respectful and gentle with him. We want to be clear that if he does feel cornered or threatened, that he may react by biting, so it is very important that his new person would take care to make sure this did not happen and continued to work with him. He would ideally have a low key, adult only home where he would not need to interact with strangers unless they are aware of his issues

; Former Bio:; Flash has had some rough times in his past, due to being fearful, and his possessiveness.... so far he is being very good - but he will need a savvy adopter. Flash bonds quickly to women, though he likes men and kids but has fairly myopic desires towards the one he loves. Flash is house-trained, and good with other dogs 85% of the time, harasses the cat a bit but nothing serious, though a fearful cat would have a hard time with him perhaps. He takes treats with a gentle

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.
