PORKCHOP! What a loaf of love. A big teddy bear really. Super sweet boy who was surrendered to us from a family after being dumped at their house. He is very treat motivated & is very workable. With some training, this handsome boy will be a GREAT boy! MUST not be around dogs as he is not dog friendly.

; *FOSTER NOTES* 2/17/17- Porky is by far the best dog I've fostered thus far. He is such a bundle of love and an all around hunk. He has been so good with my 2 year old daughter who isn't the friendliest to animals ( lack of exposure on my part). He has had no problem with company coming in the house, he is accepting of females, males and kids- commotion seems not to bother him. He hardly barks and if he does it is so quiet my neighbors could not hear him. I live in an apartment complex so there is a lot of foot traffic and he did not mind even with the windows or door open. He is food motivated, so training will be a breeze. He had one accident in the house on the first night/ morning, but it is understandable as he was in a new environment. Porky did fine when he was left home alone for about 3-4 hours, he did not get in to anything, left my daughters toys alone and did not chew on any furniture. He also rides wonderfully in the car, he tagged along with me for my full day of errands and did not mind what so ever. Porky is a little too into other dogs while on walks, but is easily corrected/distracted with treats. Porkchop would be a great family dog or someone who just wants a companion, someone who doesn't favor dog parks and is open and willing to take the time to train him with his dog unfriendliness.

; **Foster Notes** Porky is such a ham... He is dashing, he is charming, an all-around easy-going, fun guy. He behaves well on walks. He is friendly with people. He enjoyed getting a bath. In addition, he has a face you simply want to grab. With time, training, and love, he is going to be a great companion. He makes it easy to give him the TLC that he needs

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.
