Sanctuary Update: Sweet Babyface has come up to the sanctuary as he has shown that he would do best with a patient, low key home. He has some issues with resource guarding (including his' people) and does not have great bite inhibition. That said he is a very sweet and bonding boy and we have not yet had any biting incidents while here with us. We feel that he would be just a wonderful companion for the right person in a predictable and loving home that will show him that he does not need to nip when he is uncomfortable. Most of the time he is a happy, open faced little munchkin that likes to cuddle and gets along very well with his doggy companions and we feel that with proper guidance he will get past this. 8/10/16; ; Former Bio: Babyface was found in the streets of Oakland. He bonds very quickly with his people and is dog friendly. Babyface is also cat-friendly! He's a funny little fellow, wiggly and happy - but worried when in a crate - happy, silly and fun-loving when out with people who want to play and cuddle with him.

; Best with older children, not toddlers in his face and making him feel cornered.

; *Foster Report* 5/22/16 'He is very treat driven, on potty schedule but not quite housebroken. Hates the crate, sleeps at foot of bed. Not good with small children. Good with some dogs but not all dogs. Babyface is very protective.'

; Foster update 4/27/16: 'Babyface is doing very well here with his foster family. We now have him eating his meals in his crate with no complaints. He will double up in my dog's crate and will stay there for up to an hour without crying. He is very protective of the house and our family and alerts is if there is a knock on our front door or if a new adult enters the house. He loves playing with his foster brother and is no longer frightened of anything. He will follow me room to room and never leaving my side of I would let him. He will be a great family pet and is no longer nipping.'

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.
