Sweet girl, said to be good with kids, fine with other dogs - a bit barky at cats perhaps...sweet, obedient dog that was kept outside - well it's time this sweet girl got to be a family pet, an important part of a family! She deserves to be living with people who care and have the love and patience to train her - though she is bright and will readily learn about all the good things in life - like cuddling on the sofa, laying on a dog bed - inside! A part of a family pack. Come meet this sweetie today, she is spayed and ready to go home!!

; *Foster Report* 11/26/16 Cha cha is a little shy but warms up quickly. She is a very good walker - we put a harness on her each morning and she did great on walks all over the neighborhood and town. She did very well with our other (9 year old male) dog - they ate together, walked together and hung out in the same room together without any problems. She did show aggression (warning growls) towards him on a few occasions, but only when she was seated in our laps and he started to approach - so I think she has a tendency to get a little jealous/territorial over her human of choice if another dog threatens to usurp her position but in general gets along well with other dogs.She adapted very well to crate training and seems well on her way to being potty trained. We only had a week with her but she definitely seemed to be getting it and there were only a few small/minor accidents.She sleeps very well - no disturbances from her over night at all.Overall she seems like a very sweet and mellow dog who would like nothing better than to sit in your lap or cuddle up with you on the couch! She is tiny and requires little strenuous exercise. She was good with both our kids..'

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.
