The beautiful tri-color Walker hound was left in a foster home for ten days without any food, water, or care. The county shelter picked her up and she's now found her way to Milo! The gorgeous girl walks well on leash, rides great in the car, and is house- and crate-trained.

; Kaweah is loyal, loving, and affectionate and exhibits decent recall skills. Occasionally she will give chase to squirrels or birds, but is not great around horses. Kaweah would be best suited for a home with older children and adults (the unexpected movements from babies and toddlers unsettle her).; Since Kaweah is a purebred hound, she will need a lot of exercise in an area with a secure perimeter. She loves hiking and trips to the dog park (where she can be trusted to play well with others).; If you're interested in this pretty puppy, come meet Kaweah today!

; ** FOSTER NOTES** 10/11/16- Kaweah is a very beautiful Treeing Walker Coonhound, a great girl for all hound lovers who know and understand these complex animals. Judging by her behavior, we guess that she may never have been a pet; this is not unusual for a hunting dog. She has worked hard to become a family dog and gets along with our other hound and our terrier but she has had to learn to share and not just take what she wants. She walks well on a leash until she sees another dog and then can be dog aggressive. We are working with her on this and she is progressing. She has not shown aggression toward people. Hounds are hard-wired to hunt and perceive a world around them that we are unaware of. She is easily over-stimulated by a walk in the woods or the presence of a horse. She does well in the house and is not destructive but isolates herself at times and often prefers to sleep in a bathroom at night. She has the typical hound bay. We can not speak to her ability to hunt. The meaning of the word 'kaweah', pronounced 'ga-we-hah', in the ancient Yokuts language is 'crow' or 'raven cry'. Kaweah is also a river in the Sie

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.
