FOSTER NOTES 9/6/16 - Gemma is a sweet and mellow girl. She is quiet and loves to lay on your lap; or next to you. She knows how to sit and how to lay down. She is potty; trained. She gets along well with other dogs but once she's settled in her; bed she likes her space from them. She loves people and loves cuddling.;

; Foster notes 2/15/16: Gemma is 6 year old miniature poodle with a warm, attentive, and playful spirit. She is eager to snuggle and will gleefully hop up on your lap if invited to do so. When she's not snuggling, she's likely looking around for a rope, a kong, or stuffed toy to play with. She doesn't always know what to do with them once she finds them, but she seems to enjoy searching for them and/or chasing them down.; Gemma would do best in a home with no young children. While she's made lots of doggy friends, she would have an easier transition in a single dog home. She exhibits some guarding behaviors, particularly with her food. She's shown herself to be a bright little poodle, eager to please the humans she bonds with.While she'll need your loving patience to help her adjust to a stable home environment, she will reward you and your efforts with a lot of joy, especially if you?re in need of a sweet snuggle bug!'

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.
