Trixie and little Willow are sisters or Mother (Trixie) and daughter... more investigation will tell. They are sweet, and where quiet and shy, but now these two are super social, silly, affectionate and sweet as can be! They love kids!! These sweet girls actually have the appearance of being part Japanese terrier, they certainly are sensitive and lovable, bonded little creatures.

; Trixie and Willow would love a home together for sure! They will relax and build up their confidence. They are sweet as heck, cute, silly.....

; *FOSTER NOTES* 9/8/16- Trixie is a very sweet, sensitive, polite little dog. She loves people, even young kids. She likes other dogs so long as they are calm (she is nervous around boisterous big dogs). She walks beautifully on leash, even my 4 year old son could walk her easily. She rides nicely in the car. She is happy in her crate with her sister Willow. You have to be patient when you take her out to relieve herself; she really takes her sweet time, but with that in mind she does seem house trained. She fancies herself a guard dog and will bark at cats she sees through the screen door or at raccoons she hears outside. She even growled at a dog on TV (which was so cute and funny we had a good laugh). She didn't like plain kibble and kept sniffing around looking for people food my kids dropped, so I mixed a little cooked chicken into the kibble and she gobbled it up. She has had a lot of new experiences in her foster home (hard wood floors were scary at first) and she sometimes shuts down but she perks up with just a little encouragement. One of the best things about Trixie and Willow is when we walk them people always stop to say how cute they are. Their ears especially are adorable (and so soft!). These two girls will make someone lovely and loving pets.'

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.
