Trixie and little Willow are sisters or Mother (Trixie) and daughter... more investigation will tell. They are sweet, quiet and shut-down/shy, so we are giving them some time to get more comfortable. These sweet girls actually have the appearance of being part Japanese terrier, they certainly are sensitive.

; Trixie and Willow would love a foster home to relax and build their confidence.

; ** FOSTER NOTES** 9/8/16- Willow is EXCITED and HAPPY! She loves people - men, women, kids. She is also certain that every person she meets loves her back. You cannot be in a bad mood with this dog around. She is like a canine Prozac. She has a lot of energy. We have walked her for an hour and a half and it did not diminish her batteries. We finally found her 'off switch' when she sat on our laps in the evening to watch TV. She loves to be loved and just wants to be with people. She comes when she is called and seems to be house trained. She is happy in her crate with her sister Trixie. She likes all dogs she has met, but gets nervous around boisterous big dogs. One of the best things about Willow and Trixie is when we walk them people always stop to say how cute they are. And they really are cute! These two girls will make someone lovely and loving pets.'

; $300 adoption fee, $500 for the pair !

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.
