Bart/Beaux was adopted and returned to Milo due to a heart condition that will sadly shorten his life to four years or so. Beaux promises to fill all the time that he has with his gratitude and love if someone will take him in and show him the same love and kindness in return. We know that it is asking a lot as you would be sure to fall for this handsome boy, and your time together would be cut short, but we are very much hoping to help Beaux find that special someone to make his time here as full and happy as possible. He is a loving and special boy who is looking for a place to call home.

; FOSTER REPORT 11/30/16: Bart has been doing pretty well this last week. I haven't seen him coughing like when I fostered him previously so think the medicine is doing its job! He takes medicine like they are treats! He still very much wants to play with my dogs but my dogs don't want to play with him cuz they are old and grouchy. He likes to play fetch with people too but would love it if my dogs played with him. He knows sit, shake, lie down, go to bed; we're working on stay, lets go (getting him to wait even though the door is open), and sitting at cross walks.

; ; I'm trying to work on his food guarding behavior. I hand-feed him his meals; he is fine with that but he still chases his tail after eating. He is fine when I make all the dogs sit and get treats; it seems like an issue when he drops his treat and he thinks the other dogs are going to try to get it. We're also working on his leash walking. He walks well for the most part but will jump and try to chase after cars or will bite and tug at the leash. The chasing after cars worries me; I think the biting and tugging the leash is play behavior.

; ; From his adopters: Beaux is a very energetic pup! He loves to play with his toys in the house and throws them up in the air and shakes them back and forth. His favorite toy is his penguin :) He enjoys having his belly rubbed and loves scratches under his

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.
