Sawyer needs a new home. Adopted in 2013, he is getting nervous in his home with two 1 year olds. They feel it is best that he go to a home without really young children. If interested in meeting Sawyer, please email an application to mpr@milofoundation.org. He is currently still in his adoptive home.

; ; *Return notes* Sawyer is a loving and energetic 3 year old cattle mix dog who likes to have off-leash playtime 1-2 times a week, on the trails or at a dog park. Other hobbies include playing ball, going swimming, and hiking. House manners are not in short supply- he does not chew anything inappropriate, knows plenty of useful commands, and is crate trained for sleep at night.

; There are no dietary issues, and he plays once every week or two at doggy daycare for dog social time, and so he boards easily for human vacation time. ; He gets along with all dogs, big or small, and has lived with another dog and would do well with that.

; He is a real Momma's boy, and would do best with someone who works from home, is retired, etc. Otherwise he would need regular dog daycare or extended time with a daily dog walker midday.

; He is very intelligent and understands many verbal commands such as 'sit', 'go lay down', 'leave it', 'go to your bed', 'where's your toy?', 'are you a good dog?' 'Ok go eat' (because he won't eat unless you give him a little pat!).

; Sawyer lived with an indoor cat for a short time in his early days, but would do best without cats, as he has taken to chasing neighborhood strays.

; Sawyer is up to date on all his vaccines and flea control, and has had no health issues.' He is looking for an owner who is experienced with dogs, does not have kids, does not have cats, and are serious about adopting.

; He absolutely cannot live with cats or children under 12. He would be great; in a home with other dogs.

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.
