A sweet, young Chi mix girl is coming back to Milo due to difficulties with the children in the home - and chasing the cats (for fun!)

Miss Kitty has the potential to be a great dog in the right situation. I think that she needs a more experienced dog-owner who can, right from the start, set more clear boundaries with Miss Kitty. I think that not living with smaller children is a must and not living with cats is probably wise. (Ultimately, I think that she might be okay with cats because I think she's trying to play with them, which is again why someone else who is better equipped than we were and are to manage and mold her behavior might find that she's fine with cats.) Miss Kitty has stayed with friends when we were on vacation and they have a bigger and older dog. Miss Kitty was great with the other dog and in social situations (walks) when she meets other dogs, she's great, especially around bigger dogs. She's fine when strangers come to the door and never acts aggressive toward people in those situations. She's totally house-broken and crate trained which is also a good start.

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.
