Gus is our big, happy Labrador boy. He is an active, energetic young male who will thrive in a predictable, adult home with dog-savvy handlers and no kids. ; He would best be suited for an adult couple that wants a large dog and has time to work with him and give him lots of exercise. Gus would also do well in a home with a more mature, mellow canine companion.

; ; Gus can be initially reactive with some dogs -- especially on a leash -- but plays well with others in a controlled environment (home, park. etc.). He loves to run and be silly like a big puppy, but understands of No!' when the situation calls for it.

; ; *Foster Notes* (12/9/16): 'Gus is a great big puppy. Loves to be doing whatever you are doing. Loves to hike and explore. House-trained and a great companion.'

; ; *Return Notes* (10/17/16): 'Gus is a sweet, goofy guy and mostly good at home with other home pets. I really think he is trainable. He is very strong, and very powerful.'

; ; *Foster Notes* (1/14/17): 'He's not a total yard ape in the house. Will sit down and chill in the house and is happy to do whatever you're doing'

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.
