Terri was found as a stray, then picked up by a family which tried to find her a home, with no luck. She is a very sweet and friendly girl. Terri is active, social, loves running and playing with other dogs. She is eager to learn and to be loved by people with active lifestyles and time for daily outings to parks or trails, the beach... jogging.... She is a fun and happy dog - her tail always wagging!

; Come take this sweet girl on a hike at Miller Knox park near Milo Point Richmond - or a romp at the Milo Dog Park!!

; ; *FOSTER UPDATE* 1/6/17- We've been fostering Terri for a little over 3 weeks and she is a LOVE! She wants to be close to her people and if we're in different rooms she'll wander between the two checking to make sure everyone is okay! She is fully house trained and sleeps at night in her crate. We also put her in her crate when we leave during the day, she's never been left more than 5 hours. One of us works from home, so she's not alone much. We don't think she'd do well being left alone for long stretches every day, given that she is such a little shadow to her people.

; Terri is able to keep up with us on runs, and has gone as long as 7 miles! If she gets at least 30 minutes of intense exercise a day she's very calm in the house. Really, she mostly sleeps during the day. We're not sure how much of the world she was exposed to previously, as she can get over-stimulated outside in new situations...or anytime she sees a squirrel (she does seem to have a strong prey drive). She's friendly to other dogs we see when out and about. She picks up very quickly on training. She knows sit and down and we're; working on off and look. If we could keep her we totally would. She's a total diamond in the rough and with a little more polishing we know she would just shine!'

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.
