Tilly is a cuddle bug looking for her human(s). This cute, petite chi-weenie would do best in a home with without small children or cats. While she is slow to warm up, once you have gained her trust ,she will follow you like a shadow. She loves to go for walks, waits patiently while you get a coffee, watches while you cook, offers help while you type on the computer, and loves so very much to snuggle. She is affectionate with the women and men in her life. She likes to snuggle on your lap and look up at you with her bright eyes. She walks well on a leash, is crate trained and house trained (but hates rain). Tillie has good recall (as she stays close to her human). Maybe you have room in your heart for this precious girl....

; ; She is currently living with three adult dogs (big and small) and one puppy in a foster home. While she could do without the puppy energy, and corrects the puppy to preserve her personal space. She gets along fine with all of the other dogs in her foster home; as well as new dogs at the park.

; ; Tillie had a litter of pups around Christmas of 2015 and was adopted after the pups were weaned; unfortunately she was returned from her home of 10 months because she was too nervous and unsettled with the play and interaction with small children.

; ; NO CATS IN THE HOME FOR MS. TILLIE!! She chases them!!!

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.
