Off to a foster home!!

; *Shelter Notes* JUNE is a female mystery mix puppy (looks Chihuahua mixed with Cattle Dog), Approx. 6 months old and about 13 lbs.. She is shy and scared in her new shelter surroundings but is sweet and likes to be petted with minimal effort. Gave female volunteer kisses. Came in as a stray.'

; *FOSTER NOTES* 11/7/16- June is a more dominant dog and much more confident with new people. She still skitters away when she doesn't want to be caught to go into the crate. We are working on getting into the crate on her own. My husband had some difficulty trying to get her into her crate at bedtime. She has 'mounted' Hazel, her bed, and our Maddie but stops with a correction of 'no' or a finger snap. She did show a slight food aggression with a 'highly valued' chewy but only growled and refused to release it to me. She never once tried to snap or bite. At this stage, no more chewys will be offered to her. She does nothing when I pick up her food bowl. I am working on her taking food 'nicely'' from my hand. She can be very determined to get to Hazel's food!

; June is a wiz kid. She picks up on commands very quickly. She is very food motivated and really wants to please. She loves attention and good scratches. She is very sweet and I have seen no signs of aggression even when Maddie gave her a gentle correction after mounting her. She learned sit within minutes and is now adept at sit and down. She is learning calmness before releasing(same as Hazel), and is doing very well and sits at every opportunity! I am really working on waiting at the door as she wants to shoot through at any opportunity. I can imagine her getting out of someone's home quite easily. She walks well on a leash and raises the hair on her back at other dogs but shows no aggression on a walk.

; She also does well in the crate at night and has had one accident in the house. She also 'pottied' on command this afternoon. She, also, is not too interested in toys. She will play

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.
