Karma was born in a car by a Pit Bull mom, dad was a Border Collie. There were 8 in the litter and we were able to place them all. Sadly Karma was returned after a year because the home was not the right match for her. She is shy around strangers and yet she LOVES her people. She has great recall and loves to play fetch or frisbee. She wants to play with other dogs but needs some work. She can not be around small children. She is very smart and would love a job.

; *Return Notes* Karma's a little over a year old. A beautiful girl, full of energy. She is pit mixed with something that likes to point at squirrels and jump high in; the air. She is a budding frisbee dog with her flying skills, but still working on her catching skills.

; She is fully house trained. She is smart as they come. Ask her to get a specific toy by name and she will not return from her hunt until she finds the right one. She is not destructive (except for memory foam - do not give her a memory foam bed). Crate trained and also sleeps in one - although she would rather be in bed with you.

; She can be a picky eater and it takes her awhile to get through a meal. Dry +; canned and sometimes a drizzle of yogurt is needed to get her interested in finishing her food. She would rather be with you or out playing than eating. She is not much on dry dog cookies, but will do about anything for chicken strips or liver snacks.

; She enjoys bathes, but not having her nails trimmed. Karma needs a experienced dog owner. She would not be good in a home with young children or small animals. She loves cats, but can play too rough with 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.
