Awesome, smooth coat happy pants guy! Lovely Border Collie guy, not hyper, affectionate, wants to please, a real love!

; ; *FOSTER NOTES* 11/23/16- We live in Mountain View so it was about an hour ride home for us from Point Richmond. Louie slept in his crate the entire ride home. We were worried he would be shy, scared or nervous. He didn?t make a peep. He didn?t resist getting into the crate either. And as he slept he also did not paw or pick at the gate of the crate to get out. He seemed totally comfortable.

; Once home Louie spent the first 15? in our apt just checking out everything. But for the entire week after he did not chew shoes, shred socks or generally just chew on any number of items within his reach. He did take some bites out of some of our furniture that were close to his bed but he stopped when we corrected him.

; He?s attentive but still also stubborn. This means that when we started training him to learn ?sit? he got it pretty quickly on the first session, but later in the week often he would sort of know what he wanted but not work for it. But that?s in line with the puppy/breed behavior we expected.; Louie is basically already house trained. In the morning he would sleep a lot and it was only when he got up after having breakfast that we learned he wanted to go out. He never whined or whimpered to go out. He was quiet and sat near the door while occasionally nudging me with his nose to remind me of his needs. We have a small patio that has a small patch of trees and leaves on one side of the patio. When we let Louie out to explore it he explored the entire patio and went straight to the dirt/leaf patch for his bathroom needs. We have a wood table and two wood benches on our patio and Louie never considered lifting his leg on any of them. In fact the fence that cordons off our patio is also wood and he never considered lifting his leg on that either.; With regard to food scraps or crumbs, sure he ate crumbs of of our kitchen floor.

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.
