Little whispy haired, floppy eared, tiny girl. A lap dog, a companion, a friend in need of her human!

; *FOSTER UPDATE* 1/8/17- Duchess has been with us over two weeks at this point and has been great. She is the absolute sweetest little girl. Duchess gets along fine with our two resident dogs, a jack Russel mix and the other is a chihuahua mix. Duchess goes potty outside, eats her kibble very well, and is most happy on the couch watching TV snuggled up to a human. However she's also quite happy to go for a walk and is fine on a leash with a harness. When in the house she tends to follow you around but as she has gotten more comfortable in our home I have noticed that she will stay on the couch or in the pet bed if you leave the room. Duchess would make an outstanding companion for anyone but especially an older person who is looking for a calm low-key dog. We don't have young children so I can't say whether she would be good with kids but my guess is that she would be ok, but I have to stress that she is not a hyper dog. We love this little girl but would really like to see her adopted as three permanent dog family members is a little difficult logistically for us. '

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.
