Fiddle is a wonderful dog with tons of potential :) Fiddle is a wonderful dog in so many ways, though is a bit difficult to manage in an urban setting would do better in a different low key, predictable home. She is incredibly sweet and affectionate once she opens up which doesn't take too long. Prior to Milo, Fiddle lived a family with kids ages 11 and 13. Fiddle was also great with their cat and their 6-month-old puppy, also from Milo. She was initially adopted when she was about 4 months old from Milo. She then attended Bravo Pup training classes I and II shortly after she was adopted. She also had an excellent trainer work with her one-on-one to improve her recall so to improve her off leash manners. She recently worked again with the trainer to address her leash reactivity and strong prey drive (particularly squirrels) but it remained a real challenge. Fiddle is an active dog who loves to run and explore. After she has been exercised, she is pretty relaxed and hangs out inside the house and our backyard for the rest of the day. The challenge with Fiddle is that she needs to be exercised but can be a challenge off and on leash due to her being reactive to some strangers, dogs and gets to become more anxious in busy settings. Which is why she was returned to Milo. Ideally Fiddle would be in a more calm setting with lots of space or perhaps a yard to run and get mental and physical stimulation.

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.
