Nice, even keeled Red Heeler, friendly and easy going, though of course athletic at heart. She is getting used to things here at Milo! Making friends, taking it slow - ready to get out in the world and learn about a good life with people who love her and provide for her and keep her as a friend and family member!

; *FOSTER NOTES* 11/28/16- She is a fantastically sweet animal and is very gentle and submissive. A great walker who is very excited by other dogs. Is fine around other dogs but is not comfortable with very excited or dominant dogs (especially small breeds). One project that will have to happen in her future home will be dealing with separation anxiety. She opened our doggie door that was closed and chewed through a chain link fence to go stand in the front yard and wait for us to come home. A family with a big back yard and time to go throw a ball would probably be the best fit for her. She is well house broken and is a very quick learner.'

; *Return Notes* 11/19/16 'She would do great in a home with no cats and no other dogs or a dominant male.'

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.
