Pocus is a very sweet and playful young girl. She is special needs as she does have Epilepsy and is on medication for it.

; *Foster Notes* 12/28/16 High energy, jumper, and needs crate training.'

; *Volunteer Notes* 12/4/16- 'Pocus is a lovable sweetie. She loves kisses and will jump up when you first greet her to kiss your face, but calms down once the initial excitement wears off. I took her on a hike and she was very well behaved - dog friendly, didn't pull too much, and didn't resist when pulled away when she stopped to smell. She still acts like a puppy but will sit for treats and wants to please. She does get a bit anxious in the car but other than the occasional whine, behaves very well.'; ; *Foster Report* 11/19/16 'Pocus likes chew toys. Likes to be with people a lot of the time. Enjoys sitting on a cushion or cozy place. Needs to go to the bathroom about an hour after she eats. Must take her medicine twice a day. She is great around people, very friendly- gives lots of kisses. Pocus is a small chocolate lab mix. She enjoys going on walks, going to the dog park and playing with her toys. She is usually good on the leash and naps often during the day. She is very friendly when she meets new dogs, children and adults. She does well lounging in her crate. At times, she can get over excited when she sees other dogs. Pocus would be a great companion and addition to your family. She enjoys spending time with her owners.'

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.
