My name is Traveler and I am trying to find a place to call home.; I am hoping to find a person who is a bit older and appreciates the border collie personality without the border collie craziness. You see, I am a bit older (maybe 7 or 8) and act a bit like a golden retriever in some ways. I LOVE PEOPLE. I do fine with other dogs and cats, but I think I would really prefer to be someone?s one and only if possible. I just have SO much love to give and sharing that is hard at times. I live with other dogs and do fine, never react on a leash when seeing other dogs, but boy, I want to be the apple of someone?s eye.

; ; I am very easy going. I am proud to say that I don?t bark, chew, dig, jump up on people, or any of those things that make having a large dog challenging. I am like a stuffed dog that snuggles and wants regular walks. I have been remiss with my weight management and need to loose about 15 pounds. It is a slow process, but regular walks will continue to help. I think I would look just dashing at about 60 pounds.

; ; I never get on furniture, I enjoy a crate and prefer sleeping in there often. Although I am a bit of a ?Velcro? dog, I can also go relax if you need to get some work done. My foster family has helped with a lot of visits to vets to understand exactly how I am doing. The good news is that although I have some orthopedic issues, the surgeon said old fashioned exercise, Cosequin, and loosing that weight will be a good solution. I also need a dental, but my foster family is considering helping or covering this expense for the right home.

; Please pass the word on to help me find the right home. I am really amazing and can stay with my foster family, but would prefer to have someone?s undivided attention.

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.
