Traveler is fostered and is much loved, but finding him a loving home who can care for him, have him be one of two or three and folks with more time to give him the attention and adoration he soaks up and include him in daily activities (he loves rides in the car and his moseying strolls, the beach, trails...) but he loves to sniff everything along the way - he is terrific on or off leash - responsive - but not the fastest to respond and return - not till he's done sniffing, and he does stroll off and away - not far, if you are not paying attention. He's a Traveler!

; Travy' needs to drop some weight, and he'd prefer not to live with a lot of flights of stairs - but he manages - and he knows how to use a dog door and is completely house trained. Fine with cats, kids, other dogs too!

; Traveler is truly a delightful companion!! Excellent dog.

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.
