Clarkson is a handsome mixed Shepherd with perhaps a tad of Rottie though he is not as big and solid as that would seemingly make him.... he is a nice, gentle, questioning soul wanting a safe haven. Clarkson tries to be a trusting soul, curious about his next steps.... he is off to a short-term foster for the first time (1-14-17) poor guy, so hopefully we'll have more insights into his behavior out in the world.

; Clarkson came in with his wife' and their pups, he is the last one left looking for his forever home, with a well fenced yard, love and TLC. He is not a super needy or solicitous dog - just quietly humble and patient, ready for a home....with you!??

; ; *FOSTER NOTES* 1/16/17- 'Clarkson is a great dog that just needs to learn not all adults are out to get him. He adores kids who are gentle and kind. He literally has not left the side of my 12 year old daughter since we brought him home 2 days ago. He's completely house trained. Well behaved, not barky or needy in any way. Super 'chill' as my 15 year old says. Just wants to be around people, but is quiet and sweet and kind. Keeps to himself but wants to know you are nearby. He is a bit weary of adults. Takes longer to trust them, often cowers when you go to pet him. That said he is COMPLETELY non aggressive - will just cower or scamper away. He warms up in a day or two if you give him his space and are not over-bearing in any way. He's great on a leash, doesn't pull at all. Wags his tail and is super friendly with the few other dogs we have met on our journey. Needs to learn the basics of sit and stay, etc, but is eager to please. Seems a bit anxious when you leave him alone, but it's not been very long. Would make a great companion for a family who will take their time getting to know him and can teach him what a kind and loving adult looks like.'

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.
