To meet Circus, contact foster Evangelina Arreguin at earregui@live.com ;

; Foster notes: Circus has been in our home for four weeks now and is doing great! At first she was very shy and fearful, especially with my male partner. After a few days, Circus didn't growl at him, and after 1 week they were able to cuddle and play together with no issues. She takes a while to warm up with new people, but treats, baby voice' and slow pets really help. ;

; Circus gets along great with every dog and cat we have met. She LOVES the dog park! When we go to Pt Isabel she trots along right next to me and comes back when I call her name and give a treat. Her recall is getting better every day. She is so spunky and adorable. ;

; At home Circus shares food, toys and dog beds gracefully with my dog and cats. When I leave she goes into her crate, with plenty of treats inside of course. She will chew on a good bone or hoof quietly. She is a HUGE snuggler- she basically has no sense of personal space. She loves giving kisses and as I am typing this came to find me and is sleeping on my lap. ;

; Overall Circus would be a perfect companion dog, with or without other animals around- maybe best with one person in the home and a quiet environment- she could get used to more people around but needs lots of TLC.

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.
