Sanctuary Update: Please read Sawyers full bio before applying. Sawyer is a lovely, cuddly and playful sweetheart, but he can initially be fearful and bark at people that he does not know and has had issues with strangers coming into his foster home. Since the below bio was written, Sawyer has had trouble with being territorial with a small dog he was sharing a foster home with. He may not have the same issue with sharing a home with a large dog but truly we can not say for sure. Sawyer can definitely have doggy friends, but he may be best suited as the only pet living inside the home. Ideally we would find a loving and low key home for Sawyer, with an adult family that will help him through his fear based behavioral issues. To be clear, Sawyer has not bitten anyone and we can easily introduce him to new people by simply having them pull out a leash and take him for a walk, but inside a home where he feels settled and safe he barks at them and is uncomfortable with them coming inside his home'. Please read all the positive things about Sawyer written before some of the negative behaviors surfaced, and send interest in fostering/adopting this very sweet, intelligent, active boy to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

; ; Original Bio:

; Sawyer is a loving and energetic 3 year old cattle mix dog who likes to have off-leash playtime 1-2 times a week, on the trails or at a dog park. Other hobbies include playing ball, going swimming, and hiking. House manners are not in short supply- he does not chew anything inappropriate, knows plenty of useful commands, and is crate trained for sleep at night.

; There are no dietary issues, and he boards easily for human vacation time. ; He gets along with all dogs, big or small, and has lived with another dog and would do well with that.

; He is a real Momma's boy, and would do best with someone who works from home, is retired, etc. Otherwise he would need regular dog daycare or extended time with a daily dog walker midday.

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.
