Sequoia is a happy, loving and playful dog. She acts like a big (72lb), sweet and goofy puppy that just loves everyone and everything. She is very playful with male and female dogs alike and she needs the social interaction and exercise. With people she is openly sweet and cuddly and and so far does not seem to have a mean bone in her body!

; When Sequoia first came in, this otherwise absolutely beautiful girl had demodex, which is a non-contagious skin issue caused by malnutrition which was clearly not treated. She was found as a stray and brought to an overcrowded shelter that began treatment and reached out to us for help emptying some of their kennels. Her skin has cleared up and her beautiful fur has filled back out!

; She is not hyper or in any way disconnected, but is young, active, athletic and playful and would benefit from positive reinforcement basic obedience training. Upon arriving at the sanctuary Sequoia did happy laps of glee around the back yard, stopping to cuddle and play with both the staff and her new doggy friend.

; She can easily (and joyously) be handled all over and did not show any potential to guard the treats that we were sharing with another dog. She is a fantastic dog that would be a great fit for a loving, active and training minded family!

; *Foster Notes* 3/6/17 Great girl, needs work on house training, chewing, and will pull on leash. She is very intelligent, loving, and great with people. She would be great for someone who is strong and willing to train her. She was very gentle with our 13 yr old boys but did not get along with our dog.'

; We are asking a $450 adoption fee for this sweet treasure of a dog! We will be tending to her demodex and feeding her well.... she is a delight and a beauty! Half the fee can be a tax-deductible donation, or up to $250 which qualifies for a My Mutt photo shoot and Ex-Large poster through our friends at Petfood Express!!

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.
