Updated Bio coming soon

; ; Former Bio: JayJay is an adventuresome and intelligent Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua/rat terrier mix. This beautiful silver/cocoa-colored comedian loves to cuddle with people and play with his ball when he's not soliciting affection and treats.

; ; JayJay is a bit high-strung and will be anxious during the first few days in his new home. To manage his stress, he takes anti-anxiety medication and will also need at least an hour of exercise a day. He can be reactive on leash, but plays well with other dogs at the park and loves to play fetch and chase games. Once he gets his energy out, he calms down significantly. He would do best in a quiet household where someone can be home with him a lot and keep his stress in check. However, once he is comfortable in his new surroundings he can be left alone for long periods (with other small dogs, if necessary) without any problems.

; ; Jayjay is a wonderful companion pup who is house-trained and has basic obedience skills. He can be a bit nervous, but 95% of the time he's a playful, charismatic little charmer who draws attention wherever he goes. Come meet this cute little comedian today!

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.
