Gandalf was dumped in Porterville, and wandered onto the wrong piece of property (the owner was going to shoot him...) Luckily we heard about this and took him to the vet. After finding a microchip we did make contact, but the owner said she gave him to an elderly man 3 years ago. Poor Gandalf had been passed around until someone finally dumped him! The original owner didn't take him back, so now this handsome hunk needs a forever home!

; ; Gandalf was a skinny 87 lbs and needed to put on some weight and learn some manners. We have been working with him but he still needs some manners. Proper introductions with other dogs are necessary. He is so eager to play that he comes on playfully strong but once that initial intro is over he calms down and is pretty indifferent.

He is the biggest lovebug who just wants to play and be loved! He has finally put on some weight and is looking happy and healthy.; ; ADOPTER NOTES 1/24/17: Gandalf the Grey is gentle with adults and older children. Good with large dogs but plays very dominant/ rough. He walks well on leash, responds to commands, and is house broken. He loves tennis balls, treats, loves to run free at parks and sleeps all night in his bed. Sadly he did not do well with our small dog and young child.

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.
