Kilo-Pie! He is an active, protective, eager, attentive fellow - needing ongoing socialization work, training, a human leader of his pack - really good activity as he is a big (Growing) athletic fellow!

; Only dog savvy folks will be considered for this willful, passionate fellow!

; *FOSTER UPDATE* 1/6/17-Energetic, very affectionate and goofy boy that requires a handler with strong leadership and experience with working breed dogs. He is crate trained (but preferred to sleep on my bed with the cat and me), knows basic commands such as sit, down and stay, learns quickly and is eager to please. Very food motivated. And loves loves loves to snuggle!

; Kilo loves getting attention and loves most people, including children, but does jump up on people when excited and does so with enough force to knock adults off balance. He?s ok on leash, sometimes dog reactive but easily redirected with treats or other attention-getting techniques. Off leash he loves to run and play with other dogs. Despite his rear end weakness, he can and will make sudden leaps on to higher furniture like tables.

; Though generally very friendly, he was protective of me when walking at night and when people came to my home. He is not easily spooked. Seems quite environmentally stable.

; He was good with my dog-savvy cat, but did chase her around (sometimes at her bidding).; He is a very vocal dog! Especially when excited or upset.

; Kilo is a great dog and would benefit from ongoing training. '

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.
