PLEASE READ ALL NOTES before inquiring about Niki. She is right for the right home, which is not most homes. Experience with large dogs, and very dog-savvy adopters only. Transferred to Milo sanctuary 4/29/16.

; ; Niki can act like a giant puppy, but she can also snap when handled in a way that she is not comfortable with. She is a big girl that does not like to give up control so touching her belly/feet etc is something that is not recommended. She can get along well with some male dogs, but should not be with female dogs and can be picky about some males as well. For this reason and her reluctance to be touched in certain ways she would not be recommended for dog parks etc. and should be in an adult only home with folks that know how to establish themselves as both the pack leader and a trusted friend. She does need strong leadership, while being fair, kind and showing her lots of love.

; Former Bio:; Niki is an owner surrender from a home that didn't have the time for her and kept her outside on a chain. She will need some training for basic obedience but is very smart; she knows sit, and when she is feeling in the mood she will give her paw, too.

; This is a strong girl, and she needs a yard and a home with patience, that is willing to commit to training.

; *Return Notes* 9/17/15 Wonderful dog, smart and cuddly. Loves outdoors and swimming. Would be great in a one dog house hold. She did not get along with our alpha female.'

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.
