Atlas is scrappy, but like his name, he is genuinely the most loyal and affectionate of them all. While he may be the smallest in size, don't under estimate the strength of his character. He is truly a treasure.

; ; Atlas is missing the ball at top of femur - - it is advised that any surgery wait till he is around 4 months most likely unless he becomes terribly uncomfortable - which he is not at the moment.

; ; *FOSTER NOTES* 2/15/17- We signed up for 2 weeks with Atlas and now we are in our 3rd week. This little pup is very special. He has a lovely disposition.; Incredibly friendly and curious toward people and pets of all sizes. He loves the playful energy of kids and wants to participate.As a middle age couple and we find ourselves playing chase around the house with him. He is infections and charming.He gets you up to take breaks from office work so no need to set a reminder!He is house broken as long as he is able to go outside at least every 4 hours. Time is gradually increasing.

; He has a great appetite. Treat oriented that helps his potty training progress.; He sleeps in our living room.

; He has been walking on leash.Barking: he has not been very vocal. He only barked when got excited to see other dogs as potential playmates or got scared of something unknown.We are working on NO (us and the pup as well) He needs to learn not to be mouthy when he gets deep into play mode. He would benefit from puppy classes. He is smart. He learns fast as long as his humans are consistent.

; He is excited about: Food, play, walks, cuddles, (yes he loves sleeping on your lap) The world is a wonderful adventure for him.He is active. We see no sign of discomfort from his hip issues so far.

; We think he would be a perfect fit for a couple or family with kids perhaps 7 or older.

; He deserves a loving environment after a rough start in life.; He bonds with his humans. He will be a very loving companion and WILL steal your heart.'

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.
