; Fripp is a great guy; he's smart and affectionate and cuddly. He learns commands quickly and is eager to please. He's been living in a household with very young children and has put up with a lot. He's about seven years old and neutered. He is house trained and knows basic commands. He's about 40 lbs and lean slim build. The rescue we adopted him from said his mother was a black lab, but he behaves more like a cattle dog or Australian Shepard. He is athletic, protective, and has energy and stamina like an Aussie or cattle dog, but endearing, sweet, and a bit goofy like a lab. We love his goofy side. He will really crack us up sometimes!

; ; Fripp has some behavioral issues when it comes to new people and other dogs. He sometimes has fear aggression when meeting new people or dogs. He will get to close then get scared and growl. We have worked with a trainer on this and he's much better than he used to be, especially when introduced using her method. He lives with an alpha female and is mostly respectful of the pecking order. He's very playful and loves when she will wrestle with him. He goes on pack walks with a dog walker twice a week and does fine in a dog park and van with other dogs. He will chase cats.

; ; He also has mild separation anxiety and moderate anxiety around unpredictable sounds like the refrigerator compressor, the gas wall heater, thunder, etc. which is helped by his medication. He LOVES to fetch just about anything but especially balls with the chuck-it. If he gets a good fetch session in everyday, he will be a very balanced dog who shows little of his anxiety.

; ; Fripp would be a great dog in a home with no other dogs or other dogs his size, no cats, and older children. He needs daily exercise and a lot of affection and physical touch. He'd do well with an experienced dog person who knows herding breeds.

; ; We are urgently looking for a permanent home or foster situation for Fripp. Please call or text Britt at

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.
