My story

Pancho's ideal home would be an active adult home. He would love a yard to play in and to go on off-leash hikes. Pancho is great in the home - he is potty-trained, crate-trained and fine being left alone. He settles down nicely after a hike or even a leash walk around the neighborhood. He knows all the basic commands. He is very active and needs a home with dog experience. We think he would thrive as an only dog with a calm and confident person/people.

Pancho loves to snuggle and give his people and dog friends kisses. He can be good with dogs of all sizes when properly introduced. He has been on pack walks with 4 to 8 dogs daily and learning his place and appropriate behavior. He is not a dog park kind of dog but he can meet dogs on trails and do fine. He has lived with both a male and female dog as well as a kitty. He really likes cats but on leash on a walk he will try to chase.

Pancho does have a prey drive and loves to chase lizards, dig for gophers, etc. This is when his recall goes out the window. He is very smart and has picked up commands quickly; luckily, he is food motivated!

This 8 year-old boy is an active, full-throttle, agile, alert companion. Outgoing, playful, attentive, willing and able to learn and to be an affectionate eager and loving companion for active, athletic outdoorsy folks with the time and ability to include their dog in a lot of daily activities. Pancho is all about fun and games! He is not timid and temperament is moderate to alpha. Dog savvy-adults or a family with older children (teenagers) is best for him.

More about this rescue

The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found.

Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation Sanctuary is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. The Milo Sanctuary animals typically (but not exclusively) are harder to adopt animals and those needing more rural type homes, such as dogs with social or behavioural challenges, feral cats, horses and other farm animals. The Milo Point Richmond Adoption Center is where the majority of our new rescue intake takes place, typically friendly, adoptable cats and dogs, puppies and kittens rescued from shelters where they were facing euthanasia. The Sanctuary is where highly active or reactive dogs can go and have plenty of space, other canine companions (if they are dog friendly) and live in a stress free environment until such time as the right adoption match can be found.

The Milo Sanctuary is what enables Milo to be a No-Kill organization. Milo brings dogs back and forth from the Adoption Center (MPR) to the Sanctuary to give dogs a break from the stresses of the kennel environment and back to MPR later to try again at being adopted. Potential adopters also do come up to the Sanctuary to adopt, by appointment.
