   Name: DAKOTA now KOTA
   Breed: Border Terrier - Jack Russell Terrier Mix
   Adopted: 12/2015
DAKOTA now KOTADear Milo Foundation,

Thank you for selecting us to be Kota's adoptive family. He is very sweet and so smart. In the four months that he has been with us, he has passed beginning dog training and is almost half way through intermediate training. He has mastered "sit" and "down" and is on his way with "rollover" and "stay". He loves his routine of cuddling during mom's morning cup of coffee and walking the kids up to the bus stop on school days. He loves his crate, his bed and the leather chair (see pic below). He has made lots of dog friends in his new neighborhood, especially a neighbor pup who was adopted from Milo the same weekend Kota was.

We are so glad that Kota joined our family. He has brought us great joy with a little added craziness. Thank you for all you do to save animals and match them with loving homes.

The Geraghty Family (Brennan, Mike, Hannah & Sean)

   Name: BISCUIT now LULU
   Breed: Wirehaired Terrier - Terrier Mix
   Adopted: 11/2015
MEERA PUPHi! We adopted one of Meera's pups: Biscuit (now Lulu). How exciting to discover who her father is! We also fostered Lulu's sister, Dottie, for a while and miss her and would love to know how she is. We would LOVE to meet up with other family members! We are in Berkeley and like to go to Pt. Isabel and Tilden but are happy to go wherever. I'm sending a recent picture of Lulu.

Thanks for reaching out! Jenny

   Name: PAISLEY now LULU
   Breed: Wirehaired Terrier - Terrier Mix
   Adopted: 10/2015
MEERA PUP Hi!I got your email Ann (and just got Jennifer's as I was writing this). I had been meaning to email recent pix of Lulu (was Paisley) who looked exactly like Ashe! Sounds like Lulu is a popular name! What if the white pup Dottie was renamed Lulu too?

She is doing great! I adore her. She still sleeps with the stuffed orange dog Amanda gave to her when I picked her up at adoption!

She walks with me everywhere and we go to the Presidio every morning where she plays with all the dog walker dogs and most are much bigger than she is.

She is perfect - even with her terror-ier bratty stubborn side which is her way of being playful and, which thankfully, is easily managed with her command "touch, sit". She also comes running back to me with a special whistle I do for her.

I would love to see pix of her mom Meera, dad Ashe, and 2 sisters! Email some. I have had so many people ask me where I got her and everyone loves her story, well really Meera/Ashe's being rescued by the Milo Angels and 3 girl pups being born that night.

Thank you for my great pup, my forever friend. We are both very happy girls!

   Name: ENVY
   Breed: Shepherd - Border Collie Mix
   Adopted: 4/2016
ENVY Isaac and I are writing to say all is well with Ellie (previously Envy). She is adjusting nicely to her new home. Our routine is to go on a 30 minute loop in the morning around the neighborhood. We bring lots of treats to reassure her everything is good. We also do another loop in the evening. We both can tell that she is gaining more confidence each day. She already made friends with two beagles, and she gets many compliments on her beautiful black shiny coat. When we get back home from a walk, she enjoys crazily running around in the backyard. Overall she is a smart dog and is already picking up on her new schedule. She has great manners. She is good with meeting other dogs on walks. She stays close to us on walks as well, no chasing birds or dogs. She doesn't pull too much on leash, and she will heal when commanded. She is food motivated, but she never begs for human food. She knows not to get up on furniture or beds and is content in her dog bed. She does have a funny habit of stealing a sock and putting it in her dog bed... She is a very smart dog. Since last Sunday, she already knows new commands. She knew "sit" since Milo, but she has also learned "lie down", "shake", and "wait". Her fear of doors is still there, but she's learning to sit and stay before humans lead through a door, more progress to come in time. She visited Dr. Dogra at Animal Medical Center San Rafael for an initial visit and to schedule her spay and rabies. She is scheduled for May 6th per the vets recommendation. We can request the date moved forward, but I would agree to wait until she is fully recovered from loose stools and her last pregnancy. We also requested blood tests to have a benchmark on her health. We know not to let her go to dog parks or let her off leash until both rabies and spay happen. Also to notify other dog owners before letting her meet other dogs. Attached is a photo of Ellie and me on a walk--Isaac is taking the photo. We both feel very fortunate to have Ellie in our lives. :) Thanks, Jackie and Isaac and Ellie!

   Name: ROSIE
   Breed: Pit Bull Terrier - McNab Mix
   Adopted: 4/2012

Remember Rosey (pictures attached)? She's a female pit-mix I adopted from you about 4-5 years ago. She was 9 at the time. I'm happy to say she's still going strong!

I remarried, and moved out of the city to the Ranchos in Madera. The house sits on 2 acres, and she has other dogs and 2 horses to have fun with, and all the open letter and to run on.

She does have some arthritis, but she's doing well with her med school and glucosamine supplements. Even our vet is very impressed at how well she's moving and looks for her age!

I'm sorry I've been overdue in this update. Rest assured, she's loving life here!

   Name: RANDY now Robin
   Breed: Dachshund - Beagle Mix
   Adopted: 1/2016
SOCCER FAMILY PUP 3"Meet Robin! We adopted this bundle of joy (formerly known as “Randy”) in February 2016. Our curious pup loves cuddling, sunbathing, meeting new people and dogs everywhere he goes, and watching his favorite team, the Golden State Warriors, play. He is slowly but surely becoming house trained, and also knows how to play dead, sit, high five, shake, and roll over! He just turned five months old on the 11th and we are amazed at how much we learn about one another as each month passes. Thank you Milo Foundation!"


Happy Endings!
