   Name: MAISIE
   Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois - Border Collie Mix
   Adopted: 3/2018
MISHKA"Dear Amanda and everyone at the Milo Foundation,

It's been such an absolute pleasure having Maisie in our home from foster to adoptee. Maisie is a truly special, sweet girl who is a big ball of fun and energy. She is ecstatic about car rides, going to the beach, playing in the snow, and going on just about any other adventure. She's always ready for a run, walk, or hike and will give you a run for your money when it comes to stamina!

Maisie is an extremely quick learner and always eager to please. Within just a week of at-home training, Maisie mastered 'Sit', 'Down', 'Shake', and 'Stay.' She recognizes her own name and immediately comes running when you tell her to 'Come.' She is house and crate trained and has been really good about boundaries (e.g. no jumping up on the bed). We have her enrolled in obedience classes now and has been working on her loose leash walking and remaining calm around a lot of distractions.

Socialization with other dogs is probably the area we've spent the most effort with Maisie. When we first brought Maisie home, she was very reactive around other dogs on leash. But her interactions with other dogs vastly improved from week to week. We think part of her initial problem was that she would get too excited around other dogs and overly eager to play/wrestle, but she didn't know how to properly greet others and came off as aggressive. Now Maisie gets along with most dogs and can be around dogs she doesn't know without being reactive. She can even walk into pet stores without any negative social interactions.

Maisie has both personal ID and Milo ID tags and her microchip has been registered. We're looking forward to a lifetime of memories with our little rambunctious little rascal :)"

   Name: BUCK
   Breed: Australian Cattle Dog - Shepherd Mix
   Adopted: 3/2018
BUCKHi everyone !

I wanted to let you guys now Buck is adjusting beautifully to his new home. He's really bonded with us and absolutely loves running around the property. He's exceeded our expectations and with a few weeks of leash training and he never strays out of sight, always ready to follow us while we build and clean the property. He's responded very well to training and constantly amazes us with how smart he is. Here's some photos , the one on the pine tree is my favorite, we cut down a big pine tree and will convert it into an obstacle course for buck. we love him ! Thank you.

   Name: MURRAY
   Adopted: 1/2011
HANUKKAH KITTEN ONE"Nik (formerly Izzy) and Murray are now seven years old. We adopted them from Milo at 4th in Berkeley when they were four months old. It's hard to believe they are middle-aged cats.

In honor of Nik and the day, I wrote a poem to him for my creative writing class. The attached visual aid shows Nik and me in one of our typical moments of cuddling together.

Also enclosed is a picture of Murray. It was taken immediately after I explained to him the entire Russian situation with Trump. He looks properly alarmed.

Our boys are very happy and healthy. They are very snuggly and incredibly bonded."

   Name: WHITNEY
   Adopted: 1/2018
THE DIVASHello,We adopted our kitty from you in early January. She was a belated Christmas present.When we got her, she was only 9 weeks and 1 day from being spayed.We already had a dog. A Brittany Spaniel. We were unsure how the dog would feel about our new Christmas present.The dog seemed agitated at first, really untrustworthy and in prey mode.After 2, slow, patient weeks of introducing them they are now best friends. We could not be happier.Thank you Milo Foundation for our very beautiful and loving kitty. We will forever be grateful for your service and all that you do!

   Name: STELLA
   Breed: Wirehaired Terrier
   Adopted: 4/2010
TULIP"Dear Milo,

It was 10 years ago when this little joy ran into our lives. She’s now almost 12 and I’m happy to report doing well. Her name was Tulip since then we’ve changed it to Stella Artois (yes the beer). When we first got her she was scared and I remember reading the part of her profile that said she hasn’t barked at all since arriving at Milo, my thoughts were "great a quiet dog she won’t be annoying or anything," and indeed for the first six months we had she was silent, then one day she found her voice. That’s when I realized how lucky I was that my family was able to bring her someplace she felt safe enough to speak. She had been through so much and I felt blessed to be able to be apart of her life, and grateful to her for letting me in. It took her a long time to share with us her true self but I am so very glad she did. She is an amazing dog, she loves to cuddle and give licks, she always runs to me when I walk in any room and she is like a shadow following me around the house as I do chores. She is my constant companion. She is so loving and amazing and I am so thankful to milo for introducing the two of us life long companions. Thanks for helping me to complete my family she is the best dog I could’ve asked for. She even makes sure that I wake up in the morning with kisses and jumping.

Sincerely Gail"

   Name: TROY
   Breed: Terrier Mix
   Adopted: 12/2015
RICHMOND FIVESOME"Dear Milo Foundation,

Happy New Year! It has been a wonderful two years so far with Troy, whom we brought home exactly two years ago today. With a lot of love and patience, Troy has opened up and gifted us with his sweetness and love. We feel so blessed that he is part of our family and wanted to thank you and the volunteers for caring for him while he was with you.

Troy is full of love and energy, and it turns out that he is very social! He loves to meet his friends at Point Isabel and explore the trails at Tilden. In the mornings and evenings, he is full of cuddles and kisses, especially with our 10 year old son. He brings us so much joy and laughter. Thank you for bringing us together. Wishing you a Wonderful New Year!"
