Name: NEWTON
Breed: Terrier - Beagle Mix
Adopted: 1/2014
FIGARO FIVE Five MHi! We wanted to send a recent pic of Newton (we kept his name!). We adopted him in Jan. 2014 (one of the 5 Figgies (Figaro puppies)). He is doing amazingly well, and we absolutely love him. People always comment on what a great and handsome dog he is. Our foster family gave him an incredible start- he was already crate trained and potty trained super quickly and was very loving and great with people and other dogs. He has added so much love to our family. We are already thinking about adding another so he has a dog friend to play with. Thanks for bringing him to us!! We will come by again soon.

PS- We would love to see any pictures (if you have seen any) or get in touch w/ anyone who adopted a sibling of his. Curious to know what they look like :)

Name: MINDY
Breed: Border Collie - Australian Cattle Dog Mix
Adopted: 5/2014
MINDYAs we approach the 2 mont

Deciding we were ready to rescue another dog was not an easy decision for us. We've got our almost 13 year old Venus (adopted from Milo in 2003), as well as two children (5.5 and 7). We went back and forth on breeds and rescue organizations, even going as far as to have a home visit from the Golden Retriever rescue - but it was obvious to us that it was a bad match for our senior girl. Finally, we decided to wait until the right dog found us, and resigned ourselves that it could be months before that happened. But then, there was Mindy.

After seeing Mindy's picture and reading her description on Milo's site, I just knew. I don't know how, but I did. She was our girl. So sure was I, that my husband drove 500 miles north from Orange County to Point Richmond on a Friday to pick her up, and drove her home the next day. 1000 miles in 24 hours for a pup we'd never met!! But, boy was I right....she is wonderful!!!

It's been a fun and sometimes crazy 2 months, including a very scary incident when she chewed through her crate and jumped out my sons 2nd story window, only moments before we got home! Thank goodness my neighbor saw her and was running to meet me in driveway, we are SOOOO lucky that we got her back (without a scratch on her!), it was a team effort...and now my son calls her "The Great Mindini!". After that, we got her an extra large wire crate for when we are away, and close all doors and windows when we leave the house...she is TRULY an amazing girl!

Our kids love her so much, and our Venus has tolerated her from the moment she arrived (even though Mindy took over her bed within 5 minutes!), and has even perked up in the wake of all this new, young energy. They are fast friends, with only a couple times in 2 months that Venus has had to "scold her". Mindy is full of love and is overcoming her separation anxiety. We see signs every day that she finally understands this is her forever home. She's even started barking when people come to the house as if she's protecting her family...we love it, because it means she knows we are hers (and she always settles right away). She is on her 3rd training session, and is doing great. So smart and such a fast learner! I could go on and on and on about how special she is, but...I won't. I will just say that, once again, I am amazed that such an incredible animal could have been without a family. She is truly a blessing and I look forward to watching her grow with our children through the years and look forward to the many adventures that await!

Thank you Milo for trusting us to give Mindy the loving home that she needed, and for saving our perfect pup...she "found us", like I knew she would...

Name: HARRY
Adopted: 1/2014
HARRY POTTER KITTEN TWOThey are both doing wonderfully well. You'd think they grew up here! They play with their little mice toys, eat up a storm, chase each other room to room, and collapse for naps together, only to wake up and start over. They both snuggle and purr like the dickens, and sleep on our bed at night.

We believe they are quite content, and we couldn't be happier. They are sporting kitten collars, which help us tell them apart ;-), and I have registered them with Avid ID.

Thanks for checking, and thank you for all that you do!

Name: DILLON
Breed: Cocker - English Mix
Adopted: 11/2011
SPANKYDear Milo folk, Cali and Dillon make a wonderful combination! Dillon loves playing with his "big sister", even though she (quite properly) disciplines him from time to time. And Cali...the transformation in her since Dillon came is absolutely astonishing. She has really blossomed. The moment Cali met Dillon, in our van in front of Milo Marin, her tail came up, and she hasn't tucked it in since! And she's stopped barking or growling at me when I change posture or change clothes, and when I come in the house her bark is clearly a "greeting" bark now, not a fear/defensive sort of bark. All because of getting a puppy--! (Maybe she figures if the ogre wants to eat a dog, it'll start with the little tender one.) Thanks very much for saving these two and steering us to them! It is wonderful to be part of a dog pack again. (The cats aren't so sure of that--they're maybe not quite as mellow as the Milo test cats! But we're confident they'll come around...one of them, at least, is dog-wise and has had dog-friends before.)

 


Happy Endings!
