Name: WHISKEY now DAVID BOWIE
Breed: Border Collie - Australian Shepherd Mix
Adopted: 7/2014
WHISKEY now DAVID BOWIEUPDATE January 2015: Just wanted to check in and send some photos of DB. We've had him six months today! We are so happy to have him in our family. DB got a hiking pack for Christmas, which he seems to like. These are a few pictures from Christmas and hiking in Oregon.

Thanks so much, and hope you are well!

Caity, Chris, and DB

Dear Milo Foundation. We feel so fortunate to have David Bowie (formerly Whiskey) in our lives! Our goal was to find an active dog who would enjoy spending time outdoors as much as we do, and we have already had many adventures together running, hiking, mountain biking, and camping. He especially seems to love the beach! As a highly intelligent and energetic dog, he is sometimes a challenge, but he has settled in well, and our friends comment on how calm and polite he is now, compared to when he first came home. He was well socialized by his amazing foster family, and already knew a lot of basic obedience commands when we got him, which gave us a good foundation to work from. It's always a surprise how quickly he picks things up! We think he'd make a great Agility dog someday.

In short, we absolutely love him, and he is a wonderful addition to our family! We are thankful to his foster family and the Milo Foundation for all of the energy and care they put into him to make him a great dog.

Love, Chris, Cait, and David Bowie

Name: CHIP
Breed: Australian Shepherd - Labrador Retriever Mix
Adopted: 11/2014
CHIPHi Milo people.

Just wanted to let you know that Chip is doing great and is the perfect dog for us :) He has become much more confident and comfortable and has gained another 5 lbs since adoption. He is much less anxious when we leave him home alone now and is not at all destructive when we're gone. He has been doing great going off-leash at parks and on hikes and listens really well. He is still super sweet, friendly and goofy and loves to play fetch with his ball. We have kept in touch with his foster parents too and he loves getting to visit them at the park. Here are some pics of him - handsome as ever! As you can see in the last picture, we've discovered he is a bit of a digger! Chippo is very loved and has definitely changed our lives for the better.

Name: BOWIE
Breed: Cocker Spaniel - Labrador Retriever Mix
Adopted: 6/2014
MAYA PUPPY YELLOWHi! Happy new year to you all. I wanted to give you an update on Maya & Bowie. Both are happy and healthy! Bowie is officially bigger than his mama now and still growing. We have seen a behaviorist that told us he feels he needs to protect Maya, but with some separation he is returning to the confident, relaxed puppy we saw when he was with his litter. Maya is as sweet as ever and gradually increasing her tolerance for other animals (although we still have the cat in a gated space!). All in all, we are well.

Name: VITA
Breed: Spaniel - Corgi Mix
Adopted: 6/2014
VITAWe adopted Vita in May 2014 and she has fit perfectly into our family. She is the greatest dog. She loves to hike and play, is friends with our kids and cat, and is unwaveringly loyal and loving.

She is still a bit timid and nervous in crowded/noisy situations (at the vet, groomers, etc) but I think if you were to ask her, she would say she is loving life, and we love life with her.

Thank you for giving her a chance so we could adopt her.

PS: we wanted to change her name to something else, but since we fostered first (needing to keep her as "Vita" during that time) our attempts at changing her name just wouldn't stick. However she is known as "Vita-Lou" on her dog license and we often call her by that name (with the 'i' long, as in "vitamin").

Name: SAN FRANCISCO now BRANDI
Adopted: 9/2014
SEVEN CITIES KITTEN OneHappy New Year to everyone at Milo!

We want to update you on our two beautiful "teenage" cats (now 9 months old), Mia and Brandi (formerly known as San Francisco). We are so happy to have them and so grateful that you gave them the early care and attention that made them into such active and affectionate companions.

As anyone who follows the sport knows, Mia (Hamm) and Brandi (Chastain) made history as fantastic athletes and mutually supportive teammates who launched U.S. women's soccer. Since one of our adoptees was already named Mia, we decided to name the other Brandi, figuring that would give us a winning team, and it has. They are endlessly energetic (climbing their beloved structure, wrestling, and zooming around the house) and are touchingly devoted to one another (napping together, bathing each other, and each always making sure the other is nearby). They are also always ready to jump into an available lap to snuggle.

There is never a dull moment around here. "Get down from there!" and "Where did you get that?!" have become familiar exclamations, but then we always remember they are just being cats--healthy, happy, rambunctious cats, and we love them. Thank you so much!

Hope you and your rescued charges all have a wonderful 2015.

Elaine and Jay
