Name: AUGGIE now TUBA
Breed: Puli Mix
Adopted: 9/2014
AUGGIE now TUBAHello amazing people at Milo Foundation! We wanted to give you a one-month update with news of Auggie, the amazing Puli-Poodle. First off, to say that he and Kingsley have become buddies is quite the understatement! The two are a tumbling, pouncing, playing mass that run from room-to-room, then outside around the yard and back inside again. They share food, sleep together and generally love being around each other. Auggie likes to lie or sit on Kingsley when a stranger is in the house — very similarly to what he did with Curry at Milo. He looks to Kingsley for clues about dogs and people — it’s really very sweet.

Auggie’s new forever-name is Tuba, and he seems to respond to it and like it much better. :) He is in obedience training and is getting the hang of sit, come, wait and leave it. He is a smart little guy. He is slowly putting on weight and eating regularly now. I have learned to “pull Puli chords” and have found it to be quite meditative. It’s definitely a different way to groom a dog! Tuba loves our boys and wakes our youngest up with massive amounts of face licks every morning. Both dogs actually cover his face in kisses and my son just loves it. Honestly, it’s the only way he wakes up on a school day with a smile on his face. :) One of our favorite things is to take Tuba and Kingsley to a fenced-in dog park and watch them run. I have yet to see a dog that can catch Tuba, no matter what the size. He is FAST and can turn on a dime. Must be the Puli in him. It’s amazing to watch. We wanted to send a little video so you can see the two of them in action for yourselves!

Thank you again for bringing another amazing, sweet, loving animal to us. The whole family is so grateful and happy. One last thing…we checked daily to see if Curry was adopted and saw that he was a few weeks back! We were so happy that he found a home. I mentioned this when we adopted Tuba (Auggie), but we would love to get the two dogs together again. So, if the new family is up for it, please send them our name and contact info.

Thank you!!! Anne, Mike, Stefan, Parker, Kingsley and Tuba

 
Name: ELLIOT now PO
Breed: Pug Mix
Adopted: 5/2014
ELLIOT now POHi Olivia!!!

I just had to write to tell you how much we love Elliot!!!! He's such an incredible dog and so much of it is owed to your great training! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Elliot is now Po the Kung Fu Puppy. (According to our boys) He has a rich history. Born Po, he was raised in a noodle shop, never seeking fortune nor fame. He climbed to the mountain top to earn the Dragon Warrior name. If you're not familiar, this is the story of the Kung Fu Panda.

He fits into our lives as if, well, there was some divine intervention! A couple of people have mentioned that it's as if he was sent to us. We love him so much and he acts as though he's always been here with us! He's such a good boy.

Thank you so much for fostering him and giving him such a wonderful start in life!

Name: SHIRO
Adopted: 10/2011
HIGHWAY ONE KITTEN ONEHi Ann,

Here is our Happy Ending” story, along with some photos:

Just a few months ago (in August 2014), my partner and I adopted a dog from Milo, now named Takoda (formerly: Osso). We did a DNA test on him (he came in with his mother (I think Lucy?) and litter of puppies, so this is for their info. too), and he is mostly a Newfoundland and German Shepherd mix, which explains his love of water, puddles, and mud. We couldn’t have asked for a better dog. He is the sweetest, mellowest, and friendliest dog ever. The name Takoda means: "friend to everyone,” which truly describes his personality. He loves greeting people and especially loves other dogs. He has been such a great addition to our family of pets and we cannot imagine our lives without him. We consistently receive compliments on his personality because of his calm, well-behaved and sweet demeanor - people can’t believe he is a puppy. We have done lots of training with him (and have worked with a trainer), and he is a fast and eager learner. Many of the issues he had when we got him (like him being afraid of his crate and getting into the car, etc.), have been resolved with patience and consistency. He also gets along well with our cats (although one of them is still not too pleased with him). We adopted our black cat (formerly “Highway One Kitten”), Shiro, from Milo in October of 2011 and he and Takoda have become fast friends. I thought I’d include him in the happy ending story since I didn’t write one back then. He’s been an incredible pet, as well. Thanks for all of the animals you rescue and foster - I believe both Takoda’s and Shiro’s wonderful personalities have a lot to do with how they were treated and fostered at Milo.

Name: SPLASH! now ROXI
Breed: Chow Chow Mix
Adopted: 7/2009
SPLASH! now ROXIHello,

We just made a donation in gratitude of the dog we adopted from the Milo Foundation in July 2009. Her name at Milo was Splash! But she now goes by Roxi. She's a wonderful, loving dog and we are so grateful to have such a wonderful girl in our lives. We adopted a male dog from the Oakland Animal Shelter, who we named Knox, around the time we adopted her and they LOVE each other so much. In March 2011 we had a baby girl and Roxi (also called Pup Pup) was a champ and would stay up all hours with me while I cared for the newborn. I'll never forget one night, around 3am, I looked at Pup and she looked so tired and bedraggled, her hair was a mess. She's such a trooper. Then in March 2014 we adopted a cat from Give Me Shelter and she has been very good with our newest family member. She's such a great spirit. Thank you for rescuing her and caring for her until we could find and adopt her. We adopted her about a week after we'd had to put our beloved Alex down (he was very old and in more pain than the painkillers could handle). We were so heartbroken to say goodbye to him but Roxi took some of that pain away.

Wishing all the people and animals at The Milo Foundation a joyous holiday season and a safe and happy 2015.

Thank you.

Best, Olive
