Sparky is very temporarily at the Sanctuary to have some time to run around because he was becoming stressed in a kennel at the adoption center. Please email interest in Sparky to the sanctuary in Willits and we will let you know when you can either meet him here, or what day he will be heading back down to MPR! Bio:

Sparky was an owner surrender to the Wasco Shelter. He is very sweet and friendly, needs basic obedience, and would love a family to call his own! Sparky is active, affectionate, cuddly and adorable - we'll know more soon to expand his bio - but better yet - come meet this handsome fellow at Milo Point Richmond soon! He is geared up and ready for an active, loving family!

$450 adoption fee.

   Name: HERSHEL

   Breed: Miniature Schnauzer - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 3 mo.  Birthday: 12/2015 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 24603
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
*Return Notes* 1/9/17 "My husband and I do think Hershel would do great in a home with a single, strong, experienced dog owner. He went to MetroDog where he could play with other dogs, and when he is not there he gets 1-2 hours of good exercise every day (long walks, fetch, and dog parks where only large dogs go due to his aggression with small dogs). He eats a healthy diet of grain-free kibble and home-made stews. He has been through training.

Note that when Hershel is calm he is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog, but he can switch in an instant to a state of fearfulness. He should not be in any home where there are children or small animals (or frequent visitors).

We also did a Wisdom Panel DNA test and Hershel's results stated that he is American Staffordshire Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, and Mixed herding (most likely matches were German Shepard and Border Collie)."

   Name: HARVEY

   Breed: Australian Shepherd - Bernese Mountain Dog Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 5 yrs. 6 mo.  Birthday: 9/2011 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 24592
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Handsome big fellow, strong yet sweet-natured. He came into the Monterey shelter with hair loss on his rear from flea infestation. A nice dog that has had some neglect. He is a sweet guy and loves attention, has some separation anxiety and will bark in the car. Harvey would be best in a home with no children. He needs work on learning to share his food with people and with house training.

Won-ton is a timid lil boy. In need of a super LOVING home!

   Name: OLLIE

   Breed: Jack Russell Terrier - Beagle Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 6 yrs. 5 mo.  Birthday: 10/2010 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 24323
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
When Ollie knows and trusts you, he is a wiggling, cuddly and ball playing little munchkin, but it takes a bit of time to get past his "stranger danger" response to get to know that side of him. Because he does have the potential to bite if he feels cornered or forced to interact with someone, it would be best for Ollie to find a low key and rural home where he would not need to visit coffee shops/dog parks etc and could just be your happy and sweet little buddy. We will add more about this cutie soon! Please send interest in ollie to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

   Name: THOR

   Breed: Akbash
   Gender: Male
   Age: 4 yrs. 11 mo.  Birthday: 4/2012 (est)
   Weight: Extra-Large (over 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 24286
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Update: Thor is again looking for a new home. Most recently he was adopted out to live on a mini-donkey ranch where he was able to be with his person 24/7 and enjoyed a huge fenced yard but despite the fact that his foster mom loves him dearly it is clear that it is not going to be the best match for him. He is a very big boy that will need someone that will be able to work with the puppy like behavior he is showing in the home. He has started chewing up items in the home and is attempting to play and mouth and his mom does not feel that she knows how to correct the behavior although we feel that with refresher training he could get past both issues as he is very sweet and eager to please. Although he is a wonderful boy who has never done so before, recently a visitor attempted to take his bone away from him and when Thor growled the gentleman then yelled at him and Thor unfortunately bit his hand. Truly Thor is a very soulful and sweet giant, and we are hoping to find him a new rural home with someone that will recognize what a fantastic dog that he is and is willing and able to be his confidant yet loving leader. Former Bio written before 2nd and most recent adoption:

Thor is looking for a new rural home ! We do want to stress that Thor is looking for a home as an only dog, and would need to live on a property where having to interact with them, even in passing would not be necessary. This beautiful boy was initially adopted to a loving family, but it became clear that he really would do best in a rural setting, which is to be expected for the breed. He bonded quickly and deeply to his family, which included children, cats and even one small dog. He slept in their room at night and loved being with them.

Much like Great Pyrenees, Akbash were breed to protect flocks from predators and are known for their gentle temperaments with all that they were raised to be included in their "family flock", but also their bravery when protecting them from a perceived threat. While in his first family Thor never showed any aggression to any PEOPLE outside of his family unit, all dogs encountered on walks around "his" neighborhood, or living in adjoining yards were viewed as wolves outside the door. Because they lived in the city, the family had difficulty even taking him for walks because of this. They were both gone for long hrs, and although he had access to a yard he would get restless and bark from stress. He does not do this here at the sanctuary and likely would not in a home where he had more time with his people and was not stressed by his surroundings.

Thor is a wonderful dog, who is looking for a loving home that will provide him with the rural property that he longs for, without feeling the constant need to keep away unknown dogs. This behavior did not start until he had established who his family was and what animals were included in the circle. In a city environment the barriers/fences/leashes, coupled with his natural inner drive to patrol his property and keep his family safe did not make for a good combination. Thor is a loyal, loving and fantastic dog who is looking for his place in the world. We are looking for a home for him in the country, where he can sleep inside and be part of the family, but also have room to roam and let down his guard. We do want to stress that Thor has shown strong aggression towards other dogs, beyond the very small dog he lived with in the past. At this point we feel that Thor would need a home where he is an only dog, who does not have neighboring dogs near by.

Update: Thor showed no prey drive towards the livestock here at the sanctuary and after being returned from the first family then spent some time in a foster home where he did not show a prey drive towards their chickens or sheep. He was not allowed free access to them for safety reasons, but he showed no interest whatsoever in the chickens inside the coop and play bowed at the sheep. He did well with the two cats in the home as well. Thor does need secure fencing if left alone in the yard. He will sleep peacefully through the night in a crate(or loose) and has good house manners. Please send applications for Thor to sanctuary@milofoundation.org
