   Name: LOLA
More Photos
   Breed: Whippet - Hound Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 8 yrs. 11 mo.  Birthday: 10/2008 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 25768
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Lola has arrived at our Sanctuary from her home in Santa Cruz, she is an elegant dog with the speed of sight hound, and she is agile. Good with cats, she lived with 2 cats and a Chihuahua, but became too protective of her person, the mother of the family. A dog trainer (George Menna) in Santa Cruz took her on pack walks, and she did great, but she needs a strong pack leader so she doesn't feel the need to protect.

Lola can't tolerate loud noises like fireworks, gun fire etc. it frightens her and she tries to escape, which she is good at! We are looking for a home for her with a dog savvy person that is around, and that perhaps has some other animals as well. She is sweet, house trained, smart and affectionate.

   Breed: Australian Shepherd - Border Collie Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 3 yrs. 3 mo.  Birthday: 6/2014 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 25436
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Randal is a delightful, solicitous and happy dog. A handsome boy, could use a tad of grooming he has a thick coat, but he is beautiful and sweet as can be. Randal is still learning how to meet other dogs, as he can be afraid at first. We are looking for a more predictable / rural setting for this boy.

*RETURN NOTES* Very sweet - needs a ton of attention, likes to cuddle. Reactive to other dogs on leash but learned sit and stay

$400 adoption fee.

   Name: JACK JACK

   Breed: Beagle - Jack Russell Terrier Mix
   Age: 5 yrs. 3 mo.  Birthday: 6/2012 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 25372
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Jack Jack is a handsome, sturdy little Beagle mix who came to us after being rescued from a hoarding situation. Although he was initially unsure of being handled, he made much progress in a foster home, and we are pleased to report that he has shown himself to be a cuddly and affectionate boy who loves to curl up in your lap. Jack jack gets along well with most little dogs, but big dogs do make him upset, and we were told that there was a large dog in the hoarding situation that used to pick on him. We feel that he would do best in a home with a small, mellow female dog. Jack does not seem as though he was abused physically, but likely had not been touched by anyone beyond the woman with the disorder. When we met him he immediately had a calm presence, but then would look very surprised when we reached out to touch him. He would happily be sitting next to us, but physical affection from us seemed like something that had not occurred to him, and he would startle and move away. We knew from photos that his foster mom had been able to pet him, and within days he was LOVING to cuddle with us and be held.

Jack does have some left over issues from his time living in the tiny trailer with more than 30 other dogs, namely that he will need to be houstrained and does not understand that he is supposed to be on the floor, rather than on counters/table etc. This happens many times with dogs from hoarding situations, as the floor gets covered in waste, and the dogs learn that they need to stay above it to stay clean. We are work

Jack is a lovely, gentle and well centered boy with an old soil. He is more than ready to find a loving and capable, predictable and adult home of his very own, who will show him how wonderful life can and should be! please email questionnaires to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

   Name: DUSTY

   Breed: Border Collie
   Gender: Male
   Age: 2 yrs. 11 mo.  Birthday: 10/2014 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 25342
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Sanctuary Notes: Dusty is a sweet and bonding boy who is extremely intelligent and needs and craves direction. He is a dog that would love to learn as many words and commands as possible and would very likely soak up agility training like a little sponge!

Dusty wants a job, he wants to learn. When just left without activity and something to do you can see that he feels like his mind is starving and he will make up his own obstacle course and track around his yard, going in the same circle and stopping at the same objects. Dusty is the kind of dog that would have been perfect for what he was breed to do, so as a pet he will need someone who wants to work with and train their dog words and commands and activities, as he would love nothing more that to have someone to work and play with, and then cozy up with at the end of the day!! Dusty loves attention and to interact, but without an outlet for his intelligence and drive he can disconnect and develop OCD behaviors, namely the circling behavior mentioned previously. When he gets into this anxious state it can be difficult to get his focus, but when you do he is on point and ready to learn. Dogs with Dusty's drive, intelligence and need for direction do not generally do well in a shelter environment (even at a sanctuary with a large yard) without enough to occupy their minds and we would love to get him into a home ASAP!! Dusty would be a dream dog for a training minded individual with an active lifestyle. Please contact us at sanctuary@milofoundation.org if you feel that you could be a great team!

   Name: XERXES

   Breed: Queensland Heeler Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 10 mo.  Birthday: 10/2015 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 25172
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Xerxes is a very shy guy. He needs some TLC! Was at Family dog rescue for almost a year. *STAFF NOTES*

Xerxes is a tad shy but it's understandable because this is all very new to him. He needs a gentle hand and slow coaxing to help him open up. He walks well on leash but does get startled by sounds and movements while on walks. He allows pets and enjoyed hanging out in the sun with me. Time and patience will help this boy tremendously.

If interested in this sweet guy please email an application to sanctuary@milofoundation.org

   Name: MIRA

   Breed: Terrier - Chihuahua Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs.  Birthday: 9/2015 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 24986
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Mira is an exceptionally sweet, fun and lovable little lady. Since coming to the sanctuary she has won the hearts of every person she has met, which is no surprise considering she is absolutely adorable! Mira would be happy going for hikes, finding adventures or just cuddling on the couch all day. She loves people, but needs some time to warm up to strangers and does have the propensity to snap if spooked or forced into interactions she isn't ready for. Because of this we don't think a home with children would be a good fit for her. With a little time and the proper introductions she is more than willing to roll over for belly rubs, play and give/ get lots of kisses. Mira has lived with both cats and dogs and got along with all of them very well. She is a truly special little dog and will make the right adopters very happy. If you feel you and Mira could be a good match please send inquiries and adoption questionnaires to sanctuary@milofoundation.org
