Featured Critter: SWEET POTATO

Breed: Terrier - Chihuahua Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 6 mos. (est), Milo ID: 29494
Current Location: MPR

SWEET POTATO Little shy cutie pie - Sweet Potato Pie! She is shy of strangers iniitially and of being picked up, but then she warms up. She likes other dogs, and is learning to relax and trust but has a bit of a ways to go. Quiet, calm, but athletic and playful with others, learning to walk on leash... Sweet Potato and Parsnip are friends and kennel buddies, Parsnip being a good mentor - but little SP will come around, she needs a patient home with people that have the time for her or can take her to work - the more people time the better! AS she could be a flight risk - we recommend a home without young children, also she may be more relaxed, not that she isn't good around kids.

Featured Critter: TIGGER

Breed: Domestic Short Hair   -  Gender: Male
Age: 9 yrs. 2 mo., Milo ID: 28812
Current Location: MPR

TIGGER Tigger has warmed up to the changes and he is a very sweet though particular cat. He is quite the couch potato.He really enjoys having the top of his head slowly scratched and likes sniffing people's noses. He is sensitive to having his lower back petted and would prefer head rubs. When sitting in a calm person's lap, he also enjoys having the area under his chin scratched.

Here some notes from one of our awesome cat volunteers who is a big fan of Tigger: "*Tigger is a big orange cat with a heart of gold and a big bright presence. He is 9 yrs. of age and loves to jump up to hang out on top of the highest cat tree to look down, often surprising visitors when they look up. He seems quite tickled about it. He has a unique charm with his gentle ways seem to help the other cats feel calm. If older cats tug on your heart strings Tigger may be just the one for you. Once he is in a loving home he can hopefully lose a bit of weight and learn to dance the rumba."

Tigger's previous home told us that he is quiet and calm but has his playful moments as well. Tigger loves people and can be a lap cat but he doesn’t like to be picked up. We were told he tolerates dogs. Tigger gets along well with other cats in our group room here at Milo, though he can be selective of his feline friends at first. He can get overstimulated easily so would do best in a home with no children and a cat savvy adopter!

Featured Critter: SOPHIE

Breed: Springer Spaniel - Coonhound Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 4 yrs. 10 mo. (est), Milo ID: 28218
Current Location: Sanctuary

SOPHI Sophi is very intelligent and eager to learn and please. Sophie is fabulous with other dogs in a play group setting, she LOVES to run around - and is fine with a pack. But if she knows there are cats nearby or other critters to hunt - her recall goes to the wind! She is a hunting dog through and through, a country dog. She is a "frustrated greeter" and gets reactive when she is on a leash and sees another dog but is very much dog friendly. She will benefit from management and conditioning for the separation anxiety, mental stimulation, and intensive training for her leash behavior - or a home where she does not lead her life on leash - she actually lives and plays with an ever changing group of dogs and is always in the middle of the fun, but not the squabbles. .

**FOSTER NOTES: Sophie is an extremely lovable and loving dog. She's fantastic with our 3 children and walks happily on leash. She's still learning how to live in a house but is making steady progress.

She will happily make herself comfortable cuddled up with you on a couch or a bed. While she does chase our cats a bit, she can be redirected. She's eager to please and wants to be close to her humans all the time.

She isn't especially interested in treats and is motivated primarily by affection. She does have separation anxiety and has engaged in some destructive behaviors when left on her own, even for only an hour or so, * but if she is in a yard with buddy dogs she is fine!!

This is a lovely dog for rural living with a family to love her she will give oodles of Love back! email sanctuary@milofoundation.org to learn more or to make arrangements to meet this smiley, beguiling, ~43 pound girl!

Featured Critter: BEAR

Breed: Great Dane - Border Collie Mix  -  Gender: Male
Age: 6 yrs. 3 mo. (est), Milo ID: 23612
Current Location: Foster

FONZY BEAR Bear is a beautiful, very sweet and loving dog with lots of energy. He has great house manners, is potty trained, can be left alone for several hours. He doesn’t need to be crated. Since he wasn’t properly socialized in his previous home he initially is cautious with strangers but as soon as he realizes that visitors are no threat he loves having people around. He is kid friendly but due to his size and strength children should be 12 or older. He loves to play fetch and knows all the basic commands and then some.

City life scares him. Therefore he needs a more rural home with lots of space to roam. Bear is very excitable and we are still working on loose leash walking. He does get along well with the other dog in his foster home, but does not do well with encountering other dogs. So no dog parks for him. He needs slow introduction with other dogs and due to his excitability can be overwhelming. When Bear is relaxed he is a fast learner, but his excitement often gets in the way. Bear is looking for a family that can help him to relax and trust, that can give him the exercise he needs and has the patience to teach him in a calm and loving way that the world is a safe place. No cats or other small animals for Bear.

Featured Critter: KITTY

Breed: Chihuahua - Smooth Fox Terrier Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 5 yrs. 1 mo. (est), Milo ID: 23998
Current Location: Sanctuary

MISS KITTY Sanctuary Update: Miss Kitty is spending time with us at the sanctuary in Willits while she waits for a family. She truly is lovely in so many ways, but she does have difficulty with nipping out of fear when touched in a way that makes her feel scared or restrained, and it can be difficult at times to determine what level of handling will make her feel that way. This would explain the difficulties she had with children that are mentioned in her original bio below. Miss Kitty would do best in a quiet and adult home with someone who would be patient with her while helping her to let down her guard and realize that you are not going to hurt her. There is a BB pellet under her skin, so she has clearly had a hard time in her past, and may not have been handled consistently and kindly during socialization as a pup, but we have definitely seen her confidence grow with us and we are very proud of her! She LOVES toys and playing fetch and is never outwardly aggressive towards anyone she meets, but she would not want for them to try to pick her up etc right away. Even for those that know and love her, scooping her up still has to be done in a certain way in order to not scare her. In an adult, loving and predictable home we feel that she will continue to blossom and that her confidence with handling will grow, but it will take patience and understanding that she may get snappy if spooked. She is a very cute little girl and we know the right home for her is out there!

Original Bio: Our sweet female Chi mix is coming back to Milo due to difficulties with the children in her previous home. Because of her experience there, we've learned that Miss Kitty is not best suited to a home with kids. However, she gets along well with cats and dogs as long as she is corrected when she plays too rough (needs reminders about boundaries).

Outside of her quirks, Miss Kitty is a great little dog. She walks well on a leash, is crate-trained and housebroken, and loves to play fetch. In addition, she meets/greets other dogs well and is not aggressive toward strangers. Miss Kitty is a little firecracker who will make a great pet in the right home.
