   Name: BRONSON
BRONSON

   Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier - Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr.  Birthday: 5/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30770
   Current Location: Foster Care
Bronson was part of a litter of pups who came to Milo last June. The litter was brought to the Milo Sanctuary after the recently homeless owner of their service dog mom was trying to live in her car....with eleven puppies! He was adopted in July. He was then surrendered because he was demanding and had some safety issues for the family, and though they tried, they did not know how to handle him. We were fortunate to get him into foster care with our Pittie-savvy foster Emma, who has been working with him for about 5 weeks. Here is what his foster mom now says about him.

Bronson is an extremely sweet and happy dog! He can be a little shy and unsure at times but is eager to learn. He picks up on boundaries and rules quickly when shown properly and consistently. He loves to play and when introduced slowly he loves having dog friends. But he loves his humans! He loves to follow and know where his human is and wants to hang out and snuggle.

Bronson is still a young dog and while he does know some basic things he is needing a forever home that will continue to help build his confidence, work on his foundation and help him grow into a wonderful companion. He has a history of talking back and sometimes being stubborn, but with the right owners he should grow out of that.

He is potty and crate trained. He loves the water and is getting good at his leash skills. He likes to talk and loves games with the ball and laying in the sunshine. Bronson is on the smaller side weighing about 55 pounds, and very cute, overall a very happy dog!

We feel that now after some good training Bronson is ready to find his forever home, with dog savvy adults.

   Breed: Chihuahua - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 mos.  Birthday: 2/2020 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30757
   Current Location: Foster Care
Meet Cali! She is a sweet girl who is very nervous and still coming out of her shell. She will need to be in a home with another dog or two who are very confident and can show her the steps. She needs owners who are very patient with her as she will run away if you try to pet her. If there are kids in the house, we ask that they are above 13 and can respect her space as she is really nervous and needs time to open up. She is a sweet girl who takes time to warm up to her people!

   Name: MAYA
MAYA

   Breed: Labrador Retriever - American Bulldog Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr. 4 mo.  Birthday: 1/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30712
   Current Location: Foster Care
Surrender/Foster notes: " Maya is a wonderful pup, but has high anxiety in our very social, noisy household. She has a difficult time meeting strangers and seems upset by noisy, wiggly, new children and we are very concerned about her potentially having a dangerous interaction. We have kept all new children out of our house for 7 months. She will need a household without kids. We will happily provide all of our training to the new adopters. We've worked very hard with her and shes come an amazingly long way from the time we brought her home. She didn't appear to have been socialized with people or animals in her previous life, and wasn't completely house trained or trained at all. She's really doing great with her training and we'd like her new family to have as much info as possible. She'd like a home where her people are home often, she has separation anxiety and cannot be left in a crate or yard. She would do best in a house with a yard, she requires a lot of exercise but can't run off leash. She requires adults only who have experience with dogs with behavioral issues and no kids at all.

"We are hoping to find a new, loving home for our sweet girl - she's a part of our family and we absolutely adore her, but we feel that she would be a happier, less anxious pup in a quieter home without children.

She has a hard time with meeting new people in the house, and is especially anxious/nervous around new children (she occasionally snarls at our youngest daughter -- 6 years old -- when she's bothered while sleeping, but generally tolerates our kids and enjoys playing with them). Because Maya reaches her threshold so easily around new children who tend to be noisy and wiggly, we haven't been able to have children other than ours at home since we adopted her.

We've been working with a behavior specialist who believes that she can progress, but our hectic household is not ideal for the classical conditioning "set ups" that our trainer has provided instruction on, and we just don't see a promising way forward at this point. It's not sustainable for our family to not have children over indefinitely, and Maya doesn't do well locked in a crate or another room -- she gets very upset. We've sought a second and third opinion from other trainers who both suggested that Maya was a wonderful girl, but perhaps would do better in a different household without children.

Thanks so much for reading this."

   Name: CALEB
CALEB
   Breed: Domestic Short Hair Mix
   Color:  Orange and white
   Gender: Male
   Age: 8 yrs. 9 mo.  Birthday: 8/2011 (est)
   Milo ID: 30711
   Current Location: Foster Care
Foster notes:

Caleb is a sweet and social cat who loves attention. He is easy going and is very docile. Caleb sleeps a lot but also craves attention. He really likes being pet, especially on his face and ears. He also loves belly rubs.

Caleb is a very vocal cat and will demand with meows that you give him attention. He follows me and others around the house begging for attention. All he really wants in life is for your to sit with him and pet him. Caleb has lived with others cats (although he’s currently an only cat here in foster) and gets along well with them. He benefits from having another cat around in that he is more calm and less attention seeking when he has another cat to interact with.

Caleb would make a great addition to someone living alone or a family with grade school children or older. He’s looking forward to meeting his forever human soon!

   Color:  Calico and white
   Gender: Female
   Age: 8 mos.  Birthday: 9/2019 (est)
   Milo ID: 30673
   Current Location: Foster Care
*Foster Notes* "Cali is black and white tuxedo male who has been neutered and Abby is about 9 months little white calico that has been spayed. They are a bonded couple so I am hoping they will find a home together.

Cali and Abby are from two different litters that bonded early on and became fast friends. They would explore, eat, play and sleep together. However during this transition they have become super shy....especially Abby. They are looking for their forever mom in an adult home. Someone who will show them love where they will feel safe. Both are liter box trained and waiting to go home with you. Make an appointment to come by and meet them."

They will need to go to a home that the owners are experienced with cats who are very timid of people. *Adoption fee $250*

   Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr.  Birthday: 4/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30640
   Current Location: Foster Care
***FOSTER NOTES***

"Winn is a sweet 3 y.o. Pit bull Mix who is looking for an emotional support human who can help build her confidence. She is timid when experiencing new places but does really well meeting new people. She's people-oriented, wants to be wherever you are, and loves to cuddle. If she could sleep with her head on your lap all the time, she would!

Winn is starting to show her playful side the more comfortable she becomes. She grunts, snorts, and snores adorably. At this time, she has not been tested with other dogs, kids, or cats. We are recommending a quiet home with a yard. Her new family would ideally be shy-dog savvy with no other dogs in the home."

   Breed: Domestic Short Hair
   Color:  Grey Tabby
   Gender: Male
   Age: 9 yrs. 7 mo.  Birthday: 10/2010 (est)
   Milo ID: 30582
   Current Location: Foster Care
Ashes and Scar are two owner surrendered kitties. Their owner has declining health so they are looking for a new home.

Foster notes: Scar is a handsome kitty who is somewhere between a heckin' chonker and hefty chonk as analyzed on the chonk chart . Although initially nervous, he will want to earn your love and affection. He's a sensitive boy who took a few days to warm up in my home. Once he felt safe and secure, his adorable personality began to shine. After a few days of some one-on-one time in the comfort of his carrier, he became brave enough to come out and ask for some snuggles. He still prefers the comfort of his bed but will love to nap near you and will meow for you to give him some attention. This laid back, quiet boy is looking for a patient, loving human who will give him time to come out of his shell. Scar will be a great companion for someone who likes to enjoy life’s quiet moments.

*Adoption fee for the pair: $200*

   Current Location: Foster Care
Ashes and Scar are two owner surrendered kitties. Their owner has declining health so they are looking for a new home.

Foster notes: If you are looking for a cat that is a total lovebug, then this fluffball wants to warm your lap! She's a world-class purrer and wants nothing more to get belly rubs and snuggles all day by her human. She's a chatty social butterfly and loves to be where the action is happening--she'll happily come to you when you call for her.

Ashes is the perfect host for all your future dinner parties post-quarantine. She briefly met a relative's small dog and didn't seem to mind him but may take some time warming up to other cats. She would be a great companion for someone who wants a snuggle partner for life.

*Adoption fee for the pair: $200*

   Milo ID: 30533
   Current Location: Foster Care
I was Marty’s previous foster before coming to Milo

"Marty is a super sweet boy that loves to play and gets along with other cats. He loves rubs and cuddles and just wants to be part of any family.

He had a rough start. He was found wandering the street with a severe injury to his left side. He had been used for target practice and was shot with an air rifle by some awful people. In spite of that, he’s extremely loving and trusting. During his time recuperating with me he was showered with all the love my fur babies get and he thrived in our household. I’m hoping he gets an amazing forever family. They’ll be very lucky to have him!"

   Breed: German Shepherd Dog - Pekingese Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 3/2018 (est)

   Milo ID: 30456
   Current Location: Foster Care
Meet Hazel!

A DNA test was done showing she is Pekingese and Shepherd!

She is a good dog waiting for her perfect home. She is known to jump high fences even with her person around so she needs a very secure high fence and will need to be monitored when outside. She will need a household that is predictable and with adults only who are dog savvy. She is weary of men and tends to bond towards women more. She can get comfortable towards men but it takes her a longer time to be able to trust them. Once she is bonded to one person she will protect that person. She is a dog that you have to be cautious when opening doors and she tends to want to run outside.

She cannot live with cats, and can be possessive of her toys with other dogs.

Some of the people who helped save her are chipping in to offer a whole training package with a great certified trainer just for you and Hazel!

   Breed: Domestic Long Hair
   Color:  Brown Tabby
   Gender: Female
   Age: 4 yrs.  Birthday: 5/2016 (est)
   Milo ID: 30327
   Current Location: Foster Care
Ozzy Girl is shining more and more every day! She loves to be brushed and is such a sweetheart once she opens up to you. Ozzy Girl never lived in the rescuer’s apartment but she was very friendly. “She always waited for me by the door, talked to me, and would roll over, wanting to be stroked on her tummy.” Ozzy Girl is looking for a patient home that will let her come out of her beautiful shell at her own speed.

Ozzy Girl is the mother of fellow resident Twinkle and they’re currently together in foster care. They came from living on the streets in North Richmond. Brought to Milo by a wonderful person who takes care of ferals and helps them to get adopted. The rescuer was able over time to encouraged them to eat in her backyard with the rest of the ferals. Ozzy Girl and Twinkle lived in her yard for just about a year and a half. It takes some time for them to get used to people, particularly strangers, but in foster care they are making great strides!

It would be great if they could be adopted together but no matter what, her adopter needs to go slow and allow Ozzie Girl time to open up and glow! She is ready for her forever home!

Foster Update:

"Twinkle is the sweetest little kitty. He’s a sucker for head and belly rubs and loves his good morning cuddles. He is chatty, but with the softest meow. He loves playing with a feather toy and is incredibly gentle with humans.”

Twinkle is a lovely little boy who is still learning to trust. He came to Milo with his mom, Mama Kitty Ozzy Girl from a wonderful person who takes care of ferals and helps them get adopted. They came from living on the streets in North Richmond. Their rescuer was able over time to encouraged them to eat in her backyard with the rest of the ferals. With her Twinkle was an inside/outside cat. “He is very athletic and loved to run all over, climb trees, and roam the block.” Twinkle and Mama Kitty Ozzy Girl lived in her yard for just about a year and a half. It takes them some time to get used to people, particularly strangers, but in foster they are making great strides!

It would be great if they could be adopted together, but no matter what his adopter needs to go slow and allow Twinkle time to open up and SHINE like his name!
