   Name: PAXTON
PAXTON
More Photos
   Breed: German Shepherd Dog
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 5 mo.  Birthday: 11/2017 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Referral placement - adoption assisted by Milo.

   Milo ID: 28922
   Current Location: Foster Care
This is an adoption assist: “Paxton is a beautiful 70 lbs neutered white German shepherd mix. I was asked by a couple to foster Pax for a few weeks until they moved to a house with a big yard next to a great dog park in Connecticut with a promise to return for him on February 9th. They never showed.

Pax is a great 1.5 year old pup. He is trained to handle his 1 & 2 business outside. He does not chew on household items. He is great on and off of the leash. He plays fetch, obeys commands such as sit, lay down, no, wait, and is likely the most intelligent pup to ever exist, as the person I acquired Pax from [temporarily] said they never taught Pax any commands.

He likes humans, but he is a bit snappy when other pups approach him that he does not know, but has never showed any real aggression. He is cat friendly as well. He's a big ball of love and energy and once he’s used to another dog he will play nonstop for hours and hours.

I've had Pax since December in my little apartment in downtown Berkeley and he really needs some space to run and play. I'd love to see Pax adopted out to a home with another dog and a yard so he has a place to run and play. Oh, he can climb the average 4 ft chain link fence so I'd suggest a home with a tall wood fence or a ranch/farm of some sort.”

   Name: PANTHER
EMILY PUPS
   Breed: Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 3 mos.  Birthday: 1/2019 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28919
   Current Location: Foster Care
Panther is an instant favorite with anyone who likes a classic, sweet puppy face. He comes up and licks anyone, or just sits in a corner trying to figure out what it's all about. His athletic body and smooth black fur make him a great choice for cuddling and serious play, and he is quite smart. A true sweetheart, he will be an irresistible addition to any family household, and should grow up to be a fun companion in any situation.

   Breed: Wirehaired Terrier - Corgi Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 6 yrs. 10 mo.  Birthday: 6/2012 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Referral placement - adoption assisted by Milo.

   Milo ID: 28909

This is an Adoption Assist

**Surrender notes: “Beast was found walking the streets of Los Banos, and somehow came to the Milo Foundation. We adopted him in February 2013. He came to Milo at the same time as another more classically attractive dog so they called them Beauty and the Beast, and we kept the name. He's about 45 lbs., a terrier mix, born ~ June 2012.

He isn't well-trained (jumps up on people and can be mouthy). He is very smart and would take well to training. He loves to run and play and go on walks, then at some point regardless of daily activity he gets tired and loves to cuddle on the couch.

He has a lot of personality and we loved having him until our daughter was born, then it became too much for us since he needs so much attention and has so much energy.

He's current on all vaccinations. No bite history, doesn’t usually play ball. We used to take him to the dog park and he enjoyed it. The only times he's been at all aggressive is if he's on leash in too close quarters with other dogs, he's never bitten or attacked, he just postures and barks.

We'd love to see Beast go to a home where he gets lots of affection, attention, and walks/hikes. He deserves a family who really appreciates his company.”

   Breed: Australian Shepherd - Springer Spaniel Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 6 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 3/2013 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28885
   Current Location: Foster Care
An absolutely awesome, middle-aged lady, more relaxed than a typical Aussie we are fairly certain she is part Springer Spaniel and got the more mellow gene of both breeds...intelligent, affectionate, responsive and loving - really a charmer! She has some skin irritation from lack of grooming and care but we're getting her on good quality food and supplements to fix her right up. Walks well on leash.

Dolly is a gentle, easy going soul, eager to please, needs good quality food and care - and deserves lots of love!

   Breed: Beauceron Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 10 mos.  Birthday: 5/2018 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28878
   Current Location: Foster Care
This Big Beautiful teenager, Andrea, is eager and ready to play with the big boys and girls! She seems to want to learn to play fetch, she is very sweet (jumps up to give kisses - so we are working on correcting that!) she is playful, tail wagging and fun loving! Andrea will train well and she wants to please her people! Ready for training and learning how to be a well trained companion and star of someone's life!

A Beauceron is fearless, Intelligent, Protective, Friendly, and Calm. A French herding breed known for centuries in western Europe, the Beauceron is noted as one of the breeds used to create the Doberman Pinscher. Although quite different in appearance, the Beauceron and the long-haired sheep dog, the Briard, stem from similar ancestral stock, sharing the trait of double dewclaws on the hind legs. Both were used to herd sheep and cattle.

She would thrive with an active family, and a yard, perhaps another dog would be great for Andrea so she doesn't feel she needs to be in charge all the time!

   Breed: Chihuahua Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 2 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 1/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28863
   Current Location: Foster Care
Poquito just returned from foster and got very high marks!

Foster notes: “Poquito is not quite housebroken but he is very trainable. He’s people oriented and will look to you for cues. He is very sweet and friendly, a real lap dog. Plays well with other pups too.

He will quieten down after ~ 15 minutes when left alone. He’s good in his crate – he happily slept in his crate at night. Like most terrier types he thinks cats are to play with so a home without small furry creatures would be best.”

Poquioto is ready for a loving home and fun and games! Come meet him here today at Milo Point Richmond.

   Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog - Australian Shepherd Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 2 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 2/2017 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Adoption Pending!
   This dog has special needs.
   Milo ID: 28846
   Current Location: Foster Care
Whiskey is really sweet but a tad shy due to his vision complications (mostly blind, but sees dark and light). He will fit best in a nice home with a yard and protected area, door to house he can get into without complication or hard walls and fall-offs. But he Loves having a home, a bed, other dogs, people....

He is a SUPER FRIENDLY, and loving dog, loves people and other dogs and would do best with patient and understanding people, who will talk to him and give him lots of love! He does not have a mean bone in his body and is fine with kids and cats.

Whiskey is learning to be comfortable walking on leash and going out in the world, into a car etc. He had never been out of the yard he was born into so everything is new! Sweet, sweet boy.

   Name: CYNAR
UNCLE WHISKEY PUP

   Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 3 mos.  Birthday: 1/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28840
   Current Location: Foster Care
** Foster Notes 4/14/19:
I have fostered over 50 puppies and Cynar was by far the best, in the top three. he is the most lovable, friendly ball of joy. He played with our 11 year old lab and out cat. He sleeps all night and naps all day but loves to play as well.**

Cynar is a hoot! He can be playful but can be calm when the occasion calls for it. He’s good with dogs of all sizes and is respectful of big dogs. He’s a smart little boy looking for his forever home.

Early training, consistency, a true commitment to exercise, the space and time they need to develop their minds and bodies fully, makes this breed wonderful companions. They are smart, sturdy, affectionate, cuddly, and demanding dogs. Ongoing socialization with other dogs is important to have a well adjusted and friendly companion.

THE BREED: Catahoulas can be very skilled at climbing, they can be hunters, which is why keeping them socialized with other animals from early on is important - they also can herd. Catahoulas are great at learning tricks as long as they have good amounts of running time they can focus on learning all sorts of things....great for Circus School! Confident, happy pups who are ready to learn all the good things in life and the joys of living with a loving family that treats them as a family member.

   Name: HARVEY
HARVEY

   Breed: Border Collie Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 10 mo.  Birthday: 5/2017 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28830
   Current Location: Foster Care
Harvey is a very handsome, sweet, larger Border Collie types, who gets incredibly attached to his family. He will greet my family, lick our faces, and squeal with excitement when we come home, and he really loves belly rubs. He also cuddles up with me when I'm working from home and sleeps on my bed. He'll let our family do just about anything, I can put my fingers between his toes and cut his nails, and I can open his mouth, give him a hug, even pick him up. He's really energetic and wants to play most of the time. Harvey loves going to the dog park and running around or wrestling with other dogs or playing fetch, and he also loves playing tug of war or fetch inside.

He's really smart, and loves training (especially for a good treat), and is especially great at movement-based tricks. He needs to stay active an entertained, which is in part his Border Collie tendencies coming through. Harvey would do best in a home where he can remain super active, and rarely be alone. He's a Border Collie mix, so he has lots of energy that he loves to direct into specific tasks. I take him to the dog park daily (sometimes twice) and walk him around the neighborhood, but even that doesn't seem to be quite enough for him. When we get home he still wants to play more. I think he'd love to live on a farm where he could be outside and active most of the day. He also really loves his family, and maximizing the amount of time he can spend with his people keeps him happiest. That being said, an environment with a lot of strangers or strange activities might not be great for him. He can be protective or scared around strangers.

Harvey needs to live in a rural environment. Harvey is a loving, loyal dog who should live outside of the urban area he found himself, SF is full of too many interruptions and unexpected noises and people, and worries for him. Rural living, outside of social epicenters, kind, active people and a bit more predictability would suit him well! He loves his people, activity, and learning and being loved!

Jasper is a beautiful, fun loving cat!

He is confident and is the life of the party. He is people oriented, playful boy who thinks he is a kitten still. He loves to chase toys and will play for hours. He will wait at the door for your return or will sit quietly in the kitchen while someone is cooking. Jasper also likes other cats and would do well with mature kids. He has a lot of energy but likes to cuddle with people and will let you hold him. He likes to climb up and hang out on your shoulders. Come meet Jasper soon at Milo Point Richmond.

   Gender: Male
   Age: 2 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 3/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28811
   Current Location: Foster Care
Bernie is a very cute, high energy, long-legged, little guy! Bright-eyed and curious and wanting to be a part of everything! Bernie would love to find an active home with other dogs to play with! He really enjoys hiking and trips to the dog park! But he is also a great snuggler once he is tuckered out! Bernie is currently being fostered with both large and small dogs, and he is doing great with everyone! Bernie would benefit from some further training, but the groundwork for the basics has already been laid and he is a wonderful little boy! Quite the character! Would do best in a home with no young children.

Lovely Thomasina

Is looking for a special kind of home where she can open up and show her true colors. She is shy and can be quite fearful at first - but when given time she is incredibly sweet. She loves to have her head scratched and will let you pet her but does not like being picked up.

This beautiful girl resembles a Ragdoll or Siamese and came in with other similar cats (like her friend Libra) from a hoarder situation. Come visit her at Milo Point Richmond today!

$200 adoption fee.
