   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30173
   Current Location: Foster Care
Cutie-pie Pitty pups, four of them, hopefully off to foster for a couple weeks. Charmers that would for sure be dead, as they landed in a shelter that doesn't even do adoptions.... thanks to New Beginnings for Merced County they were pulled and are now safe at Milo!

As with all puppies these little chinks will need lots of attention, socialization, training and take time, patience, energy, a true commitment and resources! Think hard about adopting a pup they need consistency and a true commitment to training and becoming a welcome and enjoyed member of a family! Milo does not give refunds on puppy adoptions.

$450 adoption fee.

1/24/20- Foster Update:
Marjorie may seem shy at first, but it doesn't take her long to come out of her shell and show you her spunky personality! She is playful and affectionate and is an eager walking companion. When in the house, she is mellow and a good snuggler. She loves to play with her best buddy Davina and would likely bond easily with another small dog. Marjory is very sweet and adorable. She’s a little charmer and would love to be in a home with another small dog.

Davina is very sweet and adorable. She’s a little charmer - but would love to be in a home with another small dog. More information on her soon. Ask Staff about our ten day "get acquainted" period built in with adoption.

   Breed: Chihuahua - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 4 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 12/2015 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30131
   Current Location: Foster Care
Foster Update: Sweet Mavis is now going by Mabel. She is super soft and sweet. Although she came from an apartment with many other dogs, she is well adjusted and fit in easily with our two big dogs, one of whom isn’t a big fan of new dogs. She is playful and already attached. She hasn’t been outside much as we need to have her spayed and need to be super careful as she was only inside before arriving at Milo but she is pee pad trained. She looks like she may be part spaniel. Loves people and gives kisses.

Coming from a hoarding situation in Bakersfield - a total of 34 dogs in a apartment. Mavis has never been outside. She and others who have arrived will need reassurance, love, time and patience to become the wonderful dogs that they have the potential to be!

   Breed: Chihuahua
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr. 3 mo.  Birthday: 10/2018 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Adoption Pending!
   Milo ID: 30125
   Current Location: Foster Care
She's pretty bold and confident, ready for adventure and friends. She loves a lap but is by no means a chill, lap dog - she is interested in all things in her realm - and wants to check it all out. She'll see what she wants, engage, possess, and carry on! - she is a 5 pound force! But not noisy, just confident, and working on her comfort zone with large dogs. $450 adoption fee.

Milo Foundation's Adoption Contract offers a 10-day built in fostering period on adult animals (over ten months age) where adopters can spend time getting to know their newly adopted pet and determine how it feels to share their home with this new dog or cat. During this 10-day period, adopters are welcome to take their new animal to be evaluated by professionals in the field or seen by their veterinarian. If you determine it is not a good fit and we cannot help you make it work; the animal can be returned for a refund minus a $50 admin fee.

   Name: PONYO
HEELER SISTERS - PONYO
More Photos
   Breed: Queensland Heeler
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 12/2016 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30115
   Current Location: Foster Care
Foster notes:

“Ponyo is very friendly w/ dogs, people, and not too interested in chasing our chickens. She has easily bonded with us humans and especially with our other dog. She has some classic cattle dog velcro attachment to her handlers.

She is getting the hang of neighborhood walks, she likes to stay close and keep pace with our dog. She is beginning to be more calm with meeting and greeting other dogs on walks just great and the more she goes to parks and in social situations she seems less and less scared of big dogs or loud barking. Ponyo is beginning to get playful and loves to chase our dog as he fetches frisbee or ball. For over a week, she has had no potty accidents in the house and is going potty in the yard and on walks.

Ponyo is very calm in the car, hanging out with me at my work, on the sofa, and a super cuddle bug at night. She is now better entering doorways and buildings and dealing with the loud noises of the city life. She has some chewing behavior but she is not destructive and we have been giving her bully sticks to keep her busy. She has been quiet when we have left her at home and will bark at the usual door knocks, or buzzers.

Ponyo is a perfect size to be able to pick up and manage, she is not nippy art all w/ human hands. She has lots of medium size dog stamina energy but can be a very mellow girl too. I am feeding our two dogs at the same time but with some distance and she is relaxing a bit but is still a little scared. She is not resource guarding her food. She knows "NO" and will back off. She really likes companionship with our dog but the only space she seems to not want to share is the bed when I am in it (Herding me?) but does not seem to mind sharing the bed when we are not in it and they are napping. She is beginning to have some recall with treats and keeps close with her new buddy (our dog) and me."

   Name: SHAZAM
SHAZAM

   Breed: Spaniel - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 2 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 12/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30102
   Current Location: Foster Care
1/18/20 Update:
Shazam is doing well! He is friendly with everyone, adults, kids, cats and other dogs of all sizes. He likes to be with others and does appear to have a little separation anxiety when left alone. He has attempted to dig under the gate when home alone. He has lots of energy for play and walks. He is learning the commands off and down. Will fetch or retrieve. We are working on his begging at the table. He also has a strong preference for being on the furniture and in a people bed at night. He will make someone a very loving companion.

12/24/19 Foster Update:
Shazam is doing very well in his foster home! He is house trained, and gets along well with everyone- adults, kids, and cats. He is a very social little guy and stays close to whoever is around. He is affectionate and loves a lap when one available. He loves walks or just playing ball in the backyard. He is learning the difference between people food and dog food as his first night he seemed only interested in people food.

This sweet boy loves to be around people and other dogs! He would love a home with another dog or kids who will cuddle him. He will sit on your lap and give you lots of kisses, and he is an excellent co-pilot in the car! Shazam wants nothing more but to please you and be your best friend for life! He is still learning to walk with a leash, but with the right training and patience he should get it down.

   Name: VANESSA
VANESSA PLUS FOUR - VANESSA

   Breed: Terrier - Chihuahua Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 11/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30064
   Current Location: Foster Care
Vanessa is lovable and friendly.

She gets along well with other dogs, cats and people of all ages. Her foster has a 40lb dog who Vanessa doesn’t mind at all. Vanessa is good with sharing and doesn’t guard. She is a lapdog who loves being with you but can also be independent in the house. The foster says she’s housebroken and is working on teaching her how to be alone when she leaves for errands. She is super affectionate and will return your attention with love and devotion. What a sweetheart!

Vanessa is a really lovely companion - she'd be very happy going home to a family with the time to spend with her, lavishing love and attention. She'd be great as a second dog or hanging out with your cat!

$450 adoption fee.

   Name: CAM
GRACIE & CAM

   Breed: Beagle
   Gender: Male
   Age: 4 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 11/2015 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30050
   Current Location: Foster Care
Cam and Gracie are siblings and have always lived together. They are friendly, outgoing, social, happy dogs! These two charmers, who are a bonded pair, want nothing but to please everyone and each other. Cam and Gracie love to cuddle, kiss and play together. They would love a family that can give them lots of affection and would do well with children of any age. They will be an amazing addition to any active, fun-loving human family.

Cam is a 5-year-old neutered male who is easy going, still has his puppy energy, and loves most people. He is the type of boy who loves his sister and looks out for her. Cam seems to have a little more energy than Gracie but still would not require a high amount of activity. He is super friendly, loves giving you kisses and will great you with a typical beagle howl/bay. He does well with other dogs as long as they aren’t’ overly alpha. He is very gentle with babies and toddlers.

Gracie is a 5-year-old spayed beagle. She is the type of girl who loves to be loved. She loves her brother but is also people oriented. Give her some pets and the look in her eyes will tell you how much she appreciates you. When she sees you, she will greet you with a typical beagle howl/bay. She is super friendly and she is very good with babies, children, and people of all ages. She is dog friendly as well.

$850 adoption fee for the pair.

   Breed: Poodle
   Gender: Female
   Age: 7 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 11/2012 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30047
   Current Location: Foster Care
Adorable little one-eyed bandit! Sweet Petunia was so shy and aloof when she came to us, but under a foster's patient and loving care, she's really come out of her shell and loves to be with her people! Her tail is now constantly wagging while she gets the head scratches and belly rubs she enjoys. She shadows their dogs and joins them on their runs. Petunia is still shy with new people, but she warms up after slow introductions. Because sudden movements make her nervous, she would do best in a home with no young children. With some socialization and training, this tender and sweet girl will be the perfect addition to any family!

$450 adoption fee.

   Name: WINNIE
WINNIE PLUS EIGHT
More Photos
   Breed: Siberian Husky
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr. 8 mo.  Birthday: 5/2018 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29995
   Current Location: Foster Care
1/24/20 Foster Notes:
Winnie is a wonderful dog -- gentle, calm, friendly to all, and interested in everything. She is enjoying long daily walks, car excursions, romping in the yard, and cuddling. She has not spent any time with children while she's been with us, but we would predict that she would love them (and they love her). She has spent time visiting friends who have dogs, and did not have any issues. We have left her alone in the house for a couple of hours, with doors strategically closed and edible items kept out of reach, and she hasn't gotten into any mischief. We were warned to be alert for escape attempts, but there haven't been any. She likes being near us, following us when we go to a different part of the house -- in case there is something interesting that is about to happen. We are not using a crate, not sure how she would take to one. Do note that a good vacuum cleaner should be part of the equation for Winnie's home. There is fur. But it comes in a loveable and lovely package!

Foster Notes:
“Winnie is both beautiful and sweet. She is very gentle and affectionate and has a stable psyche. She will let you touch any part of her body and even take her food away. She is a very clean dog who doesn’t smell. She loves to run and like all huskies will need plenty of exercise. Are you willing to get out on the trails for a good hour twice a day? That is what will be needed to keep this girl happy and sane!

She is very predatory towards small animals so I would not recommend her to a home with cats. She seems fine with mellow dogs, but not aggressive or dominant ones. She has a few quirks, like chewing on personal hygiene products that are left around, like Chap Stick and toothpaste. Another quirk is that she likes to do her business in the yard, not on a walk, so it’s advisable that you have a yard. Winnie is also an escape artist so you’ll need an extremely secure and tall fence.”

Winnie is very friendly and an easy going Husky, now we are going to see how she is away from her pups as an independent adult, looking for a loving home. She LOVES long hikes, is affectionate and sweet as can be!

$450 adoption fee.

   Name: PEPPER
PEPPER
   Breed: Domestic Short Hair
   Color:  Brown Tabby
   Gender: Male
   Age: 11 yrs. 5 mo.  Birthday: 8/2008
   Milo ID: 29983
   Current Location: Foster Care
Pepper will warm your heart and is a BIG LOVE who likes tummy rubs. He sadly lost his home at 11 yrs. of age so is very shy and confused as to why he's at Milo. He's a handsome tabby with a white chest & paws. As he gets to know you this calm, gentle fella will relax and make you smile. He will be a good companion who wants only to love and be loved!

Negotiable adoption fee - we just want him in a great home! FOSTER NOTES: Pepper is a very loving, cuddly, well-behaved and curious cat. Although he was despondent at the shelter, he was making biscuits on our lap two hours after he arrived at the foster home. Pepper’s true nature came out after he adjusted to his new home. He is a purring machine. He does not beg for human food. He loves to explore but not overly so. He knows to stay off tables after stern instructions. We were even able to trim his nails ( patiently and carefully).

   Name: MIMI
MIMI and JUDO

   Breed: Siberian Husky
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 12/2017 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29980
   Current Location: Foster Care
1/23/20- Foster Notes:
Mimi and Judo have been settling in nicely. They are the cuddliest and snuggliest balls of fluff I've ever met! They are typical huskies. Stubborn, smart, dig a little, and into food. They don't really bark at all which is cool. Haven't chewed anything they weren't supposed to either. They did really good at the dog park too! We are currently working on learning new commands.

MIMI and JUDO would love to continue to live together - somewhere with Husky savvy, loving folks with the time and the fencing to keep them safe and contained, loved and exercised. A happy, social, and affectionate husky pair of rascals! They are both friendly, laid-back and affectionate. They're great even in chaotic situations with lots of people around-- they maintain their calm and look to you for guidance. They jump up occasionally but are very responsive to correction. They are adorable and ready for a home! $500 adoption fee - $800 for the pair. Available now.
