   Name: CALY aka CALYPSO
   Breed: German Shepherd Dog - Rottweiler Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs. 9 mo.  Birthday: 11/2016
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29035
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Adorable, sweet, spunky Calypso (Caly) is a highly intelligent and sensitive2-year-old German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix. She has so much love and affection to give to the people she trusts and bonds with. For Caly, an ideal home would be a single family detached house with a large yard, another dog friend (or friends!) to play with, and a confident, experienced dog owner. Ideally,she would have lots of opportunities for playtime and mental stimulation, as she’s a busy, brilliant girl. She feels most comfortable with adults, and likely wouldn’t do well in a home with children, as she’s shown some uncertainty around them. Caly has her basic obedience down, is housebroken, spayed, fully up-to-date with her vaccinations, and is a trainable, quick learner. She also loves belly rubs and car rides!

Caly does amazingly well with other dogs and quickly makes new canine friends. She feels a great deal of comfort, security, and calm when sharing a home with them, as she’s grown up with adult dogs around to mentor her. She would thrive with another dog or two she could bond with in her new family. Caly also gets along well with kitty friends! She maintains a playful sense of curiosity around cats, and will even engage in gentle play if they approach her wanting to do so. Sometimes, Caly will feel the need to protect her favorite toys and food from other dogs and, rarely, people. She’ll audibly mumble and grumble, but ultimately understands that doing so isn’t necessary.

As Caly has grown older, she’s unfortunately become wary of new people and strangers. She can show some fearful reactivity around strangers on walks or with new people who come into the home. At times, she’ll bark,growl or show ‘air-mouthiness’ to express that she’s uncomfortable and needs more space. It can take time for Caly to build trust. However, if Caly’s got another dog friend by her side when new people come into the home, she actually improves behaviorally. Her canine companion(s) help her to see that new people aren’t as scary as she may think they are.

Once Caly knows and trusts you, she will be attached to you for life. Caly provides a type of love that isunconditional and wholehearted. Her personality is endearingly quirky, and she wants nothing more than to sharethe kindness, warmth, and tenderness she has so much of with you. She deserves a fantastic home, a fantasticperson (or people!), and a fantastic new dog friend to live with that can give her all the love, attention, space, andstructure she deserves.

Jupiter is a very shy girl who chooses dogs over people as friends. She originally came to Milo from the Stanislaus Shelter and was adopted by a lovely woman who did her best with her, but who also lived in the noisy city where Jupiter just could not get comfortable. She's currently residing at our sanctuary for a much needed break from our urban environment, but is still available for adoption.

Little cutie from Berkeley Animal Services, now up here at the Milo Sanctuary due to having aggressive tendencies, possessiveness.... but people love him and he could go to a quiet adult only home where people won't invade his space, and can handle a quirky, nipping dog.

   Breed: Alaskan Malamute Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 7 yrs. 9 mo.  Birthday: 11/2011 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28906
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Gazpacho sadly has tested postive for Heartworm so will need treatment - he is a fairly mellow charecter so the long stint of cage or room rest wont be so very difficult if he can just hangout, go to work, or just stay at home in a quiet area... Gorgonzola and Gazpacho lived together their whole lives and are both charming. Their person passed away and they ended up at the Clearlake Animal Services and as they are middle aged or senior - little chance did they have, which is crazy because these are lovely dogs, tail wagging, happy, solicitous of affection, silly, adorable and looking for love and playtime!

Once Gazpacho starts his HW treatment he will need to stay calm, keep his heart-rate low.... for a few months. he would love a home - adoptive or foster at least! Super sweet bog boy! No cat household

   Milo ID: 28903

Lovely, shy, attentive, sensitive girl - Helen's been handled roughly by other animals and people it seems one of her ears has quite a bit ripped or bitten off. Helen is a loyal dog who sticks right next to you on leash, but is shy and elusive. Protective, watchful girl, fine with other dogs.

   Breed: Domestic Medium Hair
   Color:  Grey and white
   Gender: Female
   Age: 9 mos.  Birthday: 11/2018
   Milo ID: 28900
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Samantha has not been around people much so she is a bit shy. She might hiss at first but it is just a soft one and once you start talking to her she feels better. She loves her wet food, so giving that would certainly win her over!

Samantha needs a home that is quiet and better with no young kids. She is a very sweet cat.

   Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier - Hound Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 1 yr. 2 mo.  Birthday: 6/2018
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28890
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Happy is just that! HAPPY! She wants to try to please, and anxious to run and play - a physical player with dogs, but dog social with dogs her size, she just needs dogs that can tolerate her in their face, their business and ready to romp and roll with the punches and body slams! Fun girl, who is not all that keen on kids in the home, she is protective and not keen on a lot of visitors.

Happy has come up to the Milo Sanctuary to chill out for a bit, as a kennel environment is too frustrating for her. She is a sweetheart, looking for a home with loving, active adults, a good yard, hiking, playing, and ongoing training and consistency.

   Name: YUBA

   Breed: Labrador Retriever - German Shepherd Dog Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs. 5 mo.  Birthday: 2/2017 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28847
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Surrender notes: “Yuba is a beautiful lab mix who loves her family. She is a pleaser who responds well to treat training and LOVES to play fetch with a ball. She’s very cuddly at night and is always ready to play.

She does wonderfully in the crate, often going in on her own accord, and rides very well in a car. She will reward her owner with responsiveness to commands, eagerness to please and affection. She is house trained and generally very well behaved at home on her own but prefers to be with her owner as much as possible.

Yuba loves to run and is quite fast when given an open space to let loose. She would do best at a home where she can run in a fenced area, as she often out paces a person's running pace when given the opportunity. A home in a non urban area with land for her to run would be ideal. She hasn't been trained on an invisible fence but would likely do well with that option as well.

Yuba is an anxious dog that will need a patient owner who offers her a consistent, loving environment. Her anxiety and fear can complicate interactions with new people, animals and adverse situations and she has a tendency to apply this fear in protecting her owners. For this reason she will need a forever home that does not include small children or frequent new visitors. Yuba thrives in a steady peaceful environment that allows her a space of her own, such as a crate or cozy bed. She will really enjoy being as close to her parents as possible though, (bed/couch) if given permission.

Yuba is a wonderful, loving dog that will thrive in a home that can provide her the space to run, peace and quiet, love, patience and consistency she needs to bring out her best.”

Libra is a beautiful Ragdoll mix that came to Milo with her friend Thomasina from a hoarding situation. She is very shy and needs more socialization around people, but she is already opening up to staff here at Milo.

Libra is happiest in a quiet household/ space where she can take the time she needs to open up and get to know her surroundings. Once she is settled in, Libra has a calm, mellow personality and enjoys being pet. $250 adoption fee.

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. Must be kept indoors and may take at least a year of careful attention to adjust to a new home.

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.

   Name: PHOENIX

   Breed: Ragdoll
   Color:  Flame Point
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 6 mo.  Birthday: 2/2018 (est)
   Milo ID: 28807
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Phoenix is a gorgeous long haired flame-point boy with stunning blue eyes. We do not know much about his background except that he is from a hoarding situation. He is afraid of people so he may hiss at first, but once he gets to know you, he will let you pet him. He really needs an experienced cat person with patience and compassion to take him home and learn how to trust.

Phoenix is highly food motivated and this is a great way to build trust and a bond with him (he does LOVE wet food). His ideal home would be quiet and calm environment with no children.

   Breed: Australian Cattle Dog - Australian Shepherd Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 5 yrs. 5 mo.  Birthday: 2/2014 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28747
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Sweetie is just that--an absolute love! She is affectionate and bonds quickly, and walks great on leash. She gets along with other dogs but does have herding tendencies so will need a cattle dog/ herding breed-savvy human. She would do best in a home without frequent guests coming or going, as she can nip when she feels overwhelmed. A moderately active and consistent home will allow her to blossom as she grows comfortable. With her attentive eyes and beautiful markings, this mellow girl will charm anyone she meets. Come fall in love with Sweetie today!

   Breed: German Shepherd Dog
   Gender: Male
   Age: 4 yrs. 6 mo.  Birthday: 2/2015 (est)

Brewster is very smart. Training him in basic obedience was pretty easy but, as with all dogs, it takes constant reinforcement. He know sit, down, stay, heel and come. He knows to sit when I stop walking. When we’re home, he’s a complete couch potato, happy to sleep on his bed. He chooses to sleep in his crate rather than in bed with me. He’ll jump up on the bed when I’m in my bedroom but jumps off when I get settled. He will follow me from room to room but doesn’t pay much attention to me when he does. He isn’t demanding in terms of attention but loves his scratches. He loves playing with other dogs, particularly when they’re off leash. He also is friendly toward dogs when they both are on leash provided the \ other dog is friendly. This is true in matter the size of the other dog. He isn't very food motivated. When training him, I resorted to using cut up pieces of hotdogs. Usually I feed him a combination of wet and dry food, which he sometimes ignores for hours. When it’s just the two us or someone that Brewster knows well, he’s a sweet dog. Brewster can become protective of his person so ideally he'd go to a very rural / low key setting with not a lot going on.

HIGHWAY is lucky to be alive. Found injured and scraped up, he was taken into the vets in Merced through New Beginnings....he checked out okay with scrapes and cuts and bruising but seemingly no serious injury, then he got neutered....Highway is settling in, he needed a place to go. He may be a Milo Sanctuary candidate, we'll see!

indeed He is at the Sanctuary.... feral!
