Meet Heather! She is such a sweet girl who would love a family that loves to go on walks and adventures. She tends to be submissive when you go down to pet her but when it's time for a walk she is a wiggle butt! She would need a home has kids over 10 years old and she is jumpy (which that can be trained out of). She wants nothing but to please her people and be loved on.

   Breed: German Shepherd Dog
   Gender: Male
   Age: 4 yrs. 6 mo.  Birthday: 5/2016 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30475
   Current Location: Milo Point Richmond
Foster Feedback: “Champ is a friendly and handsome companion. He is happiest when curled up on the couch with his humans getting belly rubs. Indoors he is an angel and has great house manners. He doesn’t bark/whine, get into food/household objects or have accidents.

At night he sleeps quietly on his bed his in the living room without disturbing anybody. He bonded quickly with both housemates, he loves to walk around and check on everyone throughout the day. He is very gentle with every type of person he has encountered. Champ also behaves well during car rides.

Outdoors Champ needs a bit more patience and training. He is working on his leash pulling, but has improved greatly since we have had him and took the time to train firmly. He gets very worked up around other dogs which leads to him pulling hard and barking very loud. We are not sure if he is being aggressive or playful, but we always keep our distance from other dogs.

Champ is not very toy oriented but does respond well to certain treats and affection. We were told he can jump high fences, so he either needs a home with very high secure fences or be leashed whenever outdoors. We are currently giving him 3-4 walks a day which seems to keep him content.”

   Name: BRODY
BRODY AUSSIE SHEP
More Photos
   Breed: Brittany - Australian Shepherd Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 7 mo.  Birthday: 4/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30244
   Current Location: Milo Point Richmond
Brody is a bit shy and needs an experienced adult household. He shows great potential but will need a predictable environment, lots of exercise and love! Brody LOVES to play fetch and LOVES treats. He would need a home with a high fence as he has shown us he can climb a 6ft fence here at Milo.

Brody takes time to warm up to you, so a household that can be patient with him would be ideal. NO YOUNG CHILDREN - your children must be 16 years and older. He can be wary of strangers, so with a slow introduction he should be okay! He is dog friendly, but needs to be supervised with other dogs as he can be a little too excited. He would benefit from some more training and socialization.

Foster notes: Brody is a super sweet and smart dog who gets compliments from everyone he meets. He needs lots of exercise and love, and he is very loving in return. Ideally he'd have access to a big open space to play fetch, would be very active for a couple hours a day, and would cuddle up with you on the sofa each night. He appreciates a good routine, and will be ok with the routine that works for you once it's established, so long as he gets enough of that playtime. If he gets bored he will persistently ask for your attention.

He hasn't been trained much, but knows how to sit and learns very quickly. He is housetrained already. He loves treats but doesn't beg too much for food. He doesn't bark much. He is very athletic and can climb a 6' fence depending on the type. A taller fence, adding rollers to the top of a fence, or a very long tie-down cable that gives him just the right amount of movement, could all be good ways to let him outside without worrying about fence-jumping.

It takes Brody time to become totally comfortable with you. It might be a month or so before he reveals all of his instincts and behaviors. He guards the home once he feels comfortable within it, and may take a little time to get warmed up to strangers who try to enter. Though he will bark at them, he's never shown signs of aggression, and is very sweet once he knows they're friends.

Brody has a very high prey drive. He gets really fixated on squirrels, cats, and small dogs. This is something you'll want to learn to manage through training. He should not be in a house with cats or small animals, and it is not safe to take him to off-leash dog parks because his instinctive response to small dogs is unpredictable. He's not aggressive in general but he will stand up for himself if another dog attacks him. He plays incredibly well with medium and large sized dogs, and is in heaven when he gets to run and chase with them. He would do incredibly well in a situation where he had one or more active dog friends he could see every day.

Brody hasn't had enough exposure to very small children to know for sure how he would do with them, but he often seems scared or uncertain of them when passing on the street. When he gets very excited during play he might want to use his teeth a bit. No more than most dogs, but this is something to be aware of if you have small children. He has done very well with adults and kids over the age of 8 or so.

$450 adoption fee.

   Name: BALTO
BALTO

   Breed: Siberian Husky - Alaskan Malamute Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 3 yrs. 11 mo.  Birthday: 11/2016
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30096
   Current Location: Milo Point Richmond
This beautiful boy is very people friendly and social. Balto loves to run and is believed to have perhaps decent recall! He likes to dig if bored and alone - like any proper Nordic breed typically will so needs people time and not being left alone in a back yard .... nobody loves that!

No other dogs in the home.

Foster notes: We walked Balto for three hours and played ball for two hours. He doesn’t seem to get tired. He’s very sweet and loves belly rubs! His leash walking has improved since this afternoon. High voices makes him hyper and jump at people, but calm voices does not. He also likes to dig. He loves to give lots of kisses right before he tries to lie down on your lap. He countersurfs, so all the food is now locked away in the kitchen. He likes watching TV. He’s like a giant sweet cute untrained puppy. he’s crazy sweet and likes to cuddle and be near people!

Balto's Adoption fee is sponsored by a generous person!

   Name: MIMI
JUDO and MIMI - MIMI

   Breed: Siberian Husky
   Gender: Female
   Age: 2 yrs. 11 mo.  Birthday: 12/2017 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29980
   Current Location: Milo Point Richmond
Foster Notes:
We have had Mimi and Judo for about 3 weeks and so far, they have been wonderful. We were a little hesitant about fostering two dogs that were big but having them around seems easier than when we foster one dog.

These two are the sweetest dogs you’ll ever meet.

All they want to do is cuddle and just want to be shown love and affection. Both dogs are extremely intelligent and know how to sit. Mimi knows how to lay down and shake as well. We have a cat as well and they are interested in them but also scared. We would recommend though that whomever adopts Mimi and Judo have a backyard even if not massive. Just something for them to trot around and play in.

No other dogs in the home.

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! Adoption fee $800 for the pair.

   Name: MAZZY
MAZZY

   Breed: Labrador Retriever - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 4 yrs. 9 mo.  Birthday: 2/2016 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28938
   Current Location: Milo Point Richmond
   Status: On Hold or Not Available at this time
Meet Mazzy! He is a sweet boy who can take some time to trust you, but once he does, he is very lovable. No kids in the home, as he is shy with strangers.

Foster notes:

Mazzy is a very lovable and loving dog with a lot of potential. Given his probable lack of socialization and fear of strangers, we think he would be best in an adult-only household, and with someone who understands and will work with a dog who shows some signs of fear/aggression. He needs someone with a lot of patience who is willing to put in the time and energy to teach him rules and boundaries. He improved substantially over just a couple of weeks with regular training and exercise, but he needs firm guidance, consistency, and love.

What he loves: He loves squeaky toys and hard chew toys, but essentially, he loves any and all food. He loves cuddling and sleeping in the bed and preventing you from making the bed. He loves laying by your feet while you work, and loves long hikes outside. If he has a chance to be off-leash, he has the goofiest zoomies. He loves to roll in cow pies (beware!) and he loves sticking his head out of the car windows.

What he knows: He knows “sit,” “paw,” a little bit of “stay” and “wait.” He is pretty good on the leash unless he is fearful or trying to chase a critter. He has not stolen any food off the table, but he likely would if given the opportunity.

Other dogs: He loves playing with other dogs, but if the other dog shows any signs of aggression or defensiveness, he will likely reciprocate and attack. So he would probably do best hanging out with a familiar dog friend who isn’t very reactive. He is also reactive on the leash, so narrow trails and hallways are areas to pay attention to.

Strangers: He used to try to run away from every stranger with his tail between his legs, and he continues to be fearful, especially of larger groups of people. But he has gotten much better and will now stand quietly (albeit a bit warily) and let people pass on hiking trails. He is also terrified of bicycles and skateboards, but has gotten better with them as well. He just hasn’t gotten enough socialization in his life, but he will continue to improve.

Potty training: He marked in our house several times (no pooping accidents), but it is likely due to previous dog pee smells. In a different home, he did not have a single peeing incident. He is probably not 100%, but seems like he gets the general idea.

Other notes: Even though he is scared of men more than women, he tends to get used to them as long as they are good with dogs. He definitely loved both of us (one female, one male) and slept in our bed every night. Unfortunately, he did show some fear/aggression towards one male roommate, and the situation worsened with time. Thus, we recommend that all household members are fairly experienced with dogs and/or meet him before taking him home.

He would do really well in a home with its own large yard where he can play with toys, but he definitely needs plenty of exercise. He really enjoys long hikes, and we have taken him to Wildcat Canyon many times. He will chase wildlife if you’re not careful! He also seems to become quite energetic and hyper in the evening time – perhaps because he doesn’t enjoy daytime neighborhood walks if lots of people are out and about. He had a tendency to randomly pick things, like pillows or tables, and start chewing, but if he has plenty of toys he'll be fine!

WALLACE AND GROMMET

   Breed: Chihuahua - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 3 yrs. 10 mo.  Birthday: 1/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 26669

*Wallace would love a foster that has one or two confident dogs to show him life.*

5/19/20- Foster notes "Wallace and Grommet- Very sweet yet shy guys. They were fostered with a small dog, an old (grumpy) large dog, and a young large dog. Wallace and Grommet got along well with all of them and enjoyed playing with the young dog, once they got to know each other. They were fostered in a house with two dog friendly cats but they did not get along. Grommet especially seemed fearful of the cats and tried to chase them.

Wallace and Grommet would do best in a home where they can follow and attach to another dog as they tend to follow the other dogs which makes moving them around the house and yard easier.

Wallace and Grommet are not cuddly with humans and fear their touch. After a week of fostering, they did sleep on my bed with one of my other dogs. After three weeks both would let me touch their backs when they were laying next to me. Wallace (brown) did better with the petting although Grommet (white) is more courageous when up and around the house and yard. Both dogs absolutely love treats, bones and food. They also love playing and chewing on toys. They are learning what is and isn't allowed to be chewed on. I found that having lots of dog toys around helped greatly with the chewing. Wallace especially needs a chew toy at night, I believe, to help relieve nervous energy. Grommet loves to play and catch toys. Once Wallace and Grommet understand the routine of the house, they settle in well. Until they understand the routine they need treats to help them move through doors and such (as they are fearful of doors/doorways). Grommet settled into the schedule sooner, but Wallace follows as long as the human is not too close. For instance, when letting them in the house from the yard I would walk into a corner of my room to allow Wallace to come in, if I stood near the door, he was too fearful.

They spent most of their time in the yard or in my room with the back door open. When the door is open they will go out as needed to go potty. They also will sleep through the night and if Wallace needs to go outside he will pace to let you know. Other than a few marking accidents at the begining of being fostered (which is common in a new environment) they had no accidents in the house.

They are very sweet boys who need patience, time, and a calm environment to help them come out of their shells. Other than their timidness, they need pretty minimal day to day care as they prefer to be in the yard during the day (they LOVE sunbathing) and they do not go on walks (they were never familiarized with leashes)."

One of two shy brothers who came up from Bakersfield, though were not at all adoption candidates, Basically close to feral upon arrival - they had been trapped.... poor little guys, never had the kindness or comforts of a loving home, or caring people.

   Name: MAXFIELD
MAXFIELD
More Photos
   Breed: Australian Cattle Dog - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 13 yrs. 10 mo.  Birthday: 1/2007 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   This dog has special needs.
   Milo ID: 12848
   Current Location: Milo Point Richmond
*Available for foster *

*Foster Notes* "We love Max! Maxfield is a gentle, sweet dog. Easy on leash, good with other animals. He is definitely mature, in his golden years. Loves hikes. He seems to have some arthritis, usual aches and pains upon standing. He likes to be close, cuddled and brushed. Would be great with a mature family or household. A wonderful companion."

Update: Maxfield is a personal favorite of the Sanctuary manager. He is a very loving and highly bonding boy who would do best in a low-key and predictable home of his own. He can get along very well with many dogs and is doing beautifully with meeting and learning to trust new people. It has actually been many years now since he has had any issues, needing only to have his new friends give him some time without making him feel cornered, and in no time he responds with affection. Some staff believe he may be deaf, and his eyesight isn't great, which may be why he startles easily and reacts negatively. Given that he has bitten in the past, he needs space in a rural home and careful introductions, and we are holding out hope that we will find him that special someone!

Former Bio: SHOULD THIS FACE BE ON A POSTER OR WHAT! Agile MAXFIELD adores water. . . and a jet stream of water from a hose makes him dance and squeal with delight. BUT, he has both predictable and unpredictable fear responses to sudden approaches by both dogs and humans and lacks bite inhibition. WHY? This very handsome young fellow is recovering from past abuses including major teasing and taunting from kids in the neighborhood where the woman who rescued him lived. So, teenage boys, and perhaps men in general, are not going to be Maxfield's favorites or area of comfort for awhile. But he is resilient and already relaxing considerably compared to when he arrived. He has a very smiley appearance and wants to be happy! With enough time and space to get acquainted and observe and have freedom of movement, he adjusts quite well. He is also very responsive to commands, and smart!

Maxfield is suitable for an ADULT ONLY home with very savvy dog handlers, who know and love herding breed types, and who want to take up the challenges of his fear aggression and lack of bite inhibition.
