Zuni and Quinn are a Bonded Pair and must be adopted together. Bonded pairs have a Reduced Adoption Fee.

Quinn (previously Comanche) is a beautiful Blue Merle Australian Shepherd who arrived at Milo with his girl pal Zuni. They arrived sorely neglected and each at least ten pounds underweight, Zuni at only 23 pounds. After a week in foster care, the foster reports they are doing well!


They are a wonderfully loving and gentle couple. Here are some characteristics we’ve noticed about them during the past few days: Neither is house trained, but Zuni is progressing fairly well

-Good appetites; They eat 3-4 good meals per day.

-Friendly to all people, gentle and loving

-Not interested in toys

-Love car rides, both have difficulty getting in and out

-Share with each other and no disagreements

-Get along with other dogs, not tested with cats

-Quinn has not barked or made any vocalizations

-Zuni is outgoing, energetic and constantly seeks attention

They were separated for about 5 hours when we took Quinn to the groomer. Surprisingly both acted normally when apart, but Zuni was definitely happy to see him when we picked Quinn up. They do follow each other around whenever they’re together. Such a sweet couple...

Zuni and Quinn are a Bonded Pair and must be adopted together. Bonded pairs have a Reduced Adoption Fee.

** Sydney was at our vet's on Monday April 27, 2020 to receive an operation to remove her bladder stones, and hopefully return to full health shortly. The operation went well, and was supported by so many in the Milo community! Thank you all! She is a lovely adoptable cat who will make a great addition to a loving home.

While she is recuperating from her surgery, we ask that you please not send adoption applications for her yet, as we have a reduced staff working very hard for the animals in our care, and we will not be able to reply until after we feel she is ready for adoption. We will update this bio as soon as we feel she is ready for a new home. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sydney is a beautiful calico 6 year old who is in need of a lap to curl up on! A domestic short hair, Sydney love purrrrrr as long as she has a good companion to fulfill her needs for pats. She especially loves nuzzling up to any hand close by and getting to enjoy great company.

Sydney is a well-mannered cat who just needs someone to love. She seems to be unfazed by loud neighbors and will brighten up the life of anyone lucky enough to adopt this sweetie pie.

   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Adoption Pending!
   Milo ID: 30125

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.

   Breed: Border Collie - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 5 yrs. 10 mo.  Birthday: 10/2016 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29823
   Current Location: Foster Care
Keys! A most handsome boy looking for his forever home. A very nice medium (~50 pounds) size - hardy, athletic, agile and grounded boy.

No other dogs in the home.

Foster Feedback: “Keys learned Sit, Shake, Down and Stay. He’s a snuggler and a lover, a tad willful but young and eager to please his people. He’s very treat motivated and will do well with consistent training. He does have a strong prey drive, so no cats or small animals. Keys is dog selective so no dog parks. He can benefit from consistent socialization with other people and animals outside of the immediate family as he does become protective of his family once he is bonded.”

Keys would love to have a home with active people, with kids over 14 yrs of age

Must have dog experience.

   Name: GOLDIE

   Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 5 yrs. 11 mo.  Birthday: 9/2016 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   This dog has special needs.
   Milo ID: 29724
   Current Location: Foster Care
Foster notes:

“Goldie is your perfect companion! Smart, calm and oh so loyal. Goldie is that dog that will take food out of your hands with great care, give you soft kisses and will allow you to give her the longest, warm cuddly hugs. She loves walks and hikes, but for some reason dislikes to run while on leash! She is house-trained and exceptionally well behaved at home and in the car.

Very loving and sweet with humans, but jealous and anxious when she sees other dogs. Reason why she needs to be the only dog at home, and can never be let off leash during walks or at dog parks. When passing by other dogs/animals in general, especially the little ones, it is important to keep a safe distance and continue walking straight past them. The less time she has to pay attention to other dogs, the calmer she will be. However, don’t worry, she is smart, responsive to your commands and does amazing on leash, walking with her is always a great JOY.

With children, she is very calm and patient, but know that she is quite protective of her toys. We recommend her to a house with children over 8 years old that understand they should never play or pull away her toys, even though she eventually forgets about them because she hides them (resource guarding). She loves playing ball, but even more, she loves resting by your side while you're reading a book, working or cooking, and at nights, will quietly follow you around the house like a Velcro dog until she’s convinced you're safe and ready to rest.

Goldie has a noble heart, the look in her eyes speak volumes to the sweetness inside her. Whoever gets to be her human, will most certainly realize what a special dog she is.”

It's suspected that Goldie has Hip Dysplasia. Her adoption fee has been reduced to $250 and future adopters will need to be responsible for future medical care. Adoption fee $250

   Breed: Pekingese - Poodle (Miniature) Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 5 yrs. 6 mo.  Birthday: 1/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   This dog has special needs.
   Milo ID: 29592
   Current Location: Foster Care

This sweet girl Bella is one of a kind! She is super sweet, loves cuddles and is spunky. She does have a medical issue that causes her to have seizures, barks continuously unless she has a chew toy to chew on, paces when she barks and may be a somewhat visually impaired due to the seizures. We are still looking into it, to see what causes them but they haven't affected her personality negatively. She's shown no aggression at all. She's the sweetest pup ever.

Foster Updates: "Bella is the sweetest goofy little butterball. At home she loves to wrestle with and chase my dog and is learning to fetch her soft toys. At the park, while my dog runs around chasing the ball, Bella is very happy to be taking a nap in the grass. She is very dog and cat friendly and would be good in a home with kids over 14. Younger children's high shrill voices can be too much for her. She is mostly housebroken but she occasionally forgets and has an accident. Usually she'll do a little twirling dance when she is about to do her business.

When it is time for her to sleep, it is important to have her sleep in a crate or x-pen in a dark quiet room so she is secured in case a seizure happens. She has napped on the bed with me occasionally but not overnight. She sleeps throughout the night and is good about waiting till morning to use the potty. But as with all dogs you must take her out as soon as she wakes up.

If you are interested in this sweet girl, we recommend researching dogs with seizures, because it is very important to know what to do. She is on medication that helps prevent the major seizures but continues to have partial seizures brought on by noise and light. Bella is not at all aggressive. She is very easy to pill. When given in a pill pocket she thinks her medication is a treat! We can't say for sure but she'll most likely need medication for the rest of her life. There is a graphic under More Photos which shows Partial Seizures - Bella does not have all of the symptoms."


   Name: KONA

   Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog - Terrier Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 yrs. 7 mo.  Birthday: 1/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29323
   Current Location: Foster Care
6/16/20- "Kona is doing really well and thriving. She likes to walk and be off leash in the dog parks and where she is allowed to roam freely & play with the other dogs. Kona gets along fairly well with other dogs. Kona is very affectionate and likes to be massaged with a back scratcher. She likes her squeaky toys and is quite content playing with them. She is learning her commands & now knows to sit, stay, & come. (sometimes she forgets tho). Kona knows not to climb on the sofa but to sleep in her dog beg or on the floor. She is very smart and treat motivated. She has learned not to sit next to the dining table when I'm eating. Kona knows to go to the front door, which means shes wants to go out to pee. She does this in the evening just before her bedtime around 9:30pm. She sleeps through the night in her crate & wakes up around 7:30am when she hears me. The first thing she does is go to the front door to be let out. Kona will thrive best in a small household. A toddler holding food might be too tempting for Kona to resist! " *Foster Notes* 4/10/20 "Kona is an incredibly sweet dog who would make a great part of an active household. She loves belly rubs, pets, and any expression of affection. She is super friendly and expressive, with an infectious smile. She needs consistent training but is very food motivated and eager to please, which makes training easier! She knows sit, come, and is working on stay and leave it/drop it. She tends to dive for any food on the street- making leave it/drop it training all the more important.

She needs an active lifestyle, so having a family that could take her for outdoor adventures consistently and having a backyard to play in would be ideal. Otherwise she may become less receptive to training, including house training. We also let her play off leash a few times around other dogs with no problem.

During our ~2 weeks of fostering Kona, she was not bothered by the level of noise/activity of our neighborhood (SoMa, San Francisco). It is a loud city neighborhood and there was sometimes construction in the building, but she handled it very well. Resource guarding with food wasn’t much of an issue with us, but we were careful not to take food from her after giving it.

We did not let her on furniture and she respected that after some consistent training. Kona was fantastic with adults and other dogs. Upon encountering other dogs she was sometimes interested but calm, and other times she would get more excited but was always manageable and never aggressive. We did not get a chance for her to interact with kids. We feel very lucky to have been able to spend time with Kona, and hope she can find a loving home!"

Kona is a sweet young girl who is looking for dog savvy owners who can provide her with further training and socialization. Due to lack of training in her early puppy months, Kona will need someone who will be patient with her and lead her in the right direction. Kona needs owners who will be very direct with her as she is learning the do's and dont's. She has a nippy behavior which can be unpredictable, so she will need owners who will work with her to end that behavior. Kona is crate trained when let out at appropriate times but still working on being fully house trained.

Kona loves attention whether that be getting belly rubs, taking naps with her foster family or going for walks at Pt Isabel dog park! At the dog park Kona pretty much stays by your side, has great recall and will come when called; because she gets excited when she sees other dogs her approach can be a little forward so using treats and continued work on her recall is important.

An ideal household for Kona would be one as the only animal, as she does have some resource guarding over high value food with both dogs and people. She does not mean to snap but if you do walk by her or try to take food from here, she will let you know that she does not like that. An adult only home would be suggested for Kona, as she has some behavior traits that won't do well with kids. She would love a home that is active and can provide lots of metal stimulation. A home that has land, may do well for her as she loves to run around and play with her toys. No cats or young children in the home!

When taking Kona home, we do not suggest that you let her sleep on any furniture and she can get protective of it. As said before, she is crate trained and would be okay sleeping in there throughout the night. As much as Kona loves to cuddle and be pet, it is important to think of her needs and the right training for her. She is a very sweet dog, but needs owners who can really support her and work with her.

   Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 5 yrs. 3 mo.  Birthday: 4/2017 (est)

Tiger Lily is a great sweet dog who came to Milo with three pups who are all adopted. Now it's her turn to find her loving forever home.

Tiger Lily is great with children, adults and other dogs. She's a little too interested in cats so her new home should not have cats. Tiger Lily has separation anxiety and will need to be in a family with another dog, or someone who's home all the time or someone who can take her to work or doggie day care. Separation anxiety is something that can be worked on but you'll need to be a person with the time and patience it takes. She loves dogs, people, babies....

   Name: BONNIE

   Breed: Queensland Heeler - Australian Cattle Dog Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 yrs. 10 mo.  Birthday: 9/2018 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29081
   Current Location: Foster Care
FOSTER FEEDBACK: "Bonnie is a sweet and curious pup with lots of enthusiasm! She LOVES hikes and runs. 2-3 miles is sufficient for most days, but she’s gone on runs of up to 8 miles and still had energy left for zoomies in the backyard. Bonnie needs a home where she’s provided with appropriate outlets for her mental and physical energy. She is so much fun! A perfect adventure buddy, this girl needs a job! Consistent training and reinforcement will be important for Bonnie. She can be stubborn, but is highly food and toy motivated.

Bonnie tends to bond primarily with the human who she spends the most time with, and will sometimes resource guard them from other family members. This behavior can include growling, lunging, and snapping unless you quickly recognize warning signs. She is incredibly affectionate when everyone feels safe and respected, and hates to disappoint her main human. But, she will absolutely test your boundaries, especially when bored. Bonnie is in need of further socialization with strangers. She defaults to avoidance, pulling back on the leash to get some space if she feels crowded. She makes her discomfort clear by showing her “cow ears” and tucking her tail. But if her human is comfortable and the stranger has food, she will warm up fairly quickly.

Bonnie sleeps quietly in her crate at night, although it still takes some coaxing to get her in (she’d much rather snuggle with her human). Bonnie alarm barks occasionally during the day, but is mostly a quiet and alert companion, following you around and showing interest in whatever you do. She loves being with you! For Bonnie, 5ft of dental floss would be 90% as effective as a real leash. Her recall is exceptional! She is living with a feisty cat and a calm, submissive 100 lb female dog. She shows interest in the cat but is easily rebuffed with a hiss. She is great with the dog when they are playing outside, but can display herding and resource guarding behavior in enclosed spaces. Although she does well with a confident 15-year old, at present she would not be a good choice for children who are too young to participate in her training, or people who may feel intimidated by her exuberance. Any men in the family will need to be patient and gentle as she gets to know them.

**Bonnie is not a low maintenance dog who can sit contentedly in an apartment day after day. This beautiful, smart, and special girl needs someone who can commit to a productive partnership!"

A classic, beautiful red Heeler, with a patch over one eye - but this girl was clearly left without much if any kindness or human interaction. And was mistreated by a man we assume given her fear aggression towards strangers, men in particular. But she is improving but she will not be a great urban on-leash walking on city streets or sidewalks kind of girl as she might snap at passers by. She loves to RUN! She is an escape artist only to be with you, follow, engage and participate. She does bond very quickly with her human and will resource guard them from other dogs in the home. Bonnie is however a master of cuddling!

Super sweet, and very smart. Not so much a shy girl any longer but she is a girl who needs lots of love, socialization and training. She is a protective guard dog - all 25 pounds of her!

She is young and learning to be a great ranch dog thus far - she loves running with our side-by-side work vehicle and then riding on the seat going back, leaning into the driver with a smiling and panting happy face.

$400 adoption fee for this sweet energetic, demanding country girl.

   Breed: Carolina Dog Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 7 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 5/2015 (est)

   Milo ID: 29061
   Current Location: Foster Care
Sammy is a sweet boy, with a rough past, originally from Taiwan, living on a chain, he was recently surrendered to our Sanctuary for guarding, territorial behaviors. Sammy is doing really well in the Sanctuary environment living with two other dogs thus no territory to possess as his or need to guard his home or family. He is used to his new surroundings, new people, and new dog friends. Change is something that will need to happen slowly and with dog savvy people but he has recovered from a lot of his early trauma.

Sammy is doing very well at the Sanctuary - he is making great friends with dogs and people, he is great on leash etc. Still he needs a predictable, special home - but he IS a very good boy! Experienced dog people with another dog and a home that is not a social epicenter will be great for Sammy!

Meet Rita! She is a sweet girl who loves the attention from people. She would need a home with dog savvy people who can provide the appropriate training and socialization. She would need a home where there aren't any small animals nearby and she would need to be the only dog in the home. She has had friends here at Milo but she is selective with who she would like as a friend. She would be okay with kids over the age of 14. She rides well in the car, and will just sit here with a smile on her face. She does love to go on hikes and will snuggle up with you and want all the kisses and love that she can get.
