   Breed: Border Collie - Shepherd Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 yrs.  Birthday: 7/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Adoption Pending!
   Milo ID: 30512
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Meet Joker! Joker is very energetic girl who would need a home with adults only. She has a VERY nippy behavior that will need a lot of work. She needs to be a single dog in the home and doesn't do well with cats or small animals. She needs owners who are dog savvy and really know her breed. Her ideal home would be a house in the country where there is land for her to run and have a job to do.

She would need an owner who is home a lot that can work with her and keep her company as she doesn't do well being alone for a long time. She rides great in the car! $500 adoption fee.

   Name: RUMI

   Breed: Australian Shepherd - Australian Cattle Dog Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 6 yrs. 4 mo.  Birthday: 3/2016 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30501
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Rumi is a sweet, adorable Herder mix who would prefer a quiet home with another confident dog to show her the ropes and to play with! She is great with dogs both big and small, but needs time and patience to build trust with people. She is enjoying living with other dogs at the Milo Sanctuary and we feel VERY strongly that she needs a home with another dog.

She is slow to warm up but once she does she loves to be pet and be with her people. She prefers female company and it should be noted that men do scare her and she'll shy away. She is not aggressive at all, Rumi is sweet and in need of the perfect patient home!

Rumi loves to go for long walks and hikes but is not demanding of it. She loves water, hoses, creeks, pools, ponds.... She is fantastic in the car so road trips and camping would be fun with her once she is more confident and has grown to trust, bond and enjoy life with you.

Adult only home, must have another dog. Adoption fee $450

   Breed: Saint Bernard
   Gender: Female
   Age: 8 yrs. 5 mo.  Birthday: 3/2014 (est)
   Weight: Extra-Large (over 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30496
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Sweet, mellow, big girl here at the Milo Sanctuary along with her pal Melo, a Great Pyr. We hope to place these two together, but will consider separating if the right home but they get very depressed when separated, Well, he, Melo does but frankly they would adjust with another dog ... it would be in their best interest to Stay together BUT better to find them homes if they need be separated, they May get depressed, bark, howl....But if they have people who love them and another dog ... would adjust! Diamond is a dominant female so a smaller submissive female or nice boy she’d do fine.

She is not good around small livestock like goats or sheep - they are used to Alpacas and horses. Melo is not used to leash walking, Diamond is the Alpha of the pair, both are calm and very dog friendly, and Diamond is very food motivated and is an absolute love.

$750 adoption fee for the pair, $400 each otherwise

Miracle is a beautiful and very friendly cow off a ranch in Lake County. She was a favorite of the family, she had been bottle raised and it was a "miracle" that she lived, thus her name and we welcome her and her pal Freddy the cow.

We are looking to place Miracle ideally along with Freddy, BLanca is the more outgoing but Freddy is also sweet. You couldn’t ask for more on a family farm!!

   Name: DYLAN

   Breed: Shepherd Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 3 yrs. 6 mo.  Birthday: 1/2019 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 30216
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
   Status: On Hold or Not Available at this time
Foster Feedback: “Dylan has learned A LOT in just a few days here, like that wake up time is not 5:30am, nor 7:30, but closer to 8:30 or 9. He’s learned “down”, a little bit of “wait”, some “come here”. Thankfully, he learned the difference between toys and shoes pretty quickly, and seems to even understand the word “toy”. He’s been to the beach twice, and loves snapping at the waves!

He still has a lot of important lessons to learn about personal space, controlling his excitement, and not pulling so much on leash, but getting plenty of exercise helps him stay calmer and more focused." Take a look at his really great photos!


Dylan is a sweet boy who needs an active household with one or two adults. He is so loving and friendly in the home, and LOVES playing, (young kids are not a good fit). He needs lots of exercise and someone who understands he needs boundaries and training.

He would benefit as would his adopter by attending some basic training classes. Ongoing play and socialization is important as he is an adult but needs more training on his lingering puppy behavior. Since he has some wild energy, he would do well with an active person and a buddy dog perhaps!

Dylan has been to a 2 week training for manners/ re-activeness while walking on leash where he has shown improvement but he will need a consistent leader to keep up the training, and with good amounts of exercise he will be much easier to train!

Dylan needs a home in either a quiet suburb or a rural environment as he gets anxious when encountering lots of people, bikers, etc. on walks. His approach to other dogs can be forward but with the proper introduction it will be a smoother process.

He loves bones, and knuckles, and durable toys. He enjoys riding in a car and will put his head out to enjoy the fresh air and smells. Dylan loves attention and play time and will not tire quickly.

Anyone training for a marathon?!?!

$400 adoption fee for this enthusiastic, but slightly nervous boy.

Adult dogs have a ten day built in foster/get acquainted period built in with adoption.

   Name: OTTO
More Photos
   Breed: Anatolian Shepherd - Great Pyrenees Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 5 yrs. 8 mo.  Birthday: 12/2016 (est)
   Weight: Extra-Large (over 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29596
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
A wonderful Milo adopter has generously donated half of Otto's adoption fee! His fee is now $250.

Otto is a big beauty of a boy. He is the classic big guardian breed, willing and compliant, stoic, serious and will guard you. He will greet you with tail wagging in his quietly jolly way. Guardian dogs are nocturnal, and tend to stay up at night and bark. It's their job to guard the sheep while the shepherd is sleeping.

No other small dogs in the home. We can dog test w/ your large dog if you bring them with you.

Otto is very sweet and mellow. He loves getting pets and attention. He is also intelligent and trainable, so he knows a few commands like sit, down, back up and even knows to "speak". He is still working on his leash manners. Otto sometimes will show leash aggression which only occurs during walks and with only some dogs. He will also bond with his person and this will bring out his guardian background. These behaviors can be corrected but he will need a dog savvy and committed person to reinforce good behavior. The nocturnal and guarding nature are typical of the breed and should be expected.


Otto needs a quiet home and would prefer to live with just one person and/or another dog his size, but no children and no small dogs. Otto needs a good size piece of land to roam and guard, with few cars going by. He's nocturnal (stays awake at night) and will bark. **His new person must be guardian dog savvy and have the time/patience it takes to continue his training.**

   Name: LADY JANE

   Breed: German Shepherd Dog
   Gender: Female
   Age: 4 yrs. 6 mo.  Birthday: 1/2018
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29504
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
O Lady Jane! This beautiful girl is so deserving of a loving home. She is sweet and friendly but very nervous and insecure out in the world. She came in with her mom Ingrid, but her mom was adopted and now it's her turn! She can spook easily although she walks well on leash once she is comfortable with you. Lady Jane will be able to blossom in a calm, patient and kid-free house hold. She would do best in a rural or suburban setting with plenty of room to run around and perhaps a mentor dog. She is very intelligent--she can open doors--and needs training and further socialization. She will be a perfect companion for someone who can be home a lot of the time, and give her the nurturing she needs. Come meet her and fall in love today at Milo Point Richmond.... she needs a special home devoted to helping her get settled in the world!

   Name: QUEEN

   Breed: Domestic Short Hair
   Color:  Grey tabby and white
   Gender: Female
   Age: 3 yrs. 8 mo.  Birthday: 12/2018 (est)
   Milo ID: 29379
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Queen is a beautiful yet timid young cat that was brought out to our Sanctuary with her kittens. She's very affectionate once she gets to know you. Queen was used to being a mostly outdoor cat, "she loves to explore and after a long day of doing so will come lay on your lap for some well deserved pets."

Basically Queen has become more feral....we'll see.

   Name: BUBBA

   Breed: Pomeranian Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 13 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 6/2009 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 29316
   Current Location: The Milo Sanctuary
Bubba has headed up to the Milo Sanctuary. He has "Psychological differences" - if crated, in a vehicle or other confined situations, he becomes a snarling crazy man. Once out, he is his smiling self, sitting back on his haunches and offering his paw, walking and wagging tail.

Bubba is available for SPONSORSHIP, but adoption only to hermits with no visitors - he can be very sweet, but is bi-polar and a very conflicted fellow.
