   Name: TROY
   Breed: Terrier Mix
   Adopted: 12/2015
RICHMOND FIVESOME"Dear Milo Foundation,

Happy New Year! It has been a wonderful two years so far with Troy, whom we brought home exactly two years ago today. With a lot of love and patience, Troy has opened up and gifted us with his sweetness and love. We feel so blessed that he is part of our family and wanted to thank you and the volunteers for caring for him while he was with you.

Troy is full of love and energy, and it turns out that he is very social! He loves to meet his friends at Point Isabel and explore the trails at Tilden. In the mornings and evenings, he is full of cuddles and kisses, especially with our 10 year old son. He brings us so much joy and laughter. Thank you for bringing us together. Wishing you a Wonderful New Year!"

LE GRAND FAMILY"Hello Milo Foundation,

Thank you for thinking of us, we have adopted another dog from a shelter in San Jose named Willow. Chiquito and Willow are fast friends and we thank you so much for all you do!

One of my friends adopted from Milo Foundation and raved about it on Facebook and that prompted me to look you up online. You have so many sweet and wonderful dogs and I will recommend to all I know to contact Milo Foundation.

Thank you!!"

   Name: COOKIE
   Breed: Anatolian Shepherd - Golden Retriever Mix
   Adopted: 6/2017
COOKIEHi Milo folks!

I just wanted to let you all know how much we love Cookie!!! We adopted her in June 2017 and we have been overjoyed to have such a sweet, gentle and fuzzy dog!!!

She has earned the nicknames, Cookie Monster, as she loves her treats. Fuzzy Butt is another (she has the fuzziest butt) and, of course, Captain Cookie. She is a fabulous addition to our crew!

Thanks for all the hard work you do. You help the animals, but you also help the people that need the love and companionship.

Thank you,

Cookie and crew!

   Name: GILDA
   Breed: Alaskan Malamute - Shepherd Mix
   Adopted: 8/2017
GILDA"Dear Milo Foundation

Thank you so much for saving my life and connecting me with my new family who loves and adores me, I don’t live outside in some backyard or get left alone at home. I am given plenty of toys to play with and go to daycare when my owners are at work where I play with other doggies. I am spoiled with all the love and attention that all of my kind deserve. God bless you guys and thank you for the work that you do!!

Love, Luna"

   Name: DART
   Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier - Border Collie Mix
   Adopted: 12/2016
Jazmine pup Dart"We adopted Milo (originally Dart) just before last Christmas, about two weeks after he and three of his five siblings visited Sunnyvale for a mobile "puppy socialization" event.

At the time the little goofball was about 20 pounds and was clearly the most obnoxious one in his litter (which is why we chose him); he wanted to play all day, every day, and absolutely nothing's changed in that regard! Despite 12 weeks of beginner and intermediate puppy training, he still gets hyper-excited when he meets new people and dogs, and he's introduced us to nearly a dozen neighborhood dogs out on walks, as they pass him in his yard. (See the "gopher mode" picture.) At least half a dozen have stopped in for play dates in his personal "dog park," and he's happily wrestled with dozens more at the real dog park a few miles away. (He almost invariably gets unsolicited compliments, too! He's super-shiny, like a harbor seal, and actually tri-colored, though it's hard to see that in photos--the "black" on his sides has a subtle golden tinge to it.)

Recently a family member brought home a wee puglet (12 weeks old, 5.4 pounds) for Thanksgiving week, and Milo and the pug had a ball. They wrestled nearly non-stop despite the 15x size differential (Milo was originally estimated at 30-60 pounds and recently passed 81), and he was incredibly gentle the whole time.

Behaviorally Milo's like no other dog we've ever had: he never, ever whines and almost never barks; he's a big-time starer (possibly his one Border Collie trait?); he snores even when he's awake (we think it's his version of purring); he goes nuts when a broom is being used; and his all-time favorite indoor activity is pulling the stuffing out of toys and reducing tennis balls to tiny bits of rubber and fuzz. (Outside he loves to shred palm fronds and pick apart pine cones.) He's a big lovebug--kisses on noses, chins, and ears are given at every opportunity--and will sleep in a people-bed whenever he's given the chance, frequently upside-down. And despite his size, he's still a lap dog...though occasionally he tips one of the chairs as he's climbing onto a lap.

In short: he's as awesome as he looks! We are very, very grateful he's come into our lives, and we're even considering getting him a playmate since our other dog is much older and not at all interested in wrestling. Thank you for bringing us together! Greg"
