   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"

   Name: EDWARD now SIGMA
   Breed: Border Collie Mix
   Adopted: 9/2017
EDWARD now SIGMA"Dear Milo Foundation,

In September 2017, we adopted Edward whom we’ve renamed Sigma. Sigma is a wonderful addition to our family. He’s both adventurous and friendly, which is exactly what we were looking for when we adopted him. We’ve completed beginning obedience, and Sigma is learning a lot of tricks. He needs a lot of mental challenges, and it’s fun to find new things for Sigma to try (like playing with an exercise ball). He always loves long walks in the hills and playing with other dogs.

Cheers Dawn"

   Adopted: 7/2016
IRWIN"Hi all!

Wanted to reach out with a couple of photos. About a year and a half ago I adopted a sweet boy whose name at the shelter was Bane. We know him as The Floof, and he's healthy and happy; lovely and sweet as ever. Thanks for all that you do, from me and also from The Floof.

   Name: LIZZY
   Breed: Queensland Heeler - Australian Cattle Dog Mix
   Adopted: 9/2017
IZZY now LIZZYI just wanted to take a minute to share some GREAT news! My family adopted Lizzy (now Peanut) last Thursday and brought her home on Friday. Although when she met our other rescue dog Olive at your dog park she was pretty shy and skittish, within approximately 30 minutes at home in the back yard the two dogs were fast friends. After a long weekend spent running, playing tug-o-war, wrestling, cuddling, some unfortunate counter-surfing… the two dogs are virtually inseparable.

Peanut is still shy, still slightly skittish, but she’s learning that she’s safe and well cared for here. She’s snuggling with us and accepting all the love. She still isn’t sure that our cats aren’t murderers in disguise, but over time that will settle down also.

Thank you for saving our girl from the shelter in YOLO county and for taking such good care of her until we could find her. She’s the perfect addition to our family.

You all do great work – THANK YOU!!

   Name: TOM now KOJI
   Breed: Australian Cattle Dog - Labrador Retriever Mix
   Adopted: 5/2017

Just wanted to give you an update on Koji (formally Tom). He is truly a dream dog! We adopted him shortly after we lost our sweet dog of 12 years. We weren't sure if it was too soon to think about a puppy(2months) so my husband and son went to meet him. It was love at first site. We cannot imagine our home without him, he is such a sweetheart. He comes on all of our family adventures loves every moment. Thank you for all you do, if it wasn't for you we would have never met our Koji-chan!
