   Breed: Pit Bull Terrier - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 11 wks.  Birthday: 11/2018 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28460
   Current Location: Foster Care
Cebu is a love! He loves to play and cuddle. He has a ton of energy and is a strong, strong boy! His potty-training is going well, he already knows to go on pee-pads. He loves other dogs and playing with other dogs. He’s super attached to his brother and cries when he’s not with him. For his socialization, it’d be best for him to be with another dog and children! He’ll take a lot of attention and time. He does best on grain-free food.

We call him ‘lil G. ‘Lil G is a sweetie. He loves to play with his brother and is definitely finding his strength. Although mellow for the most part, he does of outbursts of wanting to run and wrestle. Otherwise, he sits quietly with a toy. He’s very attached to his brother and the other foster dogs and cries if they aren’t all together. It’d be best for him to be in a home with other dogs and kids. He’ll need a lot of attention! Training is getting better. He loves to explore with his brother outside. He does best on grain-free food.

   Name: HEY
An Old Dog Named HEY!
More Photos
   Breed: Shepherd - Pit Bull Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 12 yrs. 4 mo.  Birthday: 9/2006 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28403
   Current Location: Foster Care
Hey was found in Leona Canyon, part of the Anthony Chabot Regional Park in Oakland, on July 20th, 2018. He was lurking in the bushes near the creek. It took about an 1.5 hours from when I first saw him to when I was finally able to put a leash on him. I had 6 other dogs with me at the time, who were very helpful with getting him comfortable enough for me to get close to him. He liked the other dogs quite a lot, but was not so sure about me.

Ideal new home: The type of home that I believe would work best for him would have dog door access to a well fenced yard. He benefits from being able to let himself out during the night, as he can't always hold his bladder until morning. His ideal new owner would be able to take him to work or would work from home. So far he has not been great at being left home alone for more than an hour. If this isn't an option, I think he can do it, but would need yard access and not be able to get through/under/over the fence.

Behavior with other dogs: He is a fairly well behaved dog who gets along well with most other dogs, big or small. He is better with less hyper dogs, which he sometimes finds annoying, but it really depends on the dog, sometimes he likes them quite a lot. He has bitten one dog while with me, but it was a defensive bite. A Labrador attempted to guard a resource from him (something they were sniffing), attacking "Hey!", who bit back, tearing the Lab's lip. He sometimes growls at dogs when he first meets them if they meet face to face, but with supervision he has always been able to get over it pretty quickly and learn to coexist without conflict. He has met a few dogs he is open to playing with, but being on the older side of life, he doesn't have a whole lot of play energy in him. He does like the attention though.

Behavior with cats, people, children: So far he has been great around cats, but I've only seen him around 2 different cats. He pretty much ignores them. He is timid at first around new people, but warms up to them. He always allows people to pet him, but keeps his tail tucked until about 15-30min into the encounter. He has also been great with children, the youngest he has interacted with was 1.5yo. According to Leslie, he grew up around children. She has shown me pictures which prove this.

General Behavior: He gets anxious and restless. This usually manifests as panting, pacing, and drinking too much water. To keep him from doing this, I use a tie-down strapped to the leg of my couch (6' leash). This works well for him because he likes sleeping on my couch anyway. I'll let him loose after a couple hours, send him outside, let him drink a little, and then put him back for more nap time. At night he sleeps in this same spot on the couch, but I don't tie him down. Instead I leave my backdoor cracked so he can let himself out, and I take away all the water bowls. If I don't remove his access to water, he will drink all of it, and then sometimes pee on the couch, I assume by accident (it's not marking). So long as he doesn't have water at night, he doesn't "wet the bed". Milo will get him in for a urinalysis.

He gets anxious when crated, but has gotten much better about it. According to Leslie, he was "never confined". At first he would try to push his way out, and scraped up his snout a little. He doesn't do this anymore. Now he just pants, but can be in a crate for upwards of an hour. I've worked him up to eating in a crate, which has greatly improved his opinion of being crated. Unless I put food in the crate first, he won't go in willingly or on command, but will if I'm touching his collar. I usually don't have to apply a lot of pressure, I mostly just have to be in contact with his collar, and sometimes give a little tug towards the inside of the crate. He does not like riding in a crate in the car, but will do it, and will pant the whole time. He can however be left alone, uncrated in a parked car for up to a couple hours without a problem, but don't leave the windows open very much, if he thinks he can, he might try to climb out. If he doesn't think he can break out, he just curls up and sleeps. He's a funny old dog.

He also has some separation anxiety that kicks in if I leave him at home for more than an hour or so. This is a massive improvement compared to when I first found him, and he couldn't go more than a few minutes before freaking out. I suspect that some of his current anxiety comes from needing to pee and not being able to do so outside. When I do leave him home alone, I usually come back to find a puddle in the living room and the recycling can knocked over in the kitchen. So, it could be a lot worse.

His likes: He loves riding in the car and sticking his nose out the window. He really likes fetch and crunching on plush squeaky toys, but didn't show any interest in balls or toys until after his teeth were fixed. He plays old dog fetch, so, relatively short underhand groundball tosses. He really like

   Name: OSCAR

   Breed: Dachshund - Fox Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 5 yrs. 3 mo.  Birthday: 10/2013 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28378
   Current Location: Foster Care
Update: Oscar’s leg is doing better, he is getting around more comfortably, his foster family doesn’t believe it needs amputation, he is having another veterinary consult... things are looking up for Oscar!

Oscar is a dog that was apparently hit by a car in October, and sat at the shelter untreated for more than a month. We are getting him into our vets to see what is the damage to his leg... after all this time it is likely to need to be amputated, we'll see!

He's a cute smaller medium sized fellow, lots of spots and dots.... more soon after his trip to the vet!

As suspected, Oscar has badly broken bones, that have healed improperly. The injury could have been older than just before coming to the shelter....

We have learned that Oscar is neutered, and dog friendly... and we think okay with cats too... he’ll need the leg amputated, as soon as he’s good and healthy, though he is used to holding it up, he gets around fine that way, but has some discomfort - without the leg, that will be gone.

   Name: ANGEL

   Breed: Chihuahua Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 13 yrs. 2 mo.  Birthday: 11/2005
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28336
   Current Location: Foster Care
This lovely little girl is such an easy-going gal. Angel was surrendered after her people lost their home in Camp Fires. She came in with the 4 cats she lived with.

Angel is a very easy going, quiet Chihuahua, she fine with other dogs, and most all people once she knows them, she just needs to be given a bit of time to observe, sit next to.... She sleeps on the bed, when cold, under the covers, she burrows and sleeps through the night. She is house trained, eats well once she isn't nervous in the new environment - looks up at you with her big round eyes... just a lovely girl - who's world turned upside down... and burned.

She is nervous around new people and can get a bit snappy if someone she doesn't know goes to pick her up - but it is short lived, she is really a very docile and charming companion, good on walks and in the car, with cats and other dogs, respectful kids too.

   Name: TITAN

   Breed: Rottweiler - Doberman Pinscher Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 4 yrs. 9 mo.  Birthday: 4/2014 (est)
   Weight: Large (60 - 90 pounds)
   Referral placement - adoption assisted by Milo.

   Milo ID: 28333
   Current Location: Foster Care
Titan is a very handsome Doberman/Rottweiler and is looking for a new home. He would love a place with room to roam and massive amounts of exercise.

He LOVES to chase sticks and rubber toys. We had him for 3 years on 20 acres of forest, where he was an excellent watchdog. Now that we live and work in town, we find he can't be left outdoors. Our yard is too small and he escapes within minutes to roam the neighborhood, scaring the postal worker.

Titan is not to be trusted around children. He dislikes affection and does not like people to bring their face near his. He is fine around cats, chickens and other pets.

His best talent is leaping and catching things in mid-air - he's quite gorgeous to watch and will play for hours. He also loves to swim, especially if it involves fetching.

   Name: JAX

   Breed: Great Pyrenees
   Gender: Male
   Age: 10 mos.  Birthday: 3/2018
   Weight: Extra-Large (over 90 pounds)
   Adoption Pending!
   Milo ID: 28323
   Current Location: Foster Care
Jax is a gentle giant! He is a sweet boy who walks well on leash. He loves to snuggle. He knows basic commands, but could use some training and socialization. He would be a great family dog, and would need a family who's is not out of the house much. Come meet this big sweet boy.

Great Pyrenees breeds are described as: "In nature, the Great Pyrenees is confident, gentle (especially with children), and loyal. While territorial and protective of its flock or family when necessary, its general demeanor is of composure and patience and loyalty. It is a strong willed, independent and reserved breed. It is also attentive, quite fearless and loyal to its duties. The Great Pyrenees' size makes it an imposing guardian. A dog of this breed will patrol its perimeter and may wander away if left off its leash in an unenclosed space. The Great Pyrenees protects its flock by barking, and being nocturnal, tends to bark at night unless trained against such behavior.

The Great Pyrenees can be slow to learn new commands, slow to obey, and somewhat stubborn to train."

$600 adoption fee. Taking care of big dogs can be expensive, as is spaying/ neutering and all the rest!

   Name: SCOOTER

   Breed: Terrier - Spaniel Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 1 yr. 4 mo.  Birthday: 9/2017 (est)
   Weight: Small (less than 30 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28321
   Current Location: Foster Care
Scooter and his brother Al are acclimating to their new surroundings. They are looking for a loving home to give them the love they deserve.

FOSTER NOTES: "Scooter has a sweet disposition and is a great lap dog. He is great with kids, especially girls. He is affectionate and playful (especially with kids) and is not a fussy eater.

Scooter needs basic training - potty training, leash training, crate training, etc. He has separation anxiety. Hoarder dogs have a certain amount of separation anxiety because of lack of socialization in their early days.

Scooter’s ideal home is with a family who can work with his separation anxiety and basic training needs. A home with kids and possibly a yard would make him very happy."

   Name: RUTHIE

   Breed: Collie - Australian Shepherd Mix
   Gender: Female
   Age: 7 yrs. 8 mo.  Birthday: 5/2011 (est)
   Weight: Medium (30 - 60 pounds)
   Milo ID: 28308
   Current Location: Foster Care
Meet Ruthie!

Ruthie likes all people. She is very social and loves to cuddle but she dislikes rough housing, fighting, or erratic behavior in people. Ruthie craves a quiet and calm household with no drama.

Ruthie is house broken, she knows some commands and is good at learning new commands.

Ruthie loves to go hiking and to off leash parks. She goes to Pt Isabel (an open dog park) and she is off leash and does great. She goes backpacking too and has her own pack she can carry.

Ruthie dislikes cats. She lives with a cat and she is trained to leave the cat alone but this can be a frustrating situation for her so we recommend no cats in the household.

Small children are too much for Ruthie so there should be no children under 14 in the household. If you are planning to have children in the future (or grandchildren) then Ruthie is NOT the dog for you.

She gets along with other dogs but has her boundaries and needs other dogs to respect them. She’s currently fostered with 2 Chihuahuas and does great with them. Ruthie has gone on group dog walks many times, and lived with other dogs including a husky and other small dogs.

She has extreme resource guarding issues for toys and high value treats. Therefore, her new family would need to understand how to manage this.

Our ideal home for Ruthie would be a quiet and calm household. Somewhere where she has a large yard or property. No small children and no plans to have children or grandchildren. She’d be happiest where the person or people are active and like to hike or run. The foster thinks she would do best with no other dogs or other dogs that are not alpha but also thinks she could adapt to most other dogs just fine.

Ruthie is in foster care – here’s how to meet a dog in foster: Please fill out our online application (http://milofoundation.org/aboutadopting.cfm), email it to us with the animals name and Milo number in the subject line. We will review your application and add you to our database. If everything looks like a good fit, we will ask the foster to contact you for a meet and greet. *NOTE: our system can only open Word documents or PDFs

Adoption fee: $400.

   Breed: Labrador Retriever - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Gender: Male
   Age: 5 yrs. 1 mo.  Birthday: 12/2013

   Milo ID: 28289

Looking for a family that has lots of time to play with me and take me on adventures! I am high energy and very fit!! I love hiking and running, I also love playing fetch in the backyard! I can play ball for hours!!!! I'm good with most other dogs and I'm living with multiple other pups right now and doing just fine. But I'm not really interested in playing with other dogs but I can with the right dog. I'd much rather play with you!! Or my ball!! Preferably both!!

With plenty of exercise I settle very well in the house and I like to just rest quietly near wherever my people are especially if you like to snuggle on the couch and watch a movie. I am crate trained and potty trained, I don't mind being left at home while you go to work but could easily come with you if you like! My only set back is I have a high prey drive so I can't live with cats or small animals ( though I am now doing well with the chickens in the backyard as long as they are in their run). I really want to please my family, both dogs and people, so I can adjust to most homes.

If you would like a active dog to go on walks, hikes, camping, swimming in the lake but also like to sit at home and watch a movie at night and just snuggle I'm your man! Please feel free to reach out to my foster mom who has taught me most of my tricks.... Carol 5103341108 She can set up a meeting or you can come to one of our adoption events and meet me in person! Look forward to it... King

Both abandoned and rescued together, Kava and Saviore Faire have became bonded and would love to go home with each other!

While in a foster home Kava is more confident/ less afraid and is very affectionate to her foster mom's. With strangers she can be shut down and less affectionate so she will need time to get to know you.
