SHYLA Shyla is at the Milo Sanctuary and would LOVE a home!

Shyla is a beautiful sable-black Labrador retriever and hound mix. She is very smart. She is very active and athletic. Best as an only dog in the home. On leash she is a dream, though may take a little bit initially to get her yah-yahs out since not a lt of walks happen at the Sanctuary. Once established, if you let her know you want her to walk at your side, she will do so without pulling. This is always a good idea, reminding her who the pack leader is.

Shyla loves off-leash romps and stays close by, running ahead, then running back to check in with you. Returns to you with a sharp whistle, or a loud clap while calling her name. She knows how to sit.

She’s smart and could easily be trained. She WANTS to please. Very friendly with people. A little reactive behind a barrier like a fence. Loves to walk and play. No problems being bathed or brushed. Awesome dog in general. Needs some work with other dogs and needs a dog proof yard. Affectionate, sweet, dog! Ready for her forever home. Treat motivated.

Previous foster notes:"Shyla is doing well. She sleeps in home every day, very well house broken. She is becoming a good watch dog. Has issues with our other dog. A lot of competition. I think they both are type "A". She does fairly well on a lead unless distracted by a critter. Around the yard she is constantly at heel when I'm doing chores. Loves to be brushed, no issues taking baths. Very loving pet. You have to keep an eye on her, very strong and really quick! She is learning sit leave it, heel. Likes to bark. We use a slow feed bowl, as she likes to gulp her food down."

*Foster Notes* 10/25/15 "She likes to play with other dogs but will bark at first. She is really playful and likes to chase ball."

If interested in this sweet lady please email us at sanctuary@milofoundation.org

Featured Critter: SOPHIE
Breed: Springer Spaniel - Coonhound Mix
Gender: Female   Age: 4 yrs. 8 mo. (est)
Milo ID: 28218   Current Location: Sanctuary
SOPHI Sophi is very intelligent and eager to learn and please. Sophie is fabulous with other dogs in a play group setting, she LOVES to run around - and is fine with a pack. But if she knows there are cats nearby or other critters to hunt - her recall goes to the wind! She is a hunting dog through and through, a country dog. She is a "frustrated greeter" and gets reactive when she is on a leash and sees another dog but is very much dog friendly. She will benefit from management and conditioning for the separation anxiety, mental stimulation, and intensive training for her leash behavior - or a home where she does not lead her life on leash - she actually lives and plays with an ever changing group of dogs and is always in the middle of the fun, but not the squabbles. .

**FOSTER NOTES: Sophie is an extremely lovable and loving dog. She's fantastic with our 3 children and walks happily on leash. She's still learning how to live in a house but is making steady progress.

She will happily make herself comfortable cuddled up with you on a couch or a bed. While she does chase our cats a bit, she can be redirected. She's eager to please and wants to be close to her humans all the time.

She isn't especially interested in treats and is motivated primarily by affection. She does have separation anxiety and has engaged in some destructive behaviors when left on her own, even for only an hour or so, * but if she is in a yard with buddy dogs she is fine!!

This is a lovely dog for rural living with a family to love her she will give oodles of Love back! email sanctuary@milofoundation.org to learn more or to make arrangements to meet this smiley, beguiling, ~43 pound girl!

Featured Critter: COWBOY LOU
Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog - American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
Gender: Male   Age: 5 yrs. 7 mo. (est)
Milo ID: 28356   Current Location: MPR
COWBOY LOU Cowboy Lou was rescued from a Chico shelter to make room for all the incoming fire victims. He's a big goofball and his high energy makes him the life of the party. However, Cowboy Lou does have a high prey drive and is not cat- or dog-friendly, so these factors will be considered when considering his adopters.

Cowboy Lou would do best in an active household with kids over the age of 14. He needs people that can devote time and energy to training and exercise. He is a jumper, so a large enclosed yard is a must. If you think you're the right family for this party animal, come meet Cowboy Lou today!

Featured Critter: BLUE
Breed: Rottweiler
Gender: Male   Age: 4 yrs. 9 mo. (est)
Milo ID: 28079   Current Location: Sanctuary
BLUE Big Blue! Baby, Blue and Bubba are BIG, sweet Rotties!! Milo took them in after their person passed away. Well (too well) fed, and very loved dogs, great companions who get along really well, happy siblings!

Blue is housetrained, pulls a bit on leash initially but with more exercise and routine he’ll settle some, as well some training and perhaps a corrective harness or Halti would help!

At our Sanctuary for a break along with sister Baby and brother Bubba!

These are sweet dogs who would so love to have a home with a big yard and folks who loves them!

Discounted adoption of $500 for two of them together - or all three!!

Featured Critter: THOR
Breed: Akbash
Gender: Male   Age: 7 yrs. 3 mo. (est)
Milo ID: 24286   Current Location: Sanctuary
THOR Thor is looking for a RURAL home. He can live with another dog, he currently lives with a food guarding Aussie mix female at our Sanctuary, but would not take to a lot of other dogs coming and going in his space, nor a home that is a social epicenter particularly with a lot of male strangers showing up.

This beautiful boy was initially adopted to a loving family, but it became clear that he really would do best in a rural setting, which is to be expected for the breed. He bonded quickly and deeply to his family, which included children, cats and even one small dog. He slept in their room at night and loved being with them.

Much like Great Pyrenees, Akbash were bred to protect flocks from predators and are known for their gentle temperaments with all that they were raised to be included in their "family flock", but also their bravery when protecting them from a perceived threat. While in his first family Thor never showed any aggression to any PEOPLE outside of his family unit, all dogs encountered on walks around "his" neighborhood, or living in adjoining yards were viewed as wolves outside the door. Because they lived in the city, the family had difficulty even taking him for walks because of this. They were both gone for long hrs, and although he had access to a yard he would get restless and bark from stress. He does not do this here at the sanctuary and likely would not in a home where he had more time with his people and was not stressed by his surroundings.

Thor is a wonderful dog, who is looking for a loving home that will provide him with the rural property that he longs for, without feeling the constant need to keep away unknown dogs. This behavior did not start until he had established who his family was and what animals were included in the circle. In a city environment the barriers/fences/leashes, coupled with his natural inner drive to patrol his property and keep his family safe did not make for a good combination. Thor is a loyal, loving and fantastic dog who is looking for his place in the world. We are looking for a home for him in the country, where he can sleep wherever - outside is fine as long as he has good shelter, good food etc. and be part of a family on some level, but also have room to roam and let down his guard. We do want to stress that Thor has shown strong aggression towards other dogs, but with proper introductions to smaller dogs he can be fine but not with a lot of canine coming and goings, if he is guarding that includes from dogs in any proper guardians mind. At this point we feel that Thor would need a home where he does not have neighboring dogs near by.

Thor showed no prey drive towards the livestock here at the sanctuary and after being returned from the first family then spent some time in a foster home where he did not show a prey drive towards their chickens or sheep. He was not allowed free access to them for safety reasons, but he showed no interest whatsoever in the chickens insi
