   Name: MAGGIE
   Breed: Maltese Mix
   Milo ID: 22312    Adopted: 1/2017
MOPSY now MAGGIEHello and Happy Holidays! I have been reflecting on what I am thankful for lately and I just felt like I wanted to update you on our pup and let you know how grateful we are for her. When we adopted Maggie (formerly Mopsy) it was with the knowledge that she is a sick puppy with a stage 6 heart murmur. I always make it a point to adopt one special needs dog at a time, to give them the home they deserve, for as long as they may live. When we visited our regular vet, he said she was a sick little girl, who had approximately 6 months to live. We decided to give her the absolute best 6 months of her life and she became my constant companion and shadow. After a rough start (she bit both my husband and son) she settled in and only bit people who were wearing work boots. After about 6 months of working with her to gain confidence and feel secure, she hasn't bitten anyone since, even when startled or feeling threatened. We are now 3 years later and she is beating the odds. She is still a sassy, funny, affectionate and amazing little dog. I can't imagine the last 3 years without this little Angel. In a traditional shelter my little sweetie would have been euthanized long before she could have been adopted. She was with you guys for 15 months before I met her. I can't imagine my life without her and I just want to thank you guys so much for what you do. I will forever adopt any and all of my dogs from you guys. You are absolutely amazing and I cannot thank you enough for being Angels that rescue Angels. I have included some photos of my sweet Maggie, who is currently snuggling next to me and hopping up every once in awhile to give me a kiss. Thank you thank you thank you!! Vanessa

   Name: SHADOW
   Breed: Newfoundland Dog - Flat-coated Retriever Mix
   Milo ID: 23184    Adopted: 7/2016
SHADOW and SPIDER I met Shadow when I was looking for a dog, but didn't immediately consider him - he was so depressed, and while amenable to people, was not particularly interested. It wasn't until he was placed in a foster home and I re-met him at a Bark Around the Block event in Berkeley, that I saw who he could be. It has been wonderful to see Shadow's personality develop over the last few years. Some things have stayed the same - he prefers sleeping outdoors, except in the coldest weather, and loves to dig beds for himself. Other things have changed. He has morphed from an affable, but solitary soul to one who sleeps on the bed and nudges for massage and pets. Perhaps best, we moved to Colorado last summer, and he now lives on a 25-acre property, where he can indulge his penchant for drive-by sniffing to his heart's content and nap in the shade of the pines. His brother Spider was adopted by a couple who ended up living about 6 blocks away in Richmond, so we were able to meet up and let the boys reconnect occasionally. They really seemed to enjoy their short periods of contact, and we enjoyed comparing notes on the two dogs. Shadow was about 8 when we adopted him. He is getting more arthritic lately, and getting around has become harder. I console myself with the idea that we have been able to give him a good second life, and thank the Milo Organization for introducing us.

MAMA NAOMI PUPS FOUR - JAMES now CRUZHi Milo Staff, I just wanted to give you all a HUGE thank you for bringing Cruz into our lives! Cruz (formerly James of Naomi's litter) is an incredible puppy and has brightened our lives in so many ways. He is intelligent, athletic, mellow tempered, and the biggest cuddler. Cruz is already an ingrained part of our family - we truly hit the jack pot! We recently connected with his sister, Wren, who we now have been able to schedule play dates with!

   Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
   Milo ID: 24884    Adopted: 4/2017
CHUBBY PITSHi everyone at Milo, I just wanted to update you on our biggest baby pit bull boy Zeus. We adopted him from Milo almost 2yrs ago and since then he has blessed us with so much love. We adore him more than we ever could have imagined. Thanks to you guys, he was the missing link to our family and we found him! Zeus loves sleeping in the middle of us, chewing bones, playing at the dog park and just being a complete cuddle monster. Thank you for all that you do on the daily to connect people with these magical dogs. They lower our stress levels and give us something to look forward to every day :)

   Name: STEPHEN now ROCCO
   Breed: Australian Shepherd - Australian Cattle Dog Mix
   Milo ID: 23468    Adopted: 5/2016
WARRIORS PUP 1Rocco has been a dream since he entered our lives 3.5 years ago. He's the absolute sweetest boy who loves cuddles, beach days, and human snacks. We're also close friends with Rocco's brother, Bernie; they've spent many weekends together fighting over stuffed toys and chasing crows at Fort Funston. Thank you, Milo and team for our bundle of joy <3
