Featured Critter: TIGGER

Breed: Domestic Short Hair   -  Gender: Male
Age: 9 yrs. 2 mo., Milo ID: 28812
Current Location: MPR

TIGGER Tigger has warmed up to the changes and he is a very sweet though particular cat. He is quite the couch potato.He really enjoys having the top of his head slowly scratched and likes sniffing people's noses. He is sensitive to having his lower back petted and would prefer head rubs. When sitting in a calm person's lap, he also enjoys having the area under his chin scratched.

Here some notes from one of our awesome cat volunteers who is a big fan of Tigger: "*Tigger is a big orange cat with a heart of gold and a big bright presence. He is 9 yrs. of age and loves to jump up to hang out on top of the highest cat tree to look down, often surprising visitors when they look up. He seems quite tickled about it. He has a unique charm with his gentle ways seem to help the other cats feel calm. If older cats tug on your heart strings Tigger may be just the one for you. Once he is in a loving home he can hopefully lose a bit of weight and learn to dance the rumba."

Tigger's previous home told us that he is quiet and calm but has his playful moments as well. Tigger loves people and can be a lap cat but he doesn’t like to be picked up. We were told he tolerates dogs. Tigger gets along well with other cats in our group room here at Milo, though he can be selective of his feline friends at first. He can get overstimulated easily so would do best in a home with no children and a cat savvy adopter!

Featured Critter: ANGEL

Breed: Chihuahua Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 13 yrs. 10 mo., Milo ID: 28336
Current Location: Foster

ANGEL CHI Angel was surrendered to us after her people lost their home in the Camp Fire. Unfortunately, she's a bit shell-shocked from all she's experienced and is still trying to adjust to her new world.

Angel is the perfect little lap companion once she gets comfortable. She's nervous when meeting new people and can sometimes be snappy if someone tries to pick her up before she's ready, but it's a short-lived habit that quickly fades to reveal the little love bug hiding underneath. Once Angel bonds with you, she's yours forever. She'll spend her days dozing on your lap and her nights burrowing under the covers to keep you extra warm.

Angel is house-trained and good on leash/in the car. She is cat- and dog-friendly and also good with kids. She loves walks, trips to the park, and will even play fetch!

If you think you're the right family for Angel, come meet her today!

Featured Critter: DAISY DOTTS

Breed: Australian Cattle Dog - Basset Hound Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 8 yrs. 7 mo. (est), Milo ID: 26585
Current Location: Sanctuary

DAISY DOTTS 7/9/18 Foster notes: "Daisy is a very loving and gentle dog! I didn’t see any signs of aggression whatsoever, however she is very shy and timid. From what I understand, Daisy was surrendered to Milo and since being at the shelter she’s been having a really hard time and her anxiety has gotten worse. After a few days with us, Daisy’s personality shined! Happy wags in the morning and cuddles all night. All Daisy needs from someone is a little patience to help build her confidence.

She is excellent in her kennel - when overly nervous it’s her safe space. She will go in without hesitation when asked. She isn’t difficult to walk, but there have been a couple times where she’s been spooked and began to pull. This behavior was easily corrected. Very quiet! Not a single bark for the time we had her. Other than a few nervous shakes at first, she had no issues in the car or while bathing her.

We do not have dogs or cats living with us so I cannot say whether she’s good with other animals. During walks, she seemed to ignore the dogs we pass by and no reaction when approached by another dog.

I think the ideal place for Daisy would be a home with no children in a quiet location. Overall such a great dog!"


*Surrender Notes* 6/8/18 "Daisy can be very sweet and affectionate, especially with me, and she behaves herself when I am with her.

Daisy has separation anxiety but if I need to leave the house, she does very well when left in her pen. She willingly goes in, settles and it is like a safe spot for her.

I have trained the dogs to eat in their own spots and to wait patiently for the food, which keeps any food aggression from happening.

Daisy can have some leash aggression. She walks well on the leash and when she walks on my side by herself, she responds to my corrections, especially if I catch her before she escalates.

Ideally, Daisy would be an only pet. She gets along with my other dog, but she can be territorial with her special places or with toys. She is not well socialized with children and is NOT good with cats. I recommend a home with someone who works from home and does not have children or cats."

Featured Critter: BEAR

Breed: Great Dane - Border Collie Mix  -  Gender: Male
Age: 6 yrs. 3 mo. (est), Milo ID: 23612
Current Location: Foster

FONZY BEAR Bear is a beautiful, very sweet and loving dog with lots of energy. He has great house manners, is potty trained, can be left alone for several hours. He doesn’t need to be crated. Since he wasn’t properly socialized in his previous home he initially is cautious with strangers but as soon as he realizes that visitors are no threat he loves having people around. He is kid friendly but due to his size and strength children should be 12 or older. He loves to play fetch and knows all the basic commands and then some.

City life scares him. Therefore he needs a more rural home with lots of space to roam. Bear is very excitable and we are still working on loose leash walking. He does get along well with the other dog in his foster home, but does not do well with encountering other dogs. So no dog parks for him. He needs slow introduction with other dogs and due to his excitability can be overwhelming. When Bear is relaxed he is a fast learner, but his excitement often gets in the way. Bear is looking for a family that can help him to relax and trust, that can give him the exercise he needs and has the patience to teach him in a calm and loving way that the world is a safe place. No cats or other small animals for Bear.

Featured Critter: KITTY

Breed: Chihuahua - Smooth Fox Terrier Mix  -  Gender: Female
Age: 5 yrs. 2 mo. (est), Milo ID: 23998
Current Location: Sanctuary

MISS KITTY Sanctuary Update: Miss Kitty is spending time with us at the sanctuary in Willits while she waits for a family. She truly is lovely in so many ways, but she does have difficulty with nipping out of fear when touched in a way that makes her feel scared or restrained, and it can be difficult at times to determine what level of handling will make her feel that way. This would explain the difficulties she had with children that are mentioned in her original bio below. Miss Kitty would do best in a quiet and adult home with someone who would be patient with her while helping her to let down her guard and realize that you are not going to hurt her. There is a BB pellet under her skin, so she has clearly had a hard time in her past, and may not have been handled consistently and kindly during socialization as a pup, but we have definitely seen her confidence grow with us and we are very proud of her! She LOVES toys and playing fetch and is never outwardly aggressive towards anyone she meets, but she would not want for them to try to pick her up etc right away. Even for those that know and love her, scooping her up still has to be done in a certain way in order to not scare her. In an adult, loving and predictable home we feel that she will continue to blossom and that her confidence with handling will grow, but it will take patience and understanding that she may get snappy if spooked. She is a very cute little girl and we know the right home for her is out there!

Original Bio: Our sweet female Chi mix is coming back to Milo due to difficulties with the children in her previous home. Because of her experience there, we've learned that Miss Kitty is not best suited to a home with kids. However, she gets along well with cats and dogs as long as she is corrected when she plays too rough (needs reminders about boundaries).

Outside of her quirks, Miss Kitty is a great little dog. She walks well on a leash, is crate-trained and housebroken, and loves to play fetch. In addition, she meets/greets other dogs well and is not aggressive toward strangers. Miss Kitty is a little firecracker who will make a great pet in the right home.
