Meet PONO

Thank you for considering adoption of a Milo Foundation Sanctuary dog. Our Sanctuary is where our rescued dogs who have had difficulty in a home in the past, have behavioral issues, or too much energy, or for some, aggression issues with other dogs, or intense stranger danger that make them more difficult to safely and happily live in urban environments. These are not beginner dogs or for the most part nor are they for families with children. IF you are looking for an easy dog to add to your family, we suggest looking at the dogs at our Adoption Center, Milo Pt Richmond. BUT, if you can offer a safe and nurturing home to a dog with some behavioral "quirks" please do send an application today. Thank you.

Pono is an amazing dog! He is a sweet and cuddly, smart and is learning new things quickly. He wants to be a good dog and responds very well to verbal cues. Just a short "no and he stops his behavior and looks at you, he is teat motivated. He is energetic but mellow inside the house and really loves to cuddle. He is very well behaved and hasn't chewed anything in the house. He is running free during the day and sleeps in his crate at night. He is house-trained, walks nicely on a leash and off-leash, can sit, lie down, wait for his meal, and comes when called. He can be left alone in his crate for 3-4 hours (MAX). He loves car rides and is always so happy to jump in and go for hikes. On walks he sticks with you and doesn't show prey drive.

He is dog-friendly and loves to play with other dogs when in an outdoor neutral zone. He has many dog friends up at our Sanctuary which is outdoors.

He is very affectionate and loves to hang out with me and my husband. When outside (even in the yard) he is friendly to people, but inside the house he is very protective. Dog-savvy people will know how to guide him to be a better host. He showed tendency to guard his food with other dogs, feeding separately is best. He CANNOT live with any small animals or other dogs inside a home.

He has been in my house just for a week and made such an amazing progress! This sweetheart can't wait to be adopted!

Pono is a very energetic, athletic and playful dog who loves to chase a ball! He is tremendously smart and very quick to learn, excellent on a leash, fantastic with other dogs and friendly when out in neutral places. He should not live with other dogs. He has some significant trust issues, so he is very protective of his house, people and property when it comes to anyone not in his inner circle. The ideal household would be with active, dog focused adults who have large-dog experience. He is sweet and affectionate with a lot of love to give. Pono is kid friendly out and about but can not be a family dog with kids in the home due to his over protective tendencies! He will need a human pal with lots of dog experience and no other kids or animals in the home
