Argo - A Petfinder Happy Tail

From Leslie of Raleigh, NC

My husband and I had decided that we wanted to adopt a Doberman or Doberman mix after buying our first house with a fenced yard. We also have two cats, nieces and nephews, other family members' dogs, and wanted a young, medium-sized, friendly dog that could adapt to quite a few situations. It seemed like a tall order but Petfinder was perfect for us to search for these specific characteristics to ensure we found a great match for us. After looking for a few weeks on Petfinder and meeting some local dogs, I stumbled across Argo (then, Arlo) in a Durham, NC county shelter. He looks like a dobie but is smaller than is typical and is super sweet, which is very typical for that breed - just the right combination. My husband and I both fell in love instantly when we met him. The shelter told us he was Heartworm positive and they were having difficulty finding him a home. We decided to take the chance on treating his heartworms. Two months later he has completed his treatments and is happily adjusting to life at home with us. We all love him so much (well, the cats may say love is a strong word) and feel we made the perfect decision to adopt our Argo. Thank you so much Petfinder.
