Meet Arlo

Arlo! Arlo is looking for his match, he is such a sweet dog. Here is what we are looking for for him!

ARLO! Arlo is a mix breed dog! German Shepherd with Australian Shepherd and a whole bunch of other breeds. He is around 67 lbs. and 3 yrs. old.

Please read about Arlo (below) and if you feel you are a good match for him and want to meet him, complete an application found on our website.

This is what his foster home has found:
He would love a dog friend to play and hang out with - he does best with a tolerant, well socialized and playful dogs,
We found he likes one on one dog play so dog parks are too much for him,
He will need a fenced yard to play in,
Arlo does well on leash but will pull at the beginning and a front clip harness works best with him,
He does very well going for car rides and is up for any adventure,
He likes his crate but will bark when he needs to go outside
He is house trained but he is currently let out for potty breaks often.
He loves dog beds. He knows sit and down.
He has been a running buddy but we feel that this leads to overstimulation if he runs around traffic and in busy neighborhoods. He is better suited for trails or quiet walks.

We think Arlo did not have much experience in a home prior to rescue.

We are looking for a person(s) who are experienced with dogs and can continue his training (we are working on staying calm and building his confidence).
Have a fenced backyard.
Has a playful, well socialized dog to play with and learn from.
Has a calm household.
A person who has the time, experience and inclination to work on confidence building and being a happy and calm dog (which is what his foster home sees).

No cats or young children at this time.

Arlo is up to date on his vaccines, neutered, heartworm tested had flea treatment, had dewormer and is microchipped. His adoption fee is $350.
