Meet Arlo

Arlo is a mix breed dog-German Shepherd with Australian Shepherd and a whole bunch of other breeds. Arlo is a 2 year old male mixed breed dog around 67 lbs.

Arlo was adopted a few months ago and it turned out to not be a good fit. We have a much better idea of what his perfect home looks like!

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:
Arlo does well on leash but will pull at the beginning.
He does very well on car rides.
He likes his crate but will bark when he needs to go outside.
He would love a dog friend to hang out (he does best with easy going well socialized dogs).
He is house trained. 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.

We are looking for a person(s) who:
Are experienced herding dog people.
Have a fenced backyard.
Have 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 him as).

No cats or young children at this time. He does best in a low key home.

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