Available For Adoption!
Arlo is a handsome one year old Boxer/Shepherd mix. For a puppy, and a former stray, he is amazingly well behaved and friendly. Arlo is house trained and gets along with his foster mom's dogs and cat. He walks well on a leash, but when he sees other dogs he wants to play with them and is a little hard to control. He is well behaved in the car.
When he first came to the rescue he was a little shy and a bit perplexed about being an indoor dog. But in his foster home he is learning about the benefits of human friends (cookies, belly rubs, romping in the yard). He loves to go for walks and to play with toys, especially if they squeak. He also loves to chew his foster mom's shoes - we are working on that. Arlo weighs about 50 pounds and is a pretty tan color with darker markings around the face and eyes. One of his ears is always up, the other is always down which gives him a handsome rakish look. Arlo has been neutered and is currently under-going treatment for heart-worm. He will not be adopted out until his heart-worm is negative, but we are accepting and processing applications.
This pup is level-headed and smart and will do well in an urban lifestyle. He needs someone who can be patient with him as he learns basic commands. If you're able to provide Arlo with a home he'll reward you with amazing loyalty and love.
