Available Dog - Arlo

Arlo 21

Hi, I’m Arlo.  I’m so grateful for NRGRR for saving me.   My foster mom has 3 dogs and I get along well with them.  I like to play with my foster brothers and sister and I also love to play ball.  I don’t last long, as I get tired quickly, but I absolutely love walks and car rides.    

I love to lounge in the sun, be with my humans and snuggle up next to your feet while you are watching TV.  My foster calls me the love bug.  I know all of my manners, except once in awhile when I get too excited, I may jump once.  Once I am reminded, I stop right away.  I smile a lot and I’m just so happy.

Reminder for approved applicants - to apply for one or more available dogs, contact your applications advisor. Don't know who your advisor is? Email

   Very sweet, happy boy

Interaction with dogs:


Gets along with other dogs.  Would do best in a home with another dog to play with.

Wants to chase cats. Not recommended.

Child requirements:


Has not been around them while in foster.  Small children may be knocked over as he’s a big boy.

Fence requirements:


Fence would be best. 

General activity level:


Mild to low. He loves to play, but only for a short time and then is ready to relax.

Work schedule best suited for:


Someone who’s home or has a dog walker come mid-day.

Leash manners:


Very excited at first; with gentle correction does well on a leash.

When excited, he wants to jump.  He knows not to and corrects easily when he forgets.  Would do best with someone with good leadership skills.
