Arlo has the sweetest face with his big brown eyes and pink nose that doesn't match. There is something so adorable about it! Arlo is very upset being back at the shelter. He has a nervous habit of curling in a ball and sucking the tip of his tail like a child might do with its thumb. It is really heartbreaking. Arlo was previously adopted into a home with another dog, and they ended up being best friends. Unfortunately, there were also kids in the home and Arlo did not do well with them. This family tried to make it work for months but ultimately they had to give him back. Arlo loves to be loved. He wants to be a lap dog and if you sit down in a chair he will put his front paws up on you and give you (too many!) face kisses. Arlo is housebroken, and he does love going for walks. He is not super interested in toys, but he would be a fun jogging partner. Arlo is 4 years old and weighs around 60 pounds. He really needs to get out of the shelter where he is constantly stressed, so if you are not sure you can adopt Arlo, please consider fostering him and he can be relaxed and happy in his foster home.
