Arlo is the 1 year old Labrador Retriever mix born with Megaesophagus. He could win the award for best cuddler ever. He’s a smart little guy that knows his basic commands, but needs some more training walking nicely on a leash. Arlo is a social pup who loves people, kids, cats, dogs, car rides, cuddling, balls and playing fetch. To put it very simply, ARLO IS A ROCKSTAR!
Arlo was born with the congenital condition Megaesophagus. He eats through a permanent, external, low-profile feeding tube implanted in his abdomen(see photo). He has adapted to this way of eating and is healthy and thriving. Arlo will be fed this way for his entire life.
Megaesophagus doesn’t slow Arlo down one bit. He’s still an active dog that can run and play like any other dog. With Arlo’s excellent personality and demeanor, he’d make a great therapy dog. He could do good work comforting children or adults, especially those with special needs similar to his own.
Arlo is neutered, fully vaccinated (including Rabies) and microchipped.
