Arney is that  special kind of fur- baby who lets you know every single day how much he loves and appreciates you!  He absolutely loves to sit on your lap, he loves cuddling and he loves giving you kisses.  Arney is a Maltese mix, and he is 10 lbs of no shed, hypoallergenic (as hypo-allergenic as they come) cuteness.   
Arney was born with a condition know as "hydrocephalus," but you wouldn't know it by meeting him.  And while he will have this condition for the rest of his life, he doesn't need any medicine to treat his condition.
One of the symptoms of Arney's hydrocephalus condition is a diminished capacity to learn which takes the form of:
    -He cant be housebroken.   He is about 80% of the time good at using a wee wee pad.  
    -He can't go up or down more than one step. Any more than one he needs to be carried. 
    -Can't walk on a leash.  Gets panicky.   He doesn't care to go outside at all 
    -He is oblivious to other dogs and cats makes no animal to animal connection.
Beyond his learning deficit, he needs a fairly calm home because if he bumps his head hard or falls, it could lead to seizure or death. His ideal home will not have other dogs or kids. Cats are fine. Arney is happiest when he's sitting on your lap or cuddling on the bed. He's really sweet and special.  Arney is just a sweet, loveable little guy who has a "zest" for life that makes him the most adorable pup you will ever meet.  Arney is about 18 months old, but he is a pretty low-energy pup, and he does well with other low-energy dogs and is even okay with cats.  He is a bundle of fluffy love. 
You can adopt Arney by completing an adoption application at the web address shown below, and set up a meeting with this sweet guy.
