Arlo was saved because of his amazing personality, and because adopters often overlook all black dogs in shelters....Arlo's sweet and calm nature shines through when you meet him. He gets along well with dogs, cats and children. The perfect family companion!

* Cause of eye issues:
* Has the foster seen a regular vet?
Appointment on: (12/22/2016)
* What was the vet's findings?
Calm and easy-going patient. Arlo may have corneal edema
, which would be a secondary symptom to inflammation of his immune system as a primary. The vet didn't think it was due to hepatitis because his liver values are OK. He's thinking it may be corrected with topical steroids
So far Arlo is a DOLL. Totally cool, chills on the couch with you. Can get around rather well. Doesn't realize with his size, he's not quite a 'lap dog' but that does NOT stop him. LOVES to be with you.
