My story

HOW TO ADOPT: This dog is available for adoption by appointment. To schedule a time to meet this dog, please contact ARL-Adoption@arl-iowa.org.



---



- Loves giving lots of kisses and enjoys treats



- Interested in squeaky toys



- Enjoys sleeping in bed with his foster family at night



- Has been doing very well with his foster family's dogs



- Walks nicely on a leash and does OK in a crate



- Has done well with the children in his foster home but may be happiest in a household that's more calm



- Can be shy and tentative at first, so he would love a family who will help him continue to build confidence



- Has shown the potential for separation anxiety in the shelter environment, but has been doing very well in his foster home (more info at ARL)



The ARL's shelter software requires that we choose a primary breed for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most dogs we are only guessing at primary breed. We get to know each dog as an individual and do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not breed label.
