Hi, I'm Arlo! I'm a goofy guy and love to hang out and get scratched. I follow my foster mom around. She calls me "sweet boy" all the time. She had to teach me how to do the stairs but now I am really good going up and down.
I'm a big guy, tall and kinda lean right now, and my foster says I need to gain a little bit of weight. I love my foster sister and try to get her to play with me! She's older and smaller than me, around 11 years and only 15 lbs., but we're friends and I still love her even when she gets feisty. I'm respectful of her and we even share the dog bed sometimes!
And hey -- I really like the dog up the street! We get to play sometimes! I also love my new rubber ball, and may really learn to like toys.
I'm also very calm in the house. I'm new to the leash so you'll have to help me get better at that. I'm a bit hesitant around strangers, so slow introduction is best. I love treats, and I will take them from strangers, but I might bark at them sometimes, too. I want to say hi to all dogs we see when walking. But, I've only interacted with a few on leash.
I'd love to have an active forever home with a big yard so I can sniff.
