5 years, Male, Large Mixed Breed (Lab size)
Arlo is a very timid and shy dog that needs a very patient home to take them on. When Arlo arrived they were traumatized by the transport and hid away from us in fear.
Arlo is a dog that will require time and patience to come out of their shell and learn to ‘be a dog’. They are a project but the rewards from adopting a dog like Arlo outweigh the struggles they may have at the beginning.
Arlo has only wagged his tail at one staff member in the rescue but has never loved a human before. When taking on a dog like Arlo you become their whole world, they finally learn to trust humans and learn that not all humans are scary.
Arlo cannot currently be touched at the rescue and so has never known a kind hand. The day that you can touch Arlo will be an incredibly special moment for you both…
Arlo is not currently lead trained as they are so frightened (although wearing a trailing line he will spook if it is picked up). Staff will advise you on how to teach them to walk on a lead when they are ready.
