Arlo came to us from a Pet Hotel, where we got word that he like many dogs are in the Algarve, was abandoned there by his family after they had to move away. He came to us with an incredibly sweet, heart, but since he has acknowledged that he was abandoned, he now struggles to trust or be himself around any random human.
If you take the time to get to know him and build a relationship out of trust, he will be among the most polite dogs you will meet. He sits and lies down on command, but his occasional snap is sparked by his lack of faith in people. We have already seen that with some volunteers and staff, Arlo has come to love and respect them when they dedicate enough time to him, and he would happily do the same to you if he gave him the time of day. All this dog needs is stability and a family that he knows will love him unconditionally – only then will you see how much of a darling he can be.
