Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Arlo has the sweetest face with his big brown eyes and pink nose that doesn't match. There is something so adorable about it! Arlo is very upset being back at the shelter. He has a nervous habit of curling in a ball and sucking the tip of his tail like a child might do with its thumb. It is really heartbreaking. Arlo was previously adopted into a home with another dog, and they ended up being best friends. Unfortunately, there were also kids in the home and Arlo did not do well with them. This family tried to make it work for months but ultimately they had to give him back. Arlo loves to be loved. He wants to be a lap dog and if you sit down in a chair he will put his front paws up on you and give you (too many!) face kisses. Arlo is housebroken, and he does love going for walks. He is not super interested in toys, but he would be a fun jogging partner. Arlo is 4 years old and weighs around 60 pounds. He really needs to get out of the shelter where he is constantly stressed, so if you are not sure you can adopt Arlo, please consider fostering him and he can be relaxed and happy in his foster home.

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
