A Male Labrador-x presently Available For Adoption

UPDATE:   Hey Arlo here and take a look at me now.  After a few weeks with my pals at *FIC, I am a changed dog.  I have learned that in order for a walk to be fun, I don't have to be dragging a human.  I also understand that people will be just as happy to meet me without jumping on them.  All that in a few short weeks and Virginie Forest, Alain Bonneau, and their students believe that the sky's the limit for me.  The more you teach me the happier I will be.  No doubt about it, I'm on the right path.  So, now all I need is an active family who will continue to work with me.  Take a look at a few videos of me doing my thing; I am very proud of what I have accomplished.

My name is Arlo and I am one happy fellow right now – apparently, I’ll be going to a family who actually wants a dog.   I was an unclaimed stray.  Take a look at the photo of the thick, heavy chain that was around my neck when I was found.  Since I only speak “dog” I can’t confirm that I was one of those dogs that spent most of his life tied to a chain but the evidence certainly points in that direction.  There is truly no justification for humans to chain dogs up outside “out of sight, out of mind”.  No dog deserves to be banished to a life of loneliness like a lawn ornament that serves no purpose.  First thing that happened when I arrived was Animatch slapped on a nice new collar!  I haven’t had too much attention in my life, so we will need to work on my manners – nothing obedience training can’t fix.  I may be all grown up but I am still a puppy at heart and I’m depending on you for guidance and support.  I really want to be the greatest dog I can be.  Being part Lab, means that I have never met a stranger and enjoy enthusiastic greetings.  I will require plenty of exercise; I hear that Labs are great at retrieving a ball, so let’s give it a try.  I know I am asking a lot, but I think it’s a fair bargain for a lifetime of friendship.  So, if you think that I’m your guy, hurry on up and fill in the Adoption Form. 

Please share photos of Arlo with your friends

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
