Arlo: An active boy who loves the outdoors 

If you're interested in Arlo, please go to azfriends.org to fill out a consultation form and then head to the adoption center at 952 W. Melody Avenue in Gilbert.

Arlo is a 1-year-old, 55-pound, Catahoula hound dog. He is quite the handsome boy! One look into his eyes and you’ll be mesmerized!  Arlo is housetrained and will sleep on the foot of the bed — he’s no bed hog! He knows “sit” and is very easy to work with . Arlo loves to play fetch. He is an active boy so he’d enjoy hikes, long walks and probably even some jogging (if that’s what you’re into) when not too hot out.  Arlo is fine when he meets other dogs, but once he gets going, his rough and rowdy play style can be too much for most dogs. He doesn’t listen when other dogs tell him they’re done playing. No dog parks for him!  For this reason, he should be your only canine companion and he should continue to thrive in an environment where he is his people’s one and only canine love!  Arlo has done great when out on walks and when meeting other dogs!
