A volunteer writes: Arlo' s sweet face and welcoming demeanor always made me want to take him out until I was allowed to spend time with him yesterday. What a gorgeous dog ! Well built, healthy despite his little cold and clad in a perfect strawberry blonde coat. His eyes are intense, quite serious at times, like the world is weighing down his shoulders. He walks beautifully on the leash and eliminates without marking his territory. He sits on command and is quite obedient. He likes treats and takes them politely from my hand. Arlo loves tennis balls.He runs fast and jumps high to catch them , treasures them, chewing them to perfection and never breaking them apart. It is an art..He enjoys caresses, puts his head on my lap, relished butt's scratches and even gratifies me with a kiss on my hand at the end of our session together. Arlo's story is unclear to us. . ..He is a handsome dog, friendly, sociable and showing affection. He could have some tendencies to want to keep his stuff like a two year old kid and it will be a question to teach him to share with grace like we all did with our kids or grandkids. . .. Arco is at the Manhattan Care Center, dreaming to make his new beginnings with you
