My name is Arlo. I’m a handsome, highly intelligent, funny, charming, lovable, extremely energetic boy. I’m not really a puppy, but I still act like one much of the time. I need lots of attention and a job to do. I am not one to be stuck in a crate and left alone for long periods. I like all humans, but I’m too rough for little kids. I move hard and fast, and don’t always put on the brakes. I like other dogs, but I can be protective of my food and toys. I’m really hoping to become a therapy dog, or something cool like that. I can run fast and jump high, so I would be awesome at agility. True to my breed, I also like to herd my sisters. I’m enjoy doing fun activities and learning, and I’m a good cuddle buddy for TV. I really like shows with animals, especially other dogs. I recently discovered I can jump almost 6 ft. straight up. So I need a high fence when playing in the yard. I need a parent who can recognize and appreciate my amazing abilities, and will continue to bring out the best in me. Is that you?
that are under 4 months old cannot be adopted outside of our Veterinary Service area. Please call for specific locations.
Children under 8 years old
often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs. In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.
Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. Thank you for considering a rescue!

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
