Hi, my name’s Arlo and I’ve come to the SSC from another rescue as my Dad sadly passed away.

I’m a super friendly boy and love spending time with all my friends at kennels. I make sure their faces are nice and clean by giving them lots of kisses!

I can’t wait to find my new home – my dad was homeless, so I spent all my life living on the streets. I was so happy with my dad but my Aunties at SSC have told me about the nice things I might have in a home, like a comfy sofa to rest on, a nice bed to snuggle in and maybe a cosy fireplace to lie in front of.

I go to sleep dreaming of these but as I’ve never lived in a home, it’s all going to be new to me. I might need a bit of time and help to learn what I should do – my friends at SSC have said they will be on hand to give you any advice if needed.

I’ve never had a garden of my own, but that will be great as I love to play! I especially love my tug toy – it’s great fun shaking it around on my own but also playing tug with my friends.


I’m not keen on other dogs – I find them a bit scary and sometimes growl and pull towards them, as I had a really bad experience once.

I’ve been trained to wear my muzzle and I’m happy to put it on as its means walkies and they’re great fun!

I walk great on the lead and love to investigate everything on my walk and maybe have a cuddle or two as well.

I sit nicely, give my paw, and will speak for a tasty treat – I love sausages! (Make sure you stock up on those please!)

I went to the vets for a check-up and I was super good! I got into the van with no trouble and settled down quickly for the drive. I didn’t make a sound when we were waiting either, I was so patient! The lovely vet lady said I’m in really good health and that I was no trouble at all for my check-up.

I’m going for a snooze now to dream of a home but if you’d like to adopt me, please fill out an application form and one of my aunties will be in touch.

Love and Licks,

Arlo xx
