GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT News)-- Pet of the Week: Arlo
He is approximately 1 year old, male, black/white, possibly a pit mix.
His bio: “Do you have a minute to stop and play? Or maybe an hour or two? That would be great! I love to play and run and just have fun! I’m always happy to go on a walk or a run or a hike. Movin’ and groovin’ is my thing! I love being out on the move and exploring the world! It’s such a cool place and there is so much to see! I love, love, love people! In fact the only thing I love almost as much as people is food! I don’t really care much for other dogs as they only hold me back when I’m ready to go! But if you’ve got a fast paced lifestyle and are looking for an adventure buddy, pick me! I’m ready to start my fur-ever life with you!”
Other adoptable pets:
Bodah: He is approximately 2 1/2 yrs old, neutered male, brindle, possible pit mix.
His bio: “Would you like to give me belly rubs? They are one of my favorite things! Or how about I give you a big hug and some kisses? I’m a very affectionate dog and I LOVE people most of all! I think if I give you all my love that I should be able to have all of your attention. Doesn’t that seem like a fair trade? If you agree, then I am ready to go home with you. Let’s get started on our beautiful friendship!”
