This is Argo, he has been here a while. Argo arrived here December 9th 2014 at a very young 3.5 months old. He was sweet, calm, quiet and quite the lover. We held him here to get vaccinated and neutered and then began trying to find him a loving home. It didn’t take long, he has a personality that is hard to resist. A family came in, fell in love and decided he was the one for them. Unfortunately, Argo’s new family wasn’t right for him. An older couple had adopted him and they were unprepared for his puppy energy when they got him home. So after a few weeks, poor Argo was brought back to the shelter. Since his return, Argo has developed some behaviors that need work. As is typical with puppies and adolescent dogs he has become very mouthy and having a hard time with having manners while playing. Because of this he is having a difficult time playing nice with volunteers and staff. It isn’t that he is being aggressive in any way he is just getting over stimulated. He isn't getting regular interaction (like he would in a home) so he quickly gets overly excited. We here at the shelter do the best we can to try and find ways to keep him occupied. Unfortunately, there are a lot of animals and only a few staff. Argo is still looking for a forever home but in the mean time we would like to find a foster home with someone who is very familiar with dogs, puppy behavior and proper training methods for Argo. We would like to find someone who is active and can provide enough exercise for him. If you know think that you might be the person to give Argo a temporary home or even a permanent one please contact us. Even if you are unable to help Argo by offering him a place to live, you can still help by sharing this post. Let’s work together to help Argo!
