Arlo is a 5.5 year border collie recently rescued by Humane Society. 

Arlo loves humans but is unsure about other dogs. He is fine with small ones and big dogs who don't get in his face. He will chase cats so will need a home without any. 

He loves going for walks and will need very good fencing as he does like to take himself off for a walk. 
He also needs an active family who know border collies, how much exercise they require and so on. 
He wouldn't be suited to first time dog owners or young children either. 

Arlo has been vet-checked, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and is currently registered so we will ask for a minimum DONATION of $200 towards these costs. 

If you are interested in adopting him, you will need a securely fenced property to keep him contained which a volunteer from the Society will check prior to him being released to his new home. 

You will also need to meet him at our foster home in South Auckland as we WILL NOT send dogs anywhere and must meet all prospective new owners. 

Our aim is to adopt each dog to a compatible owner. The Humane Society reserves the right to decline any dog adoption application at its discretion. 

Please phone or email for more information.
