Arno was found being tied to a tree, unable to find shelter under the rain or the blazing sun. When he was found by a local person, the person released Arno so he can roam, but only to find that Arno tethered again to the tree the next day. Upon further investigation, a senior was tying Arno to the tree to make sure that he doesn’t run into the traffic, and that he can feed Arno to make sure he survives. It is out of the good intent, however, it is not the best solution for Arno. The person contacted the rescuer, who took Arno to the vet. The vet discovered a large wound around Arno’s neck that looked like something had dipped into his skin. Worse yet, the wound is infected and started to rot. Fortunately it is caught early, and Arno has soon recovered from it!
Arno might have been attacked on the street prior to being rescued, so he gets scared by large dogs on the street. He will bark out of fear upon seeing one, and is something a new adopter needs to work with him. Arno has a consistent potty schedule in the foster home, but it may change when he comes to Canada and trying to adapt to a new lifestyle.
He’s a happy pup who loves chewing things. He also is very fond of kitties and would approach to groom her. This may or may not be a desirable trait depending on the kitties.
Arno gets along with all the dogs in the foster homes almost right away. Please however note that all dogs need some time to adjust to the new people, new environment, new dogs, and extra patience will be needed.
