On November 4, Arlo arrived at the Chicago Animal Care and Control as a stray. Perhaps that was the luckiest situation for this little lost soul who was reportedly so tired that all he wanted to do was sleep. There is no doubt Arlo has been severely neglected for an extended period of time; the exhausted stray pup just wanted to rest.
According to the CACC Dog Transfer Team Facebook page, ARLO A158064 is a ten-year-old male. He came into the shelter as a stray on 11/4/16 and is available for rescue at 7 pm on 11/7/16. He is noted to be actively sneezing and desperately needs a grooming and a nail trim. The dog seemed exhausted and didn’t want to get up.
A veterinarian examination has been requested by the team. An approved rescue group has expressed an interested in rescuing Arlo, however a foster family is needed. If interested in helping or donating to the rescue of this friendless little Yorkie mix, contact Fetching Tails Foundation.
“Sometimes we wonder how a human can treat and neglect a dog like this. This old fella is currently at Chicago Animal Control. He is 10 years young, Male Yorkie and in need of a foster home. He does need an isolation foster because he has been exposed to the canine flu. Let’s work together to save this old soul and give him a good life going forward.”
Do not call the shelter to inquire about any dogs posted on the CACC Rescue page. The volunteer Transfer Team was created to help with this, so please send a note via their Facebook page. These dogs are not on the adoption floor for reasons cited as space, medical, etc. Approved rescue groups must intervene to help.
