About me:

Hello! My name is Ari. I have been sitting at the county shelter for months. I am quiet, sweet and cute and I think some people may not have noticed me with all the other barking dogs around me. I love people soooo much and wag and smile and take treats so gently. A lady saw me and took me out for visits to the ‘real’ world. She discovered I was different when out of the crazy environment of the shelter.

She reached out to Pets Return Home and their humans and wonderful dogs at their facility have helped me. My new friends are teaching me I don’t need to be afraid and it’s ok to just be me, a young, playful teenager, who can be part of the pack. I love that It is much more fun to have friends that look like me and to trust that they are my friends!

I think I am about two, I’m neutered and I cannot wait to meet my new family soon so I can make them really happy and do what I’m told. I love to please and they say I’m super smart! And little kids are fun too. They like to give me treats and I love to eat them- the treats- so I’m very careful when I take treats from them.


Behavioral notes:

Pets Return Home helps dog-rescue and animal shelter organizations prevent the needless killing of homeless dogs by providing behavior refinement, command training and socializing in a safe and stress-free refuge. These dogs are victims of human neglect, abuse, ignorance and animal shelter overpopulation and require help to restore their confidence and ability to be loving family companions. We provide on-going support to sustain a long-term healthy family relationship. Our team has 25 years’ experience searching, training, refining behavior and healing dogs and holds certifications in search, training and medical protocols.
