Loyal, affectionate, young, playful and smart, Arlo will make a great companion for someone who is active and outdoorsey but also happy for cuddles at night.
A lover of the outdoors, his life would be one long walk if left to him. He likes balls, sticks and anything he can run after. Arlo plays fetch brilliantly, brings things straight back, drops, sits and backs off until he's told to chase again.
He's extremely loyal, cute, and easy to train. Perceptive, he will be by your side to provide consolation and lick your tears away.
Arlo is athletic and great fun if you're outdoorsey. Like most staffys he is muscular and strong. He can jump and run very fast.

Active singles or couples home more often than not with the time and experience to help Arlo manage his separation anxiety.
