Hi! I'm Argo-- As the saying goes, "age is just a number"; Well, I'm here to prove that ~5 years old is the new 2. I am an active, adventurous, wild man who is looking for a family that's got room for someone as BIG as me. Despite my small stature, my personality is large, and in charge. I am a vocal boy, I love to talk to my people, and I do it often- I'll carry out a full conversation with ya, then we can go for a nice long walk in the sun. I do well with other doggies who are kind and respectful of my space & boundaries; but have been known to apply appropriate corrections to other dogs who are too forward. I was real nervous when I first arrived to HALO, but since then-- The HALO team has been super patient and tolerant with me, and they've given me the chance to work on building up my own confidence. I'm super thankful for this, and have already gained quite a bit of my own confidence. I'm nervous around children, so I'll need an adult-only home; and if there are any youngsters in your life then we should prepare for some slow, safe, and proper introductions in the future, once I'm more acclimated to the new home. I'm known to bond quickly, especially to people who are lovers-- But I do best in environments where love/affection are used as a valuable resource, to encourage positive behaviors & engagement. I do great on the leash, once I get to know ya'; But some patience here will be required as well while we're getting used to each other. The HALO team says that I will be a bit of a project, but they also say that the reward will be well-worth it in the end. If I sound like your cup-o'-tea, then schedule a meet & greet today and let's get this show on the road!
