I iz a kitteh and never really met a dog before I joined Twitter. But when I met @ArlieJo I thought mebbe doggies weren't so scary after all. I really love ArlieJo. She's one of my furry bestest furends!
How old were you when you moved in with your family? Were you a rescue?
--My estimated age on Gotcha Day was 3-5 yrs. Mom saw me on Petfinder.com while playing Sav-A-Dog on Facebook. I was pulled from a high-kill shelter in NC by a PA rescue group & transported to a foster home, where I lived for 5-6 months before mom & dad adopted me forever!
How was your mom inspired to name you?
--My foster mom, Arlene was already calling me "Arly," I spoze cuz it sounded kind of like her name. Mom didn't want to confuse me by changing it, but changed the spelling to "Arlie," as she thought that was more girlie (whatever!). Just a week after I left the foster home, my foster dad, Joe passed away (he was old & had been very sick). Mom knew he loved me very much so she added "Jo" to my name in Mr. Joe's honor. Miss Arlene was happy about that. :)
