ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — ABC Action News works with local animal shelters to find homes for dogs through our weekly Pet of the Week feature.

This week we are featuring Arlo. He is a 2-year-old hound mix from Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg.

Arlo loves people and always wants to be involved in whatever is going on. He is a little goofy and very curious, which guarantees lots of adventures and laughs. Shelter workers say one of his favorite activities is splashing in the doggy pool.
