New member here with my new rommie rescue

Hi everyone! I would like to introduce myself (Zoe) and my new little boy Arlo.

I adopted him on the 14th Feb so have only had him a week and a half. He arrived in the UK just a couple of days before that from Romania.
He's a small crossbreed. He's got Dachshund in him cos he has very short legs and a long body. I think he also has Jack Russell.
He's about 2 years old. When we picked him up he was very dirty and smelly. I had to shampoo him 3 times to get the dirt out! He has scabs (including at least one dog bite) and a hole through his ear about the size of a pea which I think is from his tag in the pound that the rescue saved him from.
He has wonky ribs (the vet said it could be from an injury or born like it but is fine) and a hernia (vet said is plugged so is also fine) and some bald patches (vet said lack of nutrition and is already improving).

Well I am over the moon with him. I was worried if I'd done the right thing before he arrived as I have 6 cats. Well I had nothing to worry about as he is lovely with them and has shared his bed with one of them!
He's very affectionate. He loves his crate and I don't hear a peep out of him all night. And he's picked up his house training really well. He woke me up at 6am yesterday crying to go out!

I work part time in boarding kennels and took him to work with me last week and he was good as gold. I gave him a bed in the office and he curled up asleep for most of the day!

Well I have stumbled upon these forums as I have been researching a couple of issues I've had with him that I wanna nip in the bud from the start and this looks like a great place to get some advice! I won't post them on this thread, I will find the appropriate place for them.

Nice to meet you all,
Zoe and Arlo

Hi Zoe & Arlo!! That last picture speaks a thousand words!! Arlo is a very lucky little guy & it sounds as though he's settling in very well indeed! I think it helps that he can come to work with you, lovely So happy he's out of a bad situation, Romania sadly doesn't have the best track record with stray dogs, he's definitely one of the lucky ones thanks to you

Thank you! I've been saying for years that I'm gonna get a Boston Terrier (I love them!) but I really wanted to help one of these poor souls. I will still have a Boston one day though!
