Arlo 4.JPEG

ABOVE: Annie Diskey of Coopersville plays with Arlo, prior to the dog being placed in his forever home in Rockford last week. Arlo is the 16th rescue that Zach and Annie Diskey have fostered.

Canela was pregnant and homeless in Flint. She was frightened, wary, unapproachable.

And then, a little more than a year ago, a nonprofit agency in West Michigan stepped in and placed Canela with foster mom Tammy Miedema in Grandville. However, the dog remained frightened, wary and unapproachable.
