Arlington Public Library has postponed its Library dog program, sponsored by the Friends of the Arlington Public Library.
We recently discovered that our sweet dog is not a good fit to meet the demands of working with children and the public, based on some innate disposition and behavior issues.
While these are mild issues, a dog that is going to work with the public must meet the highest standards of behavior, as the safety of our patrons is our first priority.
Although we are disappointed, the dog will be returned to the breeder for a full refund, and re-homed with another loving family.
We will now take a brief “paws,” and continue the search for a Library Dog that will be the best fit for our community.
