Arlington Pet of the Week

Our Arlington Pet of the Week this week is Charlotte, a Shiba Inu-Chihuahua mix puppy.

Rescued from a high-kill shelter in North Carolina, Charlotte now resides with owner Jeannie on Columbia Pike, in the Columbia Heights neighborhood. Jeannie wrote the following about Charlotte.

This is my dog Charlotte. She is a Shiba Inu-Chihuahua mix puppy about 7 months old. Just a few short months ago she was in a high kill shelter in North Carolina. But luckily she was flown out of North Carolina by Pilots and Paws to safety here in VA. A volunteer with Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) fostered Charlotte and just a few days after Charlotte was in VA I met her on the street during one of her walks and fell in love with her sweet face! About a week later she was home with me for good! She has been with me for a few months and still LOVES her walks. The picture below should say it all. Pilots and Paws and FOHA are so wonderful to take care of these animals, get them out of the shelters and into loving homes. I can’t thank them enough for Charlotte!

The Arlington Pet of the Week is sponsored by Dogma Bakery, which has locations at The Village at Shirlington (2772 S. Arlington Mill Drive) and the Lee Harrison Shopping Center (2445 N. Harrison Street).

    4 out of 5 “Pets of the week” have been dogs. When are we going to get fair and balanced pet coverage ?

      Surely someone in Arlington must have a photgenic Tarantula

    • Stephanie Todd

      When you consider the fact that I receive at LEAST 2 dozen dog entries for every 1 cat entry and at least 4 dozen dog entries for every snake/lizard/fish/guinea pig entry, 4 out 5 seems beyond fair and balanced.

      • Hee-Haw

        that’s my point. This feature should be called “dog of the week”.

  • MikeinARL

  • Barry O

  • Ralph

  • Sonny

  • Chrissy

    What a cutie! And so glad to see a rescue dog that has ended up in a great home.

  • Tabs

    Cute, for a dog.

  • She is just adorable and I’m so happy she survived and has a wonderful home. I can tell she’s very spoiled 🙂 – all in pink to match her colors and she sticks out her tongue at photographs. What a Diva.

    Thanks to all who rescue animals!!!

    Good lord I hate little yappy dogs

    • KathyInArlington

      What makes you think that this particular dog is yappy? Is it because she is small? Not all small dogs are yappy. Let’s give this gorgeous little dog the benefit of the doubt.

    I don’t like a lot of dogs but omg that thing is cute. Agree with previous poster that i suspect it probably yaps a lot though.

  • YTK

    Yappy is usually the Cheewawa’s middle name

  • Ralph

    Definitely a yapper.
