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!
