Arlington Pet of the Week: Sabra

Dogma Bakery

Meet Sabra, a rescue dog who escaped war and near-death before finding her new owners in Arlington.

This is what Sabra’s owner said about this international pooch:

This is our dog, Sabra. She is a very special dog because she came to us from Israel as a rescue during the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War. Sabra was found with several other litter mates at just a few months old in an area that was being hit with rockets. An organization brought Sabra and 38 other puppies from Israel to the United States for adoption. My mom and I decided to help out at an adoption event for these puppies but because we already had two dogs (both from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington!) we told ourselves we could not and would not get another dog.

We ended up fostering Sabra. She needed special care because she almost died on the way to America. When she arrived, the veterinarians were sure that they’d have to put her down but she’s a strong doggy and she made it! As we cared for her, we fell in love with Sabra and ended up adopting her.

She is the most affectionate, loving, and strange dog we’ve ever had. She is about 80 pounds but she thinks she’s a lap dog. If you’re on the couch it won’t be long before she gets on the couch and falls asleep in your lap. If you’re not paying attention to her she’ll paw at you until you do — it gets annoying but we love her. We are not sure what her breed is, but we are sure that she’s beautiful, cute, and has the most expressive eyes.

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).
