Our latest Arlington Pet of the Week is Bailey, a Labrador retriever mix who was adopted from a rescue organization earlier this year.
Here’s what owner Julie had to say about her:
Bailey is a 17-month old Labrador retriever mix, whom we adopted from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation in May. Bailey is originally from Georgia, but she quickly learned to love New England sports, showing her team pride on her collars.
Bailey is a well-behaved dog (thanks to training for her owners) and responds especially well to her favorite treats, including peanut butter, carrots, apples, ice cubes, and rawhide. On occasion she is hesitant to try new things, such as baths, but she becomes more comfortable and confident with each exposure.
During our walks, she loves to sniff everything and snack on anything she finds along the way. We affectionately call her Bailey the Bunny Hunter as she has a keen ability to find rabbits from down the street. She is not much of a napper, unless she spent the day at doggy daycare. When she needs some quiet time, she hides under the bed. Bailey would love to spend her entire day chasing tennis balls, a laser pointer, or her tail. She is a great companion whether we are hiking, dining outside, apple picking, visiting a local winery, or just relaxing at home.
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).
