This week’s Pet of the Week is Jax, a 3-year-old mutt who is commonly mistaken for a chocolate lab puppy.

Here’s what Jax’s owners, Mike and Anna, had to say about him:

Hello people of Arlington! I’m Jax! I was adopted by my awesome parents in January. Before I was adopted, I was a stray in West Virginia and wandered my way into a high-kill shelter. Luckily, I made my way to Arlington and now am quite spoiled by my new parents in Rosslyn. Most people think I am a chocolate lab puppy but I am a 3-year-old adorable mutt A.K.A. a permanent puppy weighing in at 22 pounds.

I am the biggest cuddle bug around. Since I am quite the cuddle bug, my favorite activity is definitely napping! Napping with mom and dad, my other four-legged best friends, or even by myself. I am not a fan of the snow or the cold but on the warm days we have had I have enjoyed hiking and running outside. I have quite the sweet wardrobe that I wear proudly to keep me warm during freezing cold days. My parents say I’m quite dapper when I strut my stuff.
