This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Moe, a rescue dog who’s been treated to a posh life of bow ties and posing for paintings, if his photos are any indication.
Here’s what Moe’s owner, Kearsley, had to say about her shaggy, swaggy pooch:
Moe is a shaggy 6-year-old rescue. We think he is part terrier but aren’t really sure. He was one of three puppies; Larry, Curly and Moe. He is a super friendly guy and likes the view of Fairlington from our front door. When he isn’t watching the world go by, he likes to snuggle next to people on the couch. He hasn’t mastered fetch but he is really good at shaking hands.
He has long hair that grows very fast and gets it cut with the same dog clippers used on his human brother’s hair (don’t tell his brother). Because he has so much hair, we are looking into spinning his hair into wool and starting a line of “Moe” hair sweaters.
