This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Mason, a rescue dog that “likes other dogs,” but loves people.
Here’s what owner Kristina had to say:
My name is Mason! I was named after George Mason and am a 4-year-old rescue from a shelter in West Virginia. I think I am a Belgian Shepherd mix, but others tell me that I am also part Akita. I’m not really sure — but I do know that I’m cute!
I like other dogs… but I love people. My favorite activity is relaxing in my yard and looking at the squirrels and occasional deer that walk past my fence. I try to jump over the fence to play with the deer but my large torso won’t quite make it over the top of the fence, so just I watch standing on my two hind legs.
I love to travel and have a favorite toy that I carry around everywhere. I am not easily offended and can do several tricks (one of which is an army crawl), but my favorite trick is taking naps all day long. I also love to sit inside my house and bark when packages are delivered by strangers.
