Arlington Pet of the Week: Mister Waffles

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Mr. Waffles, who his owners say would sound and look “just like Matthew McConaughey” if he were human.

Here’s what owner Grace wrote on behalf of her deliciously named pup:

Howdy! My name is Waffles, and I’m a Southern gentleman from rural South Carolina. After being rescued by Homeward Trails, I was immediately adopted by two lovely ladies (what can I say — with these doe eyes and sparkling smile, I can easily melt even the coldest of hearts). I’m a 4-year-old miniature lab mix, and I enjoy the simple things in life — good company and good eats! I also am just a tad fancy — I have a penchant for wearing bow ties, and I’m usually sporting some trendy ensemble from Barks Brothers.

When I’m extremely happy or content, I like to snort like a pig! My joyful attitude always brightens others’ days. I am a favorite in my apartment building, and I can usually be found carrying one of my many felt squeaky toys in the building’s dog park. My hobbies are: sleeping on the couch, ignoring my cat brother Pancake, dancing to Nat King Cole (a fellow soulful crooner), and receiving Wylie Wagg treats! My owners always say that if I was human, I would probably sound/look just like Matthew McConaughey.
