Arlington Pet of the Week: Ahri

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Ahri, a feisty but adorable Shiba Inu puppy who resides in Pentagon City.

Here’s what Ahri’s owner, Jane, had to say about her:

Ahri is a 13 week old Shiba Inu, although we’re pretty sure she’s actually just a fox. She was born in Salisbury, NC, the hometown of Cheerwine. She brought with her a lot of cheer and even more whine. Since moving into the apartment, Ahri has taken claim of the living room, forcing her cat brother, Abner, to slink around the room to his food.  There have been a few close encounters, but Abner has picked up some stealth moves.

What we love most about Ahri is her outgoing personality and how she dives head first into everything, literally. Ahri loves peanut butter and meeting new people, preferably both at the same time. Her absolute favorite spot is a shelf on the coffee table. The day she grows too big to fit there will probably be the worst day of her life.

Ahri enjoys an active Arlington lifestyle including long walks on the RiverHouse trail, attending a local running group (although it’s hard to call what she does running), and playing with her two best friends, London and Hazel. One of her many accolades includes being featured in a local political campaign where she did her best to live up to her doge predecessors. In her spare time she tweets @WhatDoesAhriSay.
