Arlington, VA

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Huckleberry, a 6-month-old puppy.

Huckleberry is new to Arlington and loves playing with his stuffed toy alligator. Here’s what Huck’s parents had to say about him:

Huckleberry is a 6-month-old Vizsla puppy who became Arlington’s cutest new resident in March, when his owners Diane & Hank adopted him from Pittsburgh!

Huckleberry, or Huck for short, is a playful and energetic puppy who loves sniffing anything he can get his nose on! He can be shy at first, but once he gets comfortable with his surroundings, he loves romping around with other puppies and playing with his favorite toy – a green, stuffed alligator. Huck also enjoys chasing his brother – a 2-year-old Tabby cat named Maize – in circles around the apartment. Luckily for Maize, Huck is still too small to jump up and reach him on the furniture!

Though Huck is still a puppy, he has already learned several commands such as “sit” and “kisses.” When Huck isn’t out and about in Arlington, he likes to cuddle up inside with his favorite bone and fall asleep in bed…under the covers!
