Arlington Pet of the Week: Ziggy

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Ziggy, a new Arlington resident, who loves to be wrapped in blankets.

Ziggy is almost 2 years old and loves chasing squirrels and bunnies in the neighborhood. Here’s what Ziggy’s parents had to say about him:

Ziggy is just shy of two years old but has the spirit and energy of a new pup. Although his parents are not sure of his breed his inquisitive ears, and peppy step make him Prince of the Pike! He came to us from South Carolina and has been sniffing his way through Arlington for five months now!

Ziggy loves meeting all the pups around Arlington, especially at the dog park, and loves it even more when the pups chase him around. He loves being chased almost as much as he loves chasing the squirrels and bunnies in our neighborhood. One day he will catch one!

After a long day of chasing, Ziggy loves cuddling with his parents and being wrapped in his “burrito blankets.” Make sure and say hi if you see Ziggy around. I am sure he will make your day!
