Pet of the Week: Boogie

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Boogie. He’s a Cairn terrier mix who loves people, especially when they know his name and that he’s the unofficial mayor of Pentagon City.

Here’s what Kimberly, one of Boogie’s humans, had to say about him.

Boogie, a 10-year old Cairn terrier mix, is known as the Mayor of Pentagon City because of the friendly greeting he gives every human and canine he meets in the neighborhood. With his signature lion-like mane and constantly wagging deer-like tail, he’s developed quite a following since moving to the neighborhood 6 years ago, and he takes pride in the fact that so many people greet him by name.

Adopted 8 years ago from the Animal Welfare League of Arlington after being found as a stray, Boogie quickly took to apartment living. A strong silent type, he rarely makes a sound but still is easily able to convey his desire for a walk, a snack, a snuggle or a belly rub.

When he’s not chasing squirrels in Virginia Highlands Park, he can usually be found strolling the neighborhood with one of his human parents, grabbing lunch with one of his many human friends at outdoor cafes, or relaxing in front of the Pentagon Row shops waiting for passersby to pet him. Next time you see him, say hello!
