This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Chase.
Once a stray in wild and wonderful West Virginia, Chase is now living the high life in Clarendon, romping around award-winning million-dollar dog parks and engaging in recreational bird watching.
Here’s what Chase’s owner, Bennett, had to say about him.
Chase is a 4-year-old Brittany spaniel. He was placed in a rescue shelter as a stray in West Virginia and then moved to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. After one visit with Chase I knew he would make a great addition to my home and life. He has certainly contributed great joy to the Arlington community; enjoying the James Hunter Dog Park, watching the birds and squirrels run around, and walking around Clarendon smiling and saying hello to anyone who will stop to greet him,
Chase was previously a bird-hunting dog and therefore, birds come first. He still has quite the hunting personality and will sniff and point his way around Arlington when given the chance. He enjoys running and playing with other dogs, chewing on his bones, and sleeping on his back with one of his front legs stretched out.
