This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Chase, who’s part Husky and entirely lovable.
Chase was rescued from doggy death row in Kentucky and is now a true Arlingtonian. He even takes a weekly agility class and frequents the local farmers market.
Here’s what Val, Chase’s owner, had to say about him.
Chase (aka. Chaser, Piggly Wiggly, Big Baby) is a 2-year-old Husky-mix that was scheduled to be euthanized in a Kentucky shelter. Wolf Spirit Sled Dog rescue got him out of there and transported him to southern VA where his new parents met him and immediately fell in love. This was about 9 months ago and he’s still breaking hearts where ever he goes.
Everyone who meets him has to admit, he’s quite the character. He loves vocalizing his thoughts to others and if you don’t understand him, well he’ll just keep trying. I wish ARLnow allowed audio clips because the dog who says, “mama” got nothing on him.
Chase can be found going on long, neighborhood runs with his parents (he keeps us in shape), hanging out at the Westover Farmer’s Market (by the Three Puppies Treats stand of course), and romping around at Benjamin Banneker Dog Park.
He loves going to his weekly Agility class at Woofs where he’s an exemplary student… except when he gets impatient and throws a husky tantrum because he has to wait his turn. His favorite things are riding in the truck, frolicking with his BFF Ripley (pictured), harassing the neighborhood kids with sloppy dog kisses, playing frisbee and tug-of-war (occasionally at the same time), and waking his parents up for morning cuddles.
