Arlington, VA

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Charlie, an attention-loving dog who won this year’s Crystal City Pups and Pilsners social media photo contest. (That’s him, above, at the dog-friendly beer tasting event last weekend.)

Charlie is a Shih Tzu who, like many of us, enjoys being a “lazy bones” on the weekend.

Here’s what Charlie’s owner had to say about him:

Hi, my name is Charlie! I’m a 3 year old Shih Tzu. I may be small but I love being the center of attention!

I’m very friendly and want to say hi to everyone and everything! I loooove going outside during the week and being a lazy bones on the weekends. I have a few tricks if you have treats. If you’re in Arlington or attend dog friendly events, you may see me running around. Check out my Instagram, @TzuAndBrew, where you can see pictures of me and the craft beer my humans drink!
