Arlington Pet of the Week: Charlie

Becky's Pet Care

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!

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos, they don’t fit in our photo galleries!

Each week’s winner receives a sample of dog or cat treats from our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, along with $100 in Becky’s Bucks. Becky’s Pet Care is the winner six consecutive Angie’s List Super Service Awards, the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters’ 2013 Business of the Year and a proud supporter of the Arlington County Pawsitively Prepared Campaign.
