Arlington Pet of the Week: Popcorn

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Popcorn, an energetic French Bulldog.

Here is what Carly, Popcorn’s owner has to say about him:

This is Popcorn, the eight-week-old Frenchie.

Popcorn moved to Arlington, Virginia just one week ago from Port Tobacco, Maryland to live with his new mom and cat brother. Weighing in at only 6 lbs, he is packed full of energy! He got his name from his mom’s favorite nightly snack — one that he will never get to try since bullies are known for their tummy problems.

Popcorn is a spoiled little bulldog, who likes to trade in his basket full of toys for a nice shoe or cell phone. He spends most of his day barking at the cat, chewing on his mommy’s ankles at her desk and taking endless naps during which he can be found whining, barking and wiggling his little nose having puppy dreams.

He loves to go on walks (if they are in the direction that he wants to go at that particular time), eat leaves and go potty on the cowhide rug.

Popcorn can’t wait to get to explore Arlington and meet tons of new friends!
