Arlington Pet of the Week: Igor

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Igor, a Pug who loves snuggling in warm places and eating pork treats.

Here’s what Igor’s owner, Pablo, had to say about him:

We’d like to introduce Igor.

Igor is a 6 year old pug that loves cuddles and treats, but what pet doesn’t? Igor and his family relocated to Arlington from California in August after a really cool road trip.

Igor’s favorite treats are pork crackling (skins) and he will sit, shake and play dead for them, but he will do none of that if there is no treat in the deal.

Igor is not used to cold weather, so he is loving his new snugly bed and sweaters. He loves meeting new dog friends during his morning and afternoon walks around Pentagon Row .

Igor is a professional snuggler, he sleeps around 14 hours a day and will come sit by any human he can lean against for warmth. Bonus snuggle points if you have a warm blanket to wrap him in.
