Arlington Pet of the Week: Rex

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Rex, a puppy who loves hiking and playing with other dogs. Here is what his owner, Kris, had to say about him:

Such a small name and such a small dog, but a super big personality and spunk. Rex is a four month old Norwich terrier who is very energetic and loves to play. Rex is a new family dynamic for us, as our 16 1/2 year old Australian Terrier passed away last June. Rex has been a ball of energy and a welcome new addition.

In Rex’s young life already he has taken to hiking on trails and parks like his family. He especially liked a trip to Shenandoah River State Park to go leaf peeping in October. His favorite spot to sniffle and hike is Potomac Overlook Park.

Rex is becoming very familiar with the Bluemont Junction Trail where he lives close by. He is slowly making neighborhood friends and likes to play with any size dog so far even though he is only 5.6 pounds.

Say hi to Rex if you see him on the trails!
