Arlington Pet of the Week: Honey

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Honey, a Rhodesian Ridgeback who loves March Madness.

Here is what Honey told us, through owner, Satya:

Hi ArlNow readers! My name is Honey – my person gave me that name after meeting me at Homeward Trails on a “just looking” visit (I won him over right away). The name describes both my coat and personality!

I’m a one-year-old living in the Cherrydale neighborhood. The shelter called me a Rhodesian Ridgeback, but we think I’m part Beagle, maybe with some Pointer in there too. Either way, I’m ALL NOSE and love to root out anything around the house that smells like my person.

Other than visits to the office on weekdays and the dog park on weekends, lately we’ve been spending time rooting on our favorite Arizona Wildcats in the NCAA tournament – you can see I love rocking my favorite team’s hoodie.

My dad also says I’m a great example of the many wonderful shelter animals available. It’s something he’s very passionate about (he even worked on a documentary about it).
