This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Noodle, a dog that emmigrated all the way from Korea.
Here is what her owner, Sunnie, had to say about her:
Noodle is probably Arlington’s most well-traveled pup!
We picked Noodle up from Dulles airport when she was just 6 months old after a 16 hour flight from Korea. Noodle was rescued by an amazing group called Hope for Donghae Paws. The group rescues dogs from rural Korea, many of whom come from the meat trade market, abusive situations and overall neglect.
Noodle has come a long way since her dog travel days and has warmed up to living in the States quickly!
Noodle loves her dog friends above all else; you can find her romping around the backyard of Potomac Towers with her friends, getting covered in sand at the Clarendon Dog Park or kickin’ at doggy daycare.
In addition, she enjoys loungin’ on the couch, throwing socks around, sleeping like a human and overall just being a happy pup! She also recently played a critical role in asking her mom to marry her dad! Although she looks mildly upset, we think she was just exhausted from keeping the secret for so long!
