Arlington, VA

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Cooper, a shepherd-labrador mix from Fairlington.

Here is what his owner, Duncan, had to say about him:

Cooper is a friendly Shepherd-Lab mix. Cooper is a mutt; part labrador, shepherd and greyhound. He was raised in Fairlington and loves playing in the Four Mile Run dog park. When he’s not chasing squirrels you can catch him in the front window people-watching. He loves carrots and showing affection with lots of kisses.

He is a ball of energy. His favorite things to do are make new friends at the dog park and run around. He is an avid visitor to the Four Mile Run dog park, the only body of water he will get it in (He hates baths).

Recently he’s been making friends at the Clarendon dog park. He is very out going and social, he tried to kiss almost anyone he comes in contact with. His favorite spot to sleep or nap in is the leather couch in my room.
