This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Reuben, a recently adopted Beagle mix.
Here is what Reuben had to say about his life as an Arlington puppy so far:
My name is Reuben and I was adopted on June 10 from NOVA Pets Alive. I am two and a half months old and love to play tug of war, play with my toys in mom and dad’s lap, and waking up with my dad every morning at 4 a.m.
I’m from Southwest Virginia just like my new mom and was rescued with my sister. She went home to a family with young children and I am looking forward to our puppy play dates.
I think I am a Beagle mix, but I am certain I am the absolute cutest. At only 10 weeks, I already love my crate and am trying to walk on my leash like a good boy, but that leash is a perfect tug of war toy.
My new mom and dad thought they were going to get an adult rescue dog, but when they saw me, they couldn’t resist. I love being an Arlington dog because the streets are super fun to cross (when we get the signal) and there are so many dogs to meet and play with and new smells.
