Arlington Pet of the Week: Sophie

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Sophie, a black Labrador mix.

Here is what she had to say about her life so far:

Hi everyone! My name is Sophie, and I’m a black lab mix. I was born in South Carolina, but my mom and dad adopted me from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue when I was about one year old.

I was underweight, stinky and sick with heart worm, but after a few months I felt much better. I have lots of doggy cousins, and my best friends are Petey and Louie. I don’t have a fur sibling yet, but I’m keeping my paws crossed that I’ll get one soon!

I have a ton of energy and lots of hobbies. Here are some of my favorite things to do: swim, run, jump, get tummy rubs, play with tennis balls, obsessively lick stuff, stalk squirrels, bark at strangers and watch Bravo with mom.

I also enjoy dirty socks, clean socks, pup-sicles, sleeping in the sunshine, and listening to my parents make up songs about me.

Because I had a hard life before I was adopted, some things still scare me. I hate loud noises, cardboard boxes, guitars, golf clubs, Roomba, thunderstorms, maintenance people, and men wearing hats. My mom and dad always comfort me when I’m scared though– that’s one of the reasons I love them.

All in all, I have a great life, and I’m looking forward to a lifetime of trips to the dog park, cuddles, and walks!
