This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Sherlock, a Beagle mix.
Here is what he had to say about his life so far:
Hi! My name’s Sherlock and I’m a Beagle mix. I was born in Southern Virginia but found my way up to Arlington after Lucky Dog Rescue was nice enough to save me from a life on the streets.
My mommy adopted me when I was 10 months old because she fell in love with my smile, little bobtail, and SUPER soft fur. I had a lot of energy and was quite the handful at first!
After a few months of training and growing up (and lots of peanut butter and chicken treats), I calmed down and settled into my life with my mommy.
I love living in Arlington because everyone is so friendly and there are plenty of parks and woods for me to run around and chase squirrels and rabbits.
I also enjoy rolling on my back in the sunshine and playing with my friends, Madi and Kimba. I get kind of jealous when Madi plays with Kimba because I have a not-so-secret crush on Madi.
Even though I’m 40 pounds, I think I’m a lap dog and I enjoy sitting in the middle console in the car and on the passenger’s lap while going for drives with my mommy and her friends.
I love people and will always greet them and welcome a snuggle or pat on the head. My favorite is when we go hiking and when we go to visit my grandparents and their cat, Cricket, who I love but I’m not so sure she loves me because she’s always hiding from me.
Life is good, and I’m so happy to have my mommy who I cuddle with and sleep next to every night. I can’t wait for more hikes and playing in the snow this winter!
