Arlington Pet of the Week: Baxter

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Baxter, a 10-month-old Golden Retriever who likes to go to the Shirlington dog park and watch Animal Planet.

Here is what his owner Rachel had to say:

Baxter is a good boy. He is a 10 month old Golden Retriever who lives in Court House. He loves to play outside with his friends, and you can usually find him on the bottom of the puppy pile! He likes to go to Shirlington Dog Park or take a walk to the Iwo Jima Memorial when the weather is nice.

Baxter has a unique love of his crate and belly rubs! His favorite treats are Earth Animal No-Hides and Himalayan Churpi Chews. His TV programs so far have been the Westminster Kennel Club dog show, FSU basketball games, and Animal Planet. He barks at the lions when they are on the hunt.

His “type” is corgis because they are fluffy and his best friend Rocket is a corgi! Baxter likes when Mama works at home because he gets more treats. Feel free to follow Baxter and his friendly adventures on Instagram @BaxterBabbs.
