This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Bandit, a social pup from South Carolina who celebrated his second birthday last month.
Here’s what Bandit’s owners, Melissa and Sam, had to say on his behalf:
Hi, my name is Bandit and I steal hearts! I’m an mutt from South Carolina who came to Virginia because I heard it’s for lovers. I love every person and dog I meet. I’m enthusiastic and wag my tail a lot. If you see me, I like to be pet, and everyone who pets me notices how remarkably soft my fur is. It is quite nice if I do say so myself!
On the weekend I like to go to local dog parks and on hikes. I hope to meet all of the puppers of Arlington one day. Perhaps I’ll see you and we can play. But, please don’t splash any water on me — I am decidedly not a water dog and think water dogs are crazy!
When I want something, I will sit quietly and look up at you making my signature I’m a good boy who needs a treat face. I am a rescue adopted from Operation Paws for Homes… This year I got an early birthday present — a sister from the same rescue organization, who is just as energetic and social as me. I’m living a great life and it’s great to have a friend always by my side.
