Arlington Pet of the Week: Bella

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Bella, a schnoodle puppy in Ballston.

Here’s what her owner, Robin, had to say on her behalf:

Hello Arlington, I am Bella Perrella! I’ve been a Ballston resident just about 2 months now. I recently turned 4 months old and am a whopping 6 pounds which is mainly my fur.

Although I look like a Golden Doodle, I am a Schnoodle (50% miniature schnauzer and 50% toy poodle) and am 100% fluff. When I am full grown I should be about 10 pounds! I live in the middle of Ballston so you may have seen me hanging out in my favorite spot, the Rustico Beer Garden and on Thursday’s I love when my mom takes me to the Ballston’s Farmers Market. My favorite hobbies include playing with leaves, walking to Clarendon to go to North Side Social, and attending all of the Yappy Hours offered in Arlington. On the weekends, I enjoy going on hikes, I just discovered Theodore Roosevelt Island, it is the perfect distance for my little legs. I also enjoy when my mom and dad take me to all the wineries throughout Virginia.

If you see me hopping around Arlington feel free to come say hello. I love all the extra belly rubs I can get!
