Arlington Pet of the Week: Kobe Washington

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Kobe Washington, a young boxer-labrador mix living in Rosslyn.

Here’s what owner, Crystal, had to say on Kobe’s behalf:

Hello Arlington! My name is Kobe Washington. I am a 10 week old Boxador Mix who resides in Rosslyn as of a week ago. I have a little story of how I was brought from Corinth, Mississippi to Northern Virginia!

I was found in Corinth, Mississippi by very nice people from Wolf Trap Animal Rescue. They found me along with 3 other dogs and 35 puppies (a bit of a crowded situation). I was taken from Mississippi  and brought to McLean,Virginia to find my new family! My Dad (before he was my Dad) came into PetSmart in Tyson’s Corner on December 8th, and couldn’t take his eyes off me! He knew I would be a perfect Christmas present for my now Mommy. He adopted me the Saturday before Christmas! He put me in a Santa suit and surprised my new Mommy with me in hand! My new Mommy smothered me in hugs and kisses, and the rest was history!

If you see me around town on my walks (that I’m not liking so much at the moment), please feel free to stop and say hi! I love meeting new people and dogs, I like to play, cuddle, eat and sleep!  I rather stop and say hi to people than walk!
