Arlington Pet of the Week: Wingo

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Wingo, a Chinese crested dog with a taste for paper products.

Here’s what his owner, Brook, had to say about him:

This is Wingo! He’s a hairless Chinese Crested who just turned 2 in January. Fun story: his mom fell in love with the breed many years ago after pet-sitting one and after waiting 6 years, who did she luck into finding at the Animal Welfare League of Arlington in January 2018 but this cutie! It was meant to be.

Admittedly, Wingo is a pretty weird dog in both looks and personality (said in the most loving way!). He loves eating paper products, much to his parents’ dismay, and feathers which he steals from all the pillows. He’s currently taking a nosework training class that focuses on scent-finding, which he absolutely loves! He also flaunts his nudity and becomes incredibly pouty when forced to wear clothes (especially costumes). He’s super cuddly and always want to be snuggled up to his parents, so much so that he gets to sleep in between them in (under the covers!) at night. His nickname around his friends is ‘King Wing’ because he’s a pretty spoiled only child, but those big brown eyes are pretty hard to resist!

He lives around VA Square, so if you see him out on a walk (he’s rather unmistakable) be sure to stop and say hi!
