Arlington Pet of the Week: Pickles

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Pickles, an 18-month-old Catahoula rescue.

Here’s what his owner, William, had to say:

He loves his new home in Arlington after he was rescued from Texas. He’s a fast learner and loves to eat, so it never takes him long to master a new trick when there are hot dogs on the line. Pickles has never met a human he didn’t like, and likes to spend his day by your side, always prepared for a belly rub.

Pickles loves sneaking up on squirrels and rabbits, even when his human standing next to him gives him away, and he keeps his nose to the ground on nighttime walks pursuing the elusive neighborhood fox. He enjoys watching nature documentaries and video games, and if there’s a hug happening nearby he has to be in the middle of it!
