Arlington Pet of the Week: Paprika

Arlington’s Pet of the Week is Paprika, a 5 month old Pomeranian mix who recently came to Arlington from Colombia.

Here is what Paprika’s owner said that she had to say about her life so far.

My name is Paprika. I am a five month old Pomeranian mix from Colombia. My human mommy rescued me from Popayan, Colombia when I was a tiny baby. I wasn’t eating much on my first day so she stayed up all night feeding me until I was strong enough to feed from my birth mom.

I waited 4 long months to be reunited with my human mommy in Arlington. I took a bus and two planes to get here but it was worth it! My human mommy and I like to go on hikes and adventures every weekend. My favorite so far has been hiking in a creek and chasing all the squirrels, birds and leaves. I also like saying hi and trying to play with every dog we pass on walks.

I’m learning new things every day. Every day is an adventure for me and I am so thankful my human mommy found me.
