Arlington Pet of the Week: Keller

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, 9 year old Australian Shepherd and Border Collie mix, Keller.

Here is what his owner has to say about Keller’s life here in Arlington.

After being a foster failure, Keller, a 9 year-old half blind, half deaf, Australian Shepard/Border Collie, was adopted 2.5 years ago in Alamance County, North Carolina. Although his early years were filled with fast food restaurants, and living out of a car, his life turned around, and graduated college, 10lbs lighter in May of 2019!

The life of any party, Keller loves any and all attention, especially belly rubs, head rubs, and a treat or 2. Although water is not his thing, he loves going to the groomer and getting a fresh haircut and manicure, and is sure to show off his good looks to anyone willing to listen.

His favorite part of the day is going for his walk, even though the pesky parked cars, telephone poles, and sidewalks tend to get in his way, he just shakes them off and keeps going. A big fan of having other doggo friends, he prefers humans, because well…they have treats and more belly rubs.
