Arlington Pet of the Week: Max

This week’s Pet of the Week is Max, a German shepherd that lives in Crystal City and loves tennis balls.

Here is what Max’s family had to say about his life here in Arlington with his owner:

Max is a happy 2 ½ year-old german shepherd who lives in a pet-friendly apartment complex in Crystal City with his owner, Jordan. Jordan walks Max three times a day around the neighborhood or to the building’s dog park. Sometimes, when Jordan is busy during the day, a helping neighbor, Mimi, takes Max with her own dog Vlad to the building dog park. Vlad and Max have become best friends! Thank you, Mimi. It takes a village.

Max loves to play with tennis balls and he is very good at it.  He jumps high to catch them and never misses!  On weekends or on Jordan’s days off, Max and Jordan can be seen in Arlington’s great dog parks like Glencarlyn, James Hunter, Shirlington or Towers Park.  Occasionally, Jordan and Max will venture to Fairfax’s interconnector trail for a wilder adventure.

At 100 lbs, Max is a force of nature. When he wants to go, he goes!  But at the same time, Max is very loving and very sweet. He loves to cuddle with family and is quick to make new friends. Everyone who meets him instantly loves him.
