Arlington Pet of the Week: Archimedes

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Archimedes, a rescue that has just mastered the command ‘sit’ and is working on learning more.

Here is what Archie’s owner told us that he has to say about his life in Arlington:

Hi my name is Archimedes, after the Greek Mathematician, but you can call me Archie. My litter-mates and I were rescued from a kill shelter and my new mom and dad got me before Christmas. I was the unique pup of the bunch, being the only brindle with blue-green eyes

Currently I love my cookie monster, blankies, meeting new people, and being told I have the prettiest eyes and coat. I’ve totally mastered ‘sit’, but most everything else is gibberish. Hopefully I’ll grow smarter each day to live up to my namesake, but for now I’ll eat every leaf in sight.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos, they don’t fit in our photo galleries!
