Arlington Pet of the Week: Heidi

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week Heidi,  an 8 year old Mastiff who loves getting her nails painted.

Here what Heidi’s owner had to say about her life here in Arlington:

Heidi is an 8 year old mastiff who hails from the beaches of Southern California. She misses swimming at the dog beach year round, but is very impressed by Westover’s squirrel population. When Heidi isn’t getting her nails painted her signature pink or grabbing a puppuccino from Starbucks, she can be found sleeping on her humans’ bed or sofa.

Heidi was 25 lbs overweight when she was rescued six years ago. The vet ran lots of tests, but ultimately diagnosed her as clinically fat and lazy. She loves belly rubs, and will eat anything that remotely resembles food. She currently holds the unofficial title of world’s largest lapdog.

If you see Heidi around town, please stop her and say hello. Heidi is the center of her humans’ world, but she has no sense of loyalty and will love you just as much as she loves them. Or more if you have treats.
