Arlington Pet of the Week: Bojangles

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Bojangles, a 7 year old Australian Shepherd Corgi mix who loves to nap.

Here is what Bojangles’ owner has to say about his life here in Arlington:

Bojangles is a 7-year-old Australian Shepherd/Corgi mix! At only 15″ tall, Bojangles compensates for his stature in sheer fluff and bark volume. When he’s not napping on the couch or staring at his humans, he enjoys watching intently over the intersection of Fairfax Drive and N Monroe St from his window and performing the only two tricks he knows: shake and high five.

Despite his limited trick repertoire, Bojangles is a true intellectual, ever searching for the answers to life’s trickiest questions: What does the discarded pizza crust in Quincy Park taste like? Where do my humans go during the day? How many times must I bark at a scooter before it barks back?

Although he was adopted from a rural area SIX years ago now, he’s never gotten used to city life–trucks, children, bikes, joggers, other dogs and generally anything that moves is still quite offensive to Bojangles’ sensibilities. If you see Bojangles out and about (you’ll recognize him by the barking), please feel free to say hello! He’s loud and socially awkward but loves attention and will happily accept pets and cuddles. You can follow Bojangles’ updates via his mom’s IG: @poppymerrell!
