Arlington Pet of the Week: Fergus

Meet Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week, Fergus who is celebrating 10 years since being adopted.

Here is what Fergus’s owner has to say about life here in Arlington:

Fergus is a 10 year old diplodog who has lived in Jordan, the United Kingdom, and is moving to South Korea this summer.  When not making friends for the United States overseas, he calls Arlington home.

Fergus is happy dog who wears his heart on his collar — you never have to guess what he is feeling (hungry, usually hungry).  He loves hiking, swimming, traveling, eating, hiding bones from his cousin Samson, and eating.  He also likes to help around the house and is particularly adept at gardening (digging holes in the yard) and overseeing all food preparation and cleanup.  Dislikes include being woken up suddenly, skateboards/scooters, cats, and missed meals.

Fergus was adopted from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation 10 years ago this March.
