Arlington Pet of the Week: Chai

Meet the Arlington Pet of the Week, Chai, a 9 week old Goldendoodle who loves running around his new yard here in Arlington.

Here is what Chia’s owner had to say about his young life so far here in Arlington:

Meet Chai (Yes, like the tea!), the 9 weeks old Goldendoodle  sauntering the streets of Bluemont who decided to drive all the way from Ohio and brighten the lives of his new family and neighborhood . Obviously, he is very picky about where he goes- He says he needs all his shots before he can venture out further!

Christened after his Indian parents’ favorite beverage, Chai comes with extra sugar. He’s a lover of his humans and a napping aficionado- always loves to cuddle first then retire under his favorite pieces of furniture. When not cuddling or waiting for his next meal, he loves to explore his territory around the house, become suspicious of random trinkets, and sleuth for treats.

He also loves zipping around the yard and pulling at grass as a form of daily exercise. He highly recommends it to all his furry friends!

15 year old Australian Shepherd went missing from her yard in Waycroft-Woodlawn on the evening of August 8.

A pet tracker hasn’t been able to find her, and despite roaming in a busy area, there have been no reported sightings. She is microchipped, and her information is up to date. It’s most likely someone has picked her up. If found, or if there is any information, please contact the Animal Welfare League of Arlington or her owner at 571-510-0508 or [email protected]. If spotted, please don’t approach or call to her, but take a picture and call her owner.
