Arlington Pet of the Week: Sugar

Meet the new Arlington Pet of the Week, Sugar, an 8 month old Jack Russell Terrier mix who loves belly rubs.

Here is what Sugar had to say about her life here in Arlington:

Hi there! I’m Sugar, an 8-month-old jack russell terrier mix living in Crystal City. I live with my two humans in an apartment building with some of my best puppo friends. The concierge staff gives me treats and I get to see my friends everyday and play as much as I want.

My favorite things are treats, belly rubs, and running circles around other dogs. I’m small, but fast! I came from NOVA Pets Alive and my humans have been obsessed with me ever since I arrived. I honestly don’t know what they did before they got me. I like to help cook by laying in the kitchen and catching crumbs. I’m a bit of a drama queen when I’m hot, but you would be too with fur in this humidity!

Arlington is the only home I’ve ever known and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There are so many people and pups, and I say hi to them all! So if you see me on the sidewalk, I will take all forms of praise and love.

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!
