Arlington Pet of the Week: Luna

Meet this week’s Arlington Pet of the Week, Luna, a 3 year old rescue who enjoys long walks and lounging in the sun.

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

My mommy adopted me from a wonderful rescue organization called Operation Paws for Home when I was just one year old. She was what they call a Foster Failure! I must have mesmerized her with my caramel eyes and endless puppy kisses. Even though I was underweight, Heartworm Positive, and timid, my mom immediately new I was the perfect dog.

As excited as I was to be in my new home, it took me a while to adjust to my new life. I had bad separation anxiety and wasn’t too sure about strangers. I also discovered scary monsters living in my new home, like the evil toaster and ice cube maker. After I started to settle in, my mom decided to send me to puppy bootcamp. She said bootcamp would help my confidence and teach me cool tricks! Oh boy, was she right! I mastered the sit and stay command and my mom even taught me some super cool tricks like “Give me a Kiss” and my favorite, “Avada Kedavra”, which is when I dramatically play dead. I actually got so good at playing dead that I’ll do it without being asked and randomly collapse in public!

I’m now three years old but everyone still mistakes me for a Black Lab puppy. It must be my cute puppy eyes and small stature! My mom thinks I’m part Lab, Italian Greyhound, and Fruit Bat. Some of my favorite hobbies include long walks around Arlington, hogging the bed, sun bathing, and jumping into people’s arms. My mom swears I can jump 5 feet high and should consider a career as an Olympic Pole Vaulter. I love meeting new four-legged friends but sometimes I forget how to play like a dog. I like to crouch down, then spring around like a bouncy ball! My play tactics usually end up confusing my friends, but I’m sure I’ll learn how to do it right one day!
