Arlington Pet of the Week: Riley Finn

Meet Riley Finn, Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week. He’s a friendly 12-year-old Labrador-Rottweiler mix.

Here’s what Riley Finn had to say about his life in Arlington Highlands:

Hi. My name is Riley Finn. Yes, mom named me after a character in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” I am a 12-year-old three-quarters Labrador and one-quarter Rottweiler mix. I have lived in Arlington Highlands since I was 12 weeks old. I was adopted from A Forever Home rescue. Mom couldn’t resist my “dinner plate” sized paws.

My most favorite pastimes are anything having to do with a tennis ball (catching, carrying, retrieving). I also enjoy hanging out on my front porch watching the world go by and scaring the heck out of delivery people.

I am super friendly and really well behaved. I like going to restaurants with mom and dad. One time I was so quiet and good that the waiter didn’t even notice I was there until the end of the meal. (Did I mention I’m 90 pounds and hard to miss?) Everyone comments on how handsome I am and that makes me happy.

My sister, Molly, taught me how to tell time before she went to doggy heaven. Now I know exactly when it’s time for dinner or my 9 p.m. treat, and I make sure everyone knows I am starving.
