Arlington Pet of the Week: Penny

Meet Penny, Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week. Penny is a 1.5-year-old Great Pyrenees mix who’s very active around town.

Here’s what Penny’s human had to say about her life in Clarendon:

Penny is an inquisitive and adventurous 1.5-year-old Great Pyrenees mix who spends her days prowling the confines of James Hunter Dog Park and her nights overseeing the bustling streets of Clarendon from the balcony of her North Garfield Street high-rise. A ferocious fluff ball originally from the streets of West Virginia, Penny has thrived as a NOVA resident since being adopted from City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties in August 2019.

You might see her chasing squirrels at the 11th Street Park, going on runs down Key Blvd or getting compliments on her looks outside of Starbucks while her human dad gets his daily dose of caffeine. When she’s not exploring Arlington, she can be found upside down with paws up on the couch while listening to NPR.

Penny also isn’t afraid to flash her puppy eyes in hopes of coaxing her easily manipulated human parents into sharing some of their vanilla ice cream or Pupatella pizza crust. Just don’t try to cut her nails, give her a bath or take a stick from her. Otherwise, you might fall victim to her earth-shattering baritone bark.

Her kind, caring nature and heart-melting head tilts have made her a fan favorite at all socially distanced hangouts. Her countless Zoom appearances have prepared her well for this long sought-after Arlington Pet of the Week honor.
