Arlington Pet of the Week: Leif

Say “hi” to our latest Pet of the Week, Leif, a 4-month-old rescue who’s adjusting quite well to her life here in Arlington.

Here’s what Leif’s owner had to say about her:

Leif, meaning “dearly loved,” is named after her owner’s first puppy who sadly passed at just 14 weeks. This energetic girl is a 4-month-old rescue from Mississippi who is ready to take on the world!

She enjoys exploring the streets of Arlington and saying “hi” to everyone she encounters — humans and dogs alike! She loves the neighborhood and all of the furry friends she gets to meet on her daily walks. Her favorite things to do are dig in the grass and pick up sticks to chew.

She is praying for more snow in the forecast and loves eating and rolling around in the fresh powder!
