Arlington Pet of the Week: Jazz

Let’s wish Jazz a happy birthday! This miniature dachshund turned 19 last week.

Here’s what Jazz has to say about her long life in Arlington:

Hi there. I’m Jazz, a miniature dachshund with chocolate dapple coloring. Sounds like a great ice cream flavor, right?

I was born in Louisiana when my soon-to-be parents saw a picture of me online and bought me through PayPal. I quickly hopped on a flight to DCA when I was 3 months old (as an unaccompanied minor) to join my new family in Arlington where I have lived ever since. I’ve visited a couple of the local dog parks, but the big dogs were just too much, so you most likely would have met me near my Arlington Forest home or in Lubber Run Park.

Can you believe I just turned 19 years old on March 19? I used to love retrieving balls, shredding stuffed animals and chasing squirrels. I even learned how to do a whole bunch of tricks, but those days have come and gone. In my old age, I’ve slowed down quite a bit, but I still get around OK. I will chase down a good-girl treat and can make my way up the ramp onto the couch where I like to burrow into a cozy blanket and root for the Capitals with my family.

Hope to see you around!
