Arlington Pet of the Week: Hank

Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week is Hank, a recently rescued 8- to 10-year-old mix from Puerto Rico.

Here’s what Hank’s parents had to say about his new life in Arlington:

Allow us to introduce Hank (aka Hankster, Hank the Tank when he burrows through the brush or Hanky Panky when he does something mischievous). Actually, it doesn’t matter what we call him because he is mostly deaf. An 8- to 10-year-old mix of basset/lab/bull terrier/who knows what, Hank has a mysterious history.

Until a few months ago, Hank was a sato, a street dog in Puerto Rico. He was found in a Home Depot parking lot, apparently hit by a car. The good people of Toby’s Rescue took him in and fostered him for two months. We saw him online and thought we could provide a nice retirement home for him.

Since coming to Arlington in early February, Hank has had his first experience with snow, ice, squirrels, foxes and deer. Despite all of these changes, Hank has been a great dog since his first day here. He’s met several other great dogs in the neighborhood and has a budding bromance with Romeo, his buddy next door. If you see us out for a walk, please say hi to Hank — you just might need to speak up a bit.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos — they don’t fit in our photo galleries!

We are also looking for local pets who look like their owners or like celebrities. Email us photos of your pet and their doppelgänger, explaining the resemblance and whether it has been noticed in your neighborhood.
