Arlington Pet of the Week: Charlie

Meet Charlie, a 4-year-old Pomapoo (a Pomeranian and toy poodle mix). As a puppy, he was full of mischief, but these days he mostly enjoys chasing his own tail, a good belly rub and lots of snuggles.

Here’s what Charlie’s human had to say about his life here in Arlington:

Say ‘hi’ to Charlie because he will certainly say ‘hi’ to you! Charlie is a 4-year old muppet (or, more technically, a Pomapoo) originally from Oklahoma.

As a puppy, he would get into all types of trouble! Most notably, he would break into his mom’s potting soil and try to plant all her shoes in it. He also lived for eating zippers — but only off his mom’s most expensive coats.

Through the years, Charlie has grown into a stand-up chap who loves to chase birds, squirrels and, most importantly, his own tail. His favorite activities include playing fetch, deconstructing stolen carrots and stealing toys from his Maltipoo brother, Ted.

He is always down for a good time or a good belly rub. Charlie is an expert snuggle buddy and a beloved part of his little family.
