Arlington Pet of the Week: Tucker

Tucker, Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week, is obviously a cutie, but he’s a smartie, too. His dad is teaching him to talk with push-buttons!

Here’s what his dad had to say about Tucker’s life in Courthouse (which, if you see him around, be sure to stop and give him pets).

Tucker is a 9-week-old Golden Retriever who is quickly growing up! Tucker loves to explore his Courthouse neighborhood in Arlington while on walks with his dad. He also is very excited to meet any other dogs in the area that he encounters while outside.

Tucker loves bath time and always tries to get in the shower with others. He is obsessed with toys and playing fetch as well as tummy rubs while he lays on his back when he’s sleepy. He is currently starting training with push-buttons to be able to communicate with his dad in human words.

Feel free to say hello to Tucker and his dad if you see them out and about in the neighborhood on walks — he loves the attention!

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.
