Arlington Pet of the Week: Pancake

Give some love to Pancake, a 4-year-old Chihuahua/lab mix and Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week. You’ll often find Pancake curled up in a lap, begging for scratches.

Pancake’s mom sent along some more details about this sweet pup:

Pancake is a 4-year-old rescue I adopted right after some life-altering health issues. He is the absolute sweetest Chihuahua/lab (we think) mix and LOVES to sit in everyone’s lap while demanding butt rubs.

He was named after a children’s show, “Pancake Mountain,” which features punk rock musicians and a dog puppet. (Perfect, right?) Everyone knows him by name, and though he’s not the best guard dog, you can always count on him for extra kisses and snuggles!

Pancake recently became a big brother to my boyfriend’s two cats when we moved in together, and they’re all having the time of their lives! (Mostly, he barks at them, and they chase his tail, but it’s working!)

If you want to be friends or share some love, give Pancake a follow on Instagram!
