Arlington Pet of the Week: Monty

Say hello to Monty! This fluffy 10-year-old is Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week. Monty is an avid adventurer who is loved by his humans.

His owners had a few words to say about him:

Meet Monty! He was rescued from California and has lived with his human family for about 5 years now in Arlington.

Like most dogs, Monty’s favorite pastime is napping, a hobby that he has truly perfected over the years. When not napping, he can be found exploring every nook and cranny of the parks around town. But more than anything, he loves a good car ride! Head out the window, paws up, wind whipping through his fur; that’s what life is truly all about for Monty.

Although Monty turns 10 years old this month, he still acts and looks like a puppy. He may be a little timid at first around new folks; however, he warms up quickly (yummy treats especially help).

Moreover, instead of playing with normal dog toys, Monty loves to grab his humans’ socks and run around the apartment for a game of chase.

An avid adventurer, Monty loves exploring local and regional hidden gems. He loves going sunbathing at the Chesapeake Bay, not to mention the crabbing! His other favorite activity is running down the hall to fetch his favorite ball at top speed. Monty is not an average dog and his humans absolutely love him!
