Arlington Pet of the Week: Hambone

Say hello to Hambone, Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week! Hambone is an affectionate and grumpy fella who loves naps and treats.

Here’s what his owner had to say about him:

Hambone is a long-haired dachshund and basset hound mix.

He was surrendered to A Forever Home, a local animal rescue, at the age of 8 and at the weight of a whopping 57 lbs when his first owner passed away. Due to his old age and weight problems, he had no prospective adopters and was deemed an indefinite foster pet until he was adopted at the age of 10.

Now turning 17 in a couple months, Hambone is down to a healthy 25 lbs and lives with his owners and an adoptive sister named Casserole, a golden retriever and chow chow mix.

Hambone loves to sniff out treats, take naps in the sunroom, and howl along with ambulances or other loud noises. He has both the affectionate behavior of a hound and a grumpy personality befitting an old man. You can regularly see Hambone at New District Brewing Company in Shirlington.
