This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Taliah, a two-year-old pit bull mix who’s being fostered in Arlington while she awaits a loving, adoptive home.
Originally from Philadelphia, Taliah is apparently not a fan of that city’s professional football team. Here’s Taliah in her own words, as relayed by her foster mom, Sarah.
Hi there! My name is Taliah and I am a two year old pit bull mix available for adoption from Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation. My foster parents sprang me loose from a Philadelphia shelter a few weeks ago and since then I have been living the life of luxury here in Arlington.
I am probably the laziest pit bull you will ever meet. I love snuggling up on human’s laps and I am content to spend hour after hour curled up on my dog bed watching the world go by. My other favorite things include peanut butter, rawhides & squeaker toys, carrots and my foster brother Copper (a very barky hound mix). Even though I am originally from Philly, I am a big New York Giants football fan (as you can see by the blue harness & leash combo in my pictures). My least favorite things are squirrels, bananas, cats and the Philadelphia Eagles.
My foster mom sometimes calls me Radar because I have these crazy ears that stand straight up. And when I get really excited my whole body wiggles (I just can’t help it). My foster parents suspect that I had a family before ending up in the shelter because I am “house ready” (whatever that means). I love my crate, often heading in there for afternoon naps and I know that all business is done in the great outdoors.
The Arlington Pet of the Week is sponsored by Dogma Bakery, which has locations at The Village at Shirlington (2772 S. Arlington Mill Drive) and the Lee Harrison Shopping Center (2445 N. Harrison Street).
