Are you looking for a new soul-mate? Well look no further. My name is Maddie and I am the Dog of the Week for Arlington Animal Services. People say I' m a real "cutie-pie", and they just love my puppy kisses! Although I' m a little guy, I have a big heart! The shelter is a scary place for a little guy like me, but when I' m in your arms, I' m just as comfy as can be! I love to nuzzle and cuddle with my human visitors. Volunteers say I' m a gentle little man who takes treats gently and I even sit for them! Although I don' t understand why humans get so excited about that. Do you? At only one month of age, I don' t really know any commands, however I sure would like to learn what they are. I guess that means we would have to spend lots of time getting to know each other which is just fine by me. I know I love to be with people and would be so happy to spend time with my new forever family. Animal Services Center employees believe I am a Shepherd mix and will be a medium size dog. So, if you have a yard to play in and like to go for walks, I bet we would become great friends! Did you know that in the canine world, Shepherd dogs are really smart and loyal family dogs? Well they are! If your family is looking for a handsome young puppy like me, please come down to Arlington Animal Services today and meet with me! Adoption fees include all core vaccinations, spay/neuter, micro-chip and 30 days pet insurance. Oh, and the best thing is, when you adopt at Arlington Animal Services they offer two free training sessions for puppies like me! I am located in kennel DC3, ID number A20314351. It' s time for me to take a nap now. All this modeling stuff is exhausting for a puppy! I hope to meet you soon! Your new best friend... Maddie!
