Reston Pet of the Week: Flip

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Flip, a Black Lab Mix. Here is what owners Kristin and Joe have to say about him:

One year ago, we rescued Flip through City Dogs Rescue, which had saved him from a kill shelter in North Carolina right as his time was running out. He is calm and well behaved in the house, but definitely has his “crazy dog” side and loves to run around the yard like a wild maniac. His favorite things to do are to eat, play with other dogs and sit right at (or on) our feet. He likes to hang out wherever we are.

Flip is a smart dog with a freckled tongue who knows many words. He’ll tilt his head when we speak to him, and you’d better be careful if you say anything that sounds like “Do you want to eat?” He will immediately lick his chops and bark at you. Mention the words “walk” or “car ride” and you are also in trouble. We love everything about his enthusiastic attitude! Adopting him has made us appreciate life so much more.
