Reston Pet of the Week: Paco

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is from another proud, local pet owner, which means he is not available for adoption.

Meet gentle giant Paco. Here is what owner Amy has to say about him:

As funny as it sounds, Paco adopted our family several years ago. After staying at our house while his original owner was gone, he fit seamlessly into our large household. Most importantly, his sister Kenya, a Rhodesian Ridgeback loved his company. When his owner was unable to take care of him, we were thrilled to welcome him permanently to the family.

Paco is more than we could have asked for.  His freckled pink nose, floppy ears, and lap-dog mentality are hard to beat. Whether barreling though the house with his slimy ball, or attempting to share a chair with someone — thinking he is much smaller than he actually is — he is a great supply of laughter and joy in our lives.  His pastimes include swimming in the lake, playing fetch and rolling in the mud. However on cold days, he enjoys cuddling near the fire with his humans.

Paco has been a great addition to our family and is the perfect example that pit pulls can in fact be loving and sweet family members too.
