Gorda, Shepherd mix (17 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "She was my mom's dog, who passed away. She would go with her to do laundry in a shopping cart."

78💬

Bane, Boxer (5 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "He fights with other dogs. He beats them up – wrestles and boxes."

102💬

Bo, Border Collie/Springer Spaniel mix (3 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "The Springer in him is what gets him in the water. He's very leery of strangers."

113💬

Beowulf, Alaskan Malamute (3 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "He's a big brother to a 'non-fur' baby brother. He steals his binkies. He watched my car get stolen and he was like, 'Don't worry guys, she won't be up for another hour.'"

260💬

Beatrice, Shepherd mix (4 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "She loves chasing rocks. I'll throw her the ball and she'll come back with a rock. Her mother was killed when she was two weeks old. She was hit by a car. I had to bottle feed her just like a baby."

330💬

Shadow & Rogue, Labrador Retriever mixes (3 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "Shadow is super intelligent but someone f*cked with her – she's super shy. They're rescues from the same litter and they feed off each other's nervous energy. The outfits are good because people want to approach them more."

Lily, Alaskan Husky (1 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "She's not cool with the water yet. She doesn't like the waves."

Choco, Chihuahua/Dachshund mix (7 m/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "He got run over by a car and somehow survived."

276💬

Kila, mix (2 y/o), Rosie's Dog Beach, Long Beach, CA • "She's blind. She measures her space by going in circles. It took two months for her to figure out the stairs. She doesn't know which animals are which but she plays with every one of them." @blindymagoo

128💬

Tulip, Bedlington Terrier (13 y/o), Vine & Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA • "She's more like a cat than a dog. She broke her leg once by jumping off a chair. She still has a plate in there."

632💬

Theo, mix (6 m/o), N Gower & Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA • "He won't eat his food unless it's mixed with something real tasty. That's my fault." @nottheordinarypup

499💬

Phoebe, Chihuahua (2 y/o), Runyon Canyon Park, Los Angeles, CA • "She's a little brat – well behaved but barks at people."

267💬

Nala, mix (2 y/o), Runyon Canyon Park, Los Angeles, CA • "She's my boyfriend's roommate's dog and she was a stray. They shaved her the other day to cool her off – a little too short."

886💬

Joy, Doberman Pinscher (1 y/o), Runyon Canyon Park, Los Angeles, CA • "We got her at the pound – someone just dropped her off. She's a beautiful soul. Sweet and calm. Never barks."

254💬

Charles, Husky/Labrador Retriever mix (4 m/o), Runyon Canyon Park, Los Angeles, CA • "He's really calm except for today. I think it's all the other dogs."

952💬

Koda, Redbone Coonhound (3 y/o), Runyon Canyon Park, Los Angeles, CA • "He loves to chase lasers and moths. He won't eat them – he'll nip them and let them go so he can chase them again."

259💬

Max, Pointer/Border Collie mix (6 y/o), Grand Central Market, Los Angeles, CA • "He's mischievous. He just pretended to give me a hug and then stole food off the counter."

298💬

Nuki, Siberian Husky (4 m/o), Grand Central Market, Los Angeles, CA • "She gives kisses to each of us first thing in the morning." @nukiinthecity

Nick, Dachshund (6 y/o), Waverly & Greene St., New York, NY • "He's the old man of the group."

820💬

King Bentley, English Bulldog (2 y/o), Bryant Park, New York, NY • "We just moved to Miami and I always get nervous that he's too hot, especially because his breed is prone to overheating. Sometimes he'll be panting and I don't know if it's normal bulldog behavior or something to be worried about. To have the @LinkAKC collar that alerts me when it's too hot takes away a lot of the worry." #DogSpeak #LinkAKC #ad

Red, Boxer (7 y/o), Lucky Dog – Bedford Ave., Brooklyn, NY • "I found him and his sister drinking melted snow out of a pothole in Ohio. When we first brought him here we had to muzzle him. He's come a long way but he's definitely got some screws loose. His sister found a home, too."
