Archie, Chihuahua (2 y/o), Spring & Lafayette St., New York, NY • "He's a strange boy from Puerto Rico. He destroys the carpet – there are three big chunks missing." @archiestephenson
Biggie, English Bulldog (2 y/o), Prince & Mulberry St., New York, NY • "We both love snacks and napping – we have similar interests. I've been walking him for six months now. I grew up in Minnesota and always had a dog in the family. When I moved to New York I lived in a shoe box and couldn't have my own dog, so being a walker has been amazing. He's very stubborn – if you want to go one way he'll always want to go another way."
Franklin, Retriever mix (12 w/o), East Village, New York, NY • "He's my fifth foster dog. He spent his entire life so far in a shelter in South Carolina – within the last 24-hours he was transported up here and separated from his littermates, so he's a little confused. It's like having a part-time baby. You have the dog for the hardest but cutest phase of life and when it gets adopted it's equally sad and a relief. I can unroll my rugs and be a normal person again. Anyone who wants to get a dog should foster first. You can be a puppy parent for five days and test the waters." @unleashednyorg
Glee, Golden Retriever (9 w/o), Union Square, New York, NY • "We put down plastic rug protectors and she's peed on every one. We've only been getting four hours of sleep, but she's a ball of love so we're ok with it." @goldens_glee
(TBD), Australian Shepherd mix (1 y/o), 23rd & 11th Ave., New York, NY • "We just rescued him from @muddypawsrescuenyc – he's from Kentucky. We haven't come up with a name yet. Any suggestions?"
Bowie, Eurasier (11 m/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • "He's the only Eurasier in NYC – they were originally barge guard dogs and were bred as a cross between a Chow and a spitz breed to get a friendlier Chow." @goodbowie
Miloh, "Comfort Retriever" (1 y/o), Chelsea Waterside Park, New York, NY • "He's kind of a player. He's got a few girlfriends." @comfortretrievernyc • Happy St. Patrick's Day! ☘️
Gizmo, Maltese/Pomeranian/Shih Tzu mix (8 y/o), 14th & Broadway, New York, NY • "She's the 'littlest bookseller' at Strand Books. She's best known for her ears." @newyorkdog
