The Dogist

Josie, Pit Bull mix (6 y/o), Front & Fulton St., New York, NY β€’ "She likes to lock herself in a room so that we have to rescue her – she likes the attention. Also, if one of us goes away, she's passive aggressive towards them when they get back. She's a rescue from @animalhaven."

Lucy, Ori-Pei (15 m/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY β€’ "She ate an entire tube of my oil paint. It was all over her mouth and legs when I got out of the shower. We had to squirt hydrogen peroxide in her mouth and she threw up all over the rug. It was scary. She was pooping yellow for days."

Carmen, Chihuahua (1 y/o), Lafayette & Jersey St., New York, NY β€’ "She's a therapy dog and we just came from a corporate event. We help employees with stress, visit seniors in nursing homes, and visit cancer patients in hospitals. On Inauguration Day we went to a publishing house event in the city and most of the employees were really down. They said she was really what they needed. You never know what's going on with people. She spreads joy. I was once in the hospital and a little therapy dog visited me – it had such a profound effect. I got Carmen and thought I'd look into it and start training – my way of paying forward the good deed that was done to me."

Prowler, Field Spaniel (3 y/o), 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, New York, NY β€’ "They're a gentleman's hunter. They can go long hours in the deep brush – their big paws are designed for it. They can flush, retrieve, and track game. They're very rare – usually, less than 100 are born a year."

Phoenix, Standard Poodle (3 y/o), 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, New York, NY β€’ "These guys were bred to be hunting dogs – they would break ice and retrieve. Parts of their fur would be shaved to be more hydrodynamic and dry faster, while leaving fur on their feet and hips to keep their joints warm. The roots of this style was actually functional, but now we keep it up as the breed standard. If you look at paintings they used to look even more ridiculous – they had cords like a Puli."

Buzz, Belgian Tervuren (2 y/o), AKC Meet The Breeds 2017, New York, NY β€’ "He stands at attention when the cat goes by, but he'll also go outside and herd up to six sheep at once. He's also a therapy dog at a children's hospital."

Bandit, Nederlandse Kooikerhondje (5 m/o), AKC Meet The Breeds 2017, New York, NY β€’ "When you say, 'I have a Nederlandse Kooikerhondje', they say, 'Do you take medicine for that?' They're new to the sporting group this year. They were bred to walk down the side of Dutch canals and ponds and have birds follow them, like a Toller. Their tails are attention getters. The decoyman leaves food for the birds, the dog shows up, and the birds associate the dog with food. The dog then lures the ducks into a net trap, where they're brought to market for food. It's a 700-year-old trick. There are still four traps being used in Holland, though they now just band the birds for flight research."

Isabella, Labrador Retriever (7 m/o), AKC Meet The Breeds 2017, New York, NY β€’ "She's a return – her folks got sick, so I have her until they're better. She's a sweet little dog. She's sitting on Faith, who's lazy."

Kwispel, Keeshond (2 y/o), AKC Meet The Breeds 2017, New York, NY β€’ "'Kwispel' is a Dutch name that means 'wag' – her rear end was going constantly. They're natural watch dogs and used to watch the barges in Holland and Germany. You'd have all of your possessions under a tarp and you'd put a dog on top of it – they would sound off so you wouldn't get your boots stolen."

Prime, Rottweiler (2 y/o), AKC Meet The Breeds 2017, New York, NY β€’ "He's a therapy dog and a goofball – he makes cancer patients smile. He's a 118-lb ham."

Snowball, Wolf hybrid, Washington Square Park, New York, NY β€’ "He's recovering his health and ability to walk; he required months of hydrotherapy. His temperament is different than any other wolf dog – he's social and outgoing, does outreach work, activism, modeling, and acting. He now lives between California, Florida, and New Jersey. His favorite person besides his mother is an autistic child he met and befriended. His paternity is unknown, but we had a sanctuary take a look at him and he is most likely a low high-content wolf." @snowballthewolf

ZZ, Maltipoo (8 y/o), 2017 NY Pet Fashion Show, New York, NY β€’ "She's fresh from Russia. – very Doctor Zhivago. She just started her own little blog called ZZ Talks, where she spills the tea on the dress up dog community. We talk about what's really going on – who has a crush on who. There's a lot of humping going on."
