The Dogist

Andrew, Eurasier (13 y/o), Bleecker & Charles St., New York, NY • "There are very few Eurasiers in the U.S. We acquired him from the clinic at JFK airport. He got lost in shipping. We've had him for 12 years and he has two big brother Italian Mastiffs. He walks around with two security guards."

The Dogist

Rowdy, Labrador Retriever (13 y/o), Canby, OR • "He's declining a bit, but there were many times he should have died. He's been shot by a cop, survived a poisoning, has had a tumor removed from his ear and the wrong tooth pulled. He's got some dementia, senior bladder, and barks for no reason. He still acts like a puppy sometimes, too. And he still smiles." @white_eyed_rowdy (Pt. 2 of 2)

The Dogist

Rowdy, Labrador Retriever (13 y/o), Canby, OR • "He has vitiligo. I've seen other dogs that have it, but never so symmetrical. His belly and toenails turned white too (he used to be all black). He's the ambassador for the American Vitiligo Research Foundation and has built some relationships with kids with vitiligo who may have been bullied because of it. He's also gone kind of viral. He was on the front page of Reddit for days. They said he looks like Spider-Man, Deadpool, The Hamburgler, Spawn, Venom, Kiss, an orca whale, reverse panda, fried eggs...some people think we bleached his eyes. There should be a movie about his life." @white_eyed_rowdy (Pt. 1 of 2; see IG story for Rowdy memes)

The Dogist

Junior, Pit Bull/Coonhound mix (5 y/o), S 3rd & Burnside St., Portland, OR • "He's my service dog. He keeps me sane. I have bad anxiety and depression. He keeps me out of trouble because I worry about him. He needs me."

The Dogist

Zeus, Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier mix (5 y/o), NW Davis & Park Ave., Portland, OR • "He's gotta make sure everyone sees him. He thinks he's the biggest dog in the world."

The Dogist

Neo, Great Dane (5 y/o), S 4th & Burnside St., Portland, OR • "His full name is 'Neo there is no spoon' (a Matrix reference). You caught him in time because he has cancer – lymphoma. He's on chemo and in remission. I've had German Shepherds my whole life, but he's the most protective. He's like Secret Service – the only thing he's missing is the ear piece. He's my forever dog; I'll be buried with him. He's the only dog I've ever said that about."

The Dogist

Bailey, Great Pyrenees mix (9 m/o), Sewallcrest City Park, Portland, OR • "He can't really stand up while sitting on a wood floor. His front paws always slide forward. He also squeaks when he yawns."

The Dogist

Faye, Great Pyrenees (9 m/o), Sewallcrest City Park, Portland, OR • "She's very stubborn – if she wants to do something, she's going to do it."

The Dogist

Diego, Pit Bull mix (1 y/o), Sewallcrest City Park, Portland, OR • "He likes to chew sticks more than playing with other dogs."

The Dogist

Wisdom, German Shepherd (3 y/o), 2017 CES, Las Vegas, NV • "She's my second Seeing Eye dog. My first dog, Barbie, was long-legged and slender (as her name would suggest). I lost my sight when I was seven. I was shot. We had a family German Shepherd named Kim at the time, and when I got back home from the hospital, Kim figured out there was something wrong and would protect me. I was a cane user until I was thirty, but it's nice to have a companion; someone else in the house. I won't take her to a concert – it's too loud. That's the only disadvantage. Oh, and canes don't shed." – blindconnect.org, @theseeingeye

The Dogist

K-9 Ferrah, Belgian Malinois (4 y/o), 2017 CES, Las Vegas, NV • "She's a member of the Elite Tactical Security K-9 unit. She also does Mondioring, Irondog, AKC – she's got a lot of titles under her belt."

The Dogist

Anarcha, Chihuahua (3 y/o), Molasky Family Park, Las Vegas, NV • "She's named after 'anarchy' – no means no – without consent, she bites. She's a rescue from a shelter and was on a kill list because she wasn't socialized. She's crazy, but she warmed my heart. We did a road trip from here to New York, and she would sleep on my chest in the car. Everyone's a little damaged."

The Dogist

Scruffy, mix (15 y/o), Molasky Family Park, Las Vegas, NV • "He's always been camera shy. He's very smart, but he's just getting old."

The Dogist

Jack, Boxer (9 y/o), Molasky Family Park, Las Vegas, NV • "He was a friend of mine's dog. They bought him a Boxer after his previous Boxer passed away, but then my friend eventually passed away. Jack watched over him for a while after he had a stroke."

The Dogist

Rocky, Shepherd/Husky mix (3 m/o), Molasky Family Park, Las Vegas, NV • "He likes to hide himself and take naps."

The Dogist

Ike, Belgian Malinois (4 y/o), 2017 CES, Las Vegas, NV • "We call him a 'public safety officer', and he's fully capable."
