Hank, Foxhound/Chihuahua mix (1 y/o), 18th & 9th Ave., New York, NY • “His leash got caught in the elevator once and I got his harness off just in time. Saved his life. His best friend is named Nala and he does 10 log rolls every time he sees her.” A rescue from Georgia, via @muddypawsrescuenyc
Dolly, Australian Shepherd/Catahoula mix (2 y/o), Lafayette & Grand St., New York, NY • “She loves winning. We’ll play tug but she doesn’t find it fun unless she wins. She’s a rescue from Georgia and is named after Dolly Parton, the Southern belle.” @thedarlingdolly, a rescue from @inourhandsrescue
Jimmy, Standard Poodle (2 y/o), 2018 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, New York, NY • “He’s really outgoing – loves people. Their haircut is designed to keep the joints warm while hunting – hips, ankles – and it helps when swimming. Their coats are also very water resistant. When they shake the water rolls right off of them.”
Emmy, Harrier (4 y/o), 2018 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, New York, NY • "They’re one of the oldest breeds recognized by the AKC, but they’re not popular and I don’t know why. They were bred down from the English Foxhounds to be a size that could be followed on horseback or on foot during a hunt. It didn’t matter if you were upper-class or lower-class – you had a Harrier.”
Bode, Lula, Heidi, Onyx, Malibu, & Wilson • Dogs of @therockettes, New York, NY • "This is my first Christmas Spectacular season having Bode – coming home from long rehearsals and performances was so much better knowing he was there waiting for me." - "Lula's left eye does whatever it wants." @lulagram.nyc - "Heidi was 'that puppy in the window' at an @animalhaven event." #themightyheidi - "Onyx can stand on her hind legs for a minute at a time and jump. I'm a big jumper, too." - "If you ever call Malibu a bad dog she will push her face against your mouth so you can no longer speak." - "Wilson was found in a ditch in Arkansas. They think he was born on Halloween, which is also my birthday, so I thought we must be soulmates."
