Cutter, Golden Retriever (13 w/o), 2nd & Bowery, New York, NY • “He’s actually the perfect puppy – he entertains himself, chills out, and falls asleep all by himself.”


Mozart, Miniature Australian Shepherd (6 y/o), Madison Square Park, New York, NY • “He loves socks. He piles them in a corner.”


Riley, Golden Retriever (3 m/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “He destroyed my Adidas Ultraboosts. He’s one of a litter of twelve.” @rileythecitypup


Pepe, English/American Bulldog (4 m/o), 3rd & 1st Ave., New York, NY • “I live on the third floor and it takes like two hours to get up there. He protests and wants to be carried.”


Ruxin, “A lovin’ mutt” (11 m/o), D.B.A., New York, NY • “He’s my girlfriend’s dog. She’s a good cuddler but he’s the best dog cuddler I know.”


Finn, Dachshund (10 m/o), D.B.A., New York, NY • “He hoards toys under the bed – a graveyard of broken squeakers.” @finnminidoxie


Ghost, Border Collie (4 m/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “He skateboards. I left a skateboard out and he figured out how to do it.”


Cassini, Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix (8 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “We chose the name ‘Cassini’ because he’s got the blue eye dot and at the time the Cassini probe was being jettisoned into Saturn. He’s on his best behavior in public and steals things at home.” A rescue from @muddypawsrescuenyc


Gypsy, Golden Retriever/Chow Chow mix (8 y/o), Domino Park, Brooklyn, NY • “She has a super high emotional IQ but is super awkward. We call her ‘the thing that goes thump in the night’ – she falls off the bed at night.” A rescue from @animalleague


Boston, Beagle mix (8 m/o), Domino Park, Brooklyn, NY • “He eats really expensive trainers. Over $250 is his favorite.”


A note from @TheSatoProject - "The Sato Project team is overwhelmed with gratitude for the Dogist community for everything they have done to help us save more of our beloved satos. This support could not have come at more crucial time as we gear up to face another hurricane season. We are currently working extremely hard to rescue as many dogs as we can before any storms hit. Our next Freedom Flight scheduled for August will have over 100 dogs on board – the support from the #RescueRide campaign will help over 60 of Finn's cousins find their own happy endings. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you for helping to fight for the dogs of Puerto Rico and for believing that all dogs should have a chance at a life they deserve." The fundraiser will conclude end of day tomorrow (link in bio). Thanks to all who supported this effort 🙌


Venya, Shorkie (Shih Tzu/Yorkshire Terrier mix; 13 y/o), Domino Park, Brooklyn, NY • “She doesn’t like other dogs. She hops on the bench at the dog park.” @venyatheshorkie
