Aspen, Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull mix (10 w/o), 9th & 3rd Ave., New York, NY • "We just got her – she's not responding to her name yet. She’s been great so far. She slept the first night in her crate." A rescue from the Carolinas via @unleashednyorg

Ruby, Basset Hound (2 y/o), Lafayette & Astor Pl., New York, NY • “She’s very lazy until she’s not – she acts naughty and rebels to get us to take her outside.”

Nicholas, Standard Poodle (5 y/o), 8th & University Place, New York, NY • “He doesn’t like dogs. He’s not social. He’s from Ohio and saw other dogs for the first time in NYC.”

Pascal, Whippet (4 y/o), Prince & West Broadway, New York, NY • “He hates the cold – he has no fat. His coats keep him warm.”

Billy, English Bulldog (2 y/o), 27th & 6th Ave., New York, NY • "He likes to knock over little children (he thinks he’s playing). He’s also stolen all of my baby’s toys. He’s an attention seeker and thinks everyone loves him."

Honey & Chocolate, Pomeranian/Border Collie mix & rabbit (1 & 7 y/o), Central Park, New York, NY • “Honey would rather have a ball than peanut butter. Chocolate likes to be outside eating grass all day.” @honeysbunniesnyc

Boss, Golden Retriever (2 y/o), 72nd & Central Park West, New York, NY • “He’s a medical alert service dog.”

Lola, Bergamasco Shepherd (10 y/o), Central Park, New York, NY • “People gasp when they see her. They call her ‘Dog Marley’. If we don’t get stopped 50 times a day in the park it’s a slow day. She’s hypoallergenic, so she doesn’t need to be bathed often, but it takes her two days to dry when we do bath her. She hates the bath. You’d think we were killing her when she gets a bath – the howling and whining. Their coats start matting between 9-15 months, and they become flocks – basically flat dreadlocks – and you have to tear them into the size you want. She’s loving this weather. The colder the better.” (Puppy photo provided by owner)

Augie, Fox Terrier (1 y/o), 24th & 6th Ave., New York, NY • "He’s a Hungarian farm dog rescue. He bounces like a kangaroo when he’s chasing something."

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Fester, Whippet/Hound mix (1 y/o), Union Square, New York, NY • "He's a major counter surfer. He once got a good batch of scones. He goes for his favorites (basically anything)." @fester_presents, a rescue from Biloxi, Mississippi via @doubledogrescue #gmktdogs

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Louise, Chow Chow (6 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • "She loves big bones – chews them completely down to nothing."

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Balou, Cocker Spaniel mix (10 y/o), Prince & Thompson St., New York, NY • "'Balou', like the bear from The Jungle Book. He howls when he hears sirens. You can hear him from miles away. Everyone’s like, 'I should have filmed him for YouTube!'"

Alphonse, Dalmatian (3 m/o), 4th & 2nd Ave., New York, NY • “He gets that going to the bathroom outside is good, but not that going inside is bad.”

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Asta, Kerry Blue Terrier (6 y/o), Houston & 6th Ave. New York, NY • “She’s named after the dog from ‘The Thin Man’ (1934). She enjoys chasing squirrels, skateboards, and cheese. High quality stinky cheese. She’s not usually this furry – this is her winter fuzz.”

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Milky, Bichon Frise (2 y/o), Prince & Lafayette St., New York, NY • "When I leave the house she chews my keyboard because she doesn’t like when I play computer games.”

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Sterling, Siberian Husky (2 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “He can be a little much.”

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Ace, Kishu (11 y/o), 9th & Ave A, New York, NY • “He’s very entitled – if he wants to play and we’re in bed he’ll pull the covers off of us until we get up. We tried a Gentle Leader collar when he was young and he laid in the middle of the sidewalk and yelled like we were hurting him. He’s an actor.”

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Foxy, Pembroke Welsh Corgi (7 m/o), Tompkins Square Park, New York, NY • “I’m a new dog owner so every day is an adventure. He’s very stubborn – living up to the Welsh personality.”

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Larry, Chow Chow/Golden Retriever mix (4 m/o), 9th & 2nd Ave., New York, NY • “We’ve only had him for a month and he’s been great. We have a fireplace and somehow he got past the gate and ended up completely black.” @eastvillagelarry – a rescue from @socialteesnyc

The Dogist (@thedogist)

Sophie, Beagle mix (2 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “She was Snoopy for a ‘Peanuts’ parody they did on The Tonight Show (@fallontonight) but she got cut. When she’s in the bag on the train she likes to lick people’s elbows.” @thisisadogdream
