  Last modified on November 5th, 2018

If you’re a dog person (like me), then you must love running into dogs around your neighborhood. Perhaps it’s the fluffy Pomeranian you see in the elevator every morning. Or, the friendly Golden Retriever that sits next to you on the subway. One thing’s for sure, the Upper West Side has the cutest dogs out there! So we wanted to show them off and let you know where you can usually find them. Here are some of the cutest dogs on the Upper West Side!
