Meet the Real Shelter Dogs of New York!

Meet the Real Shelter Dogs of New York!

“Please don’t let it be about dogs.” “It’s about dogs.”

By Stacy Lenz

Much like how all drama comes back to Tom on The Real Housewives of New York, everything comes back to dogs here at Unleashed—and, oh, what dogs we have for you today. The Real Shelter Dogs of New York know how to live it up just like their Real Housewives of New York counterparts. (Except with less parties for Luann and Tom’s wedding, probably.)

Our dogs today come from Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption center, which just celebrated its 90th anniversary in April and focuses on saving all companion animals whose lives are in jeopardy. The shelter itself sits on six acres of wooded property in Huntington, NY, with amazing amenities for its furry friends—including a giant dog park! They even have a 110-acre sanctuary in upstate New York where dogs live in real rooms complete with couches, TVs, pictures on the wall, and a 2-acre pond to swim in. TBH, this sounds even better than Dorinda’s Berkshires house. Little Shelter definitely knows how to make it nice!

And now meet your Real Shelter Dogs, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines! (If you are interested in giving any of these adorable doggos a forever home, please visit
