25 Confused Dogs: Best Head Tilts

October 26, 2018 The Dogist

1. Dr. Watson, Pembroke Welsh Corgi (8 m/o), Carl Schurz Park, New York, NY • “He’ll eat anything and just wants to play nonstop – with every person, every dog, everything. He’s like a four year old that you have to tell, ‘DON’T TALK TO STRANGERS’. You’ll hear about him on the news in six months because he took candy from a stranger.”

2. Django, Boxer (2 y/o), Spring & W Broadway, New York, NY • “She’s incredibly protective of my son, Skyler. If I scold him, she gets in between us and stares at me like I did something wrong. She looks at me like, ‘If you get closer, I’ll f*ck you up.’”

3. Rusky, Siberian Husky (2 y/o), Halifax Waterfront, Halifax, Nova Scotia, CAN • “He loves to run, but if you try to get him to fetch, he’ll look at you like an imbecile.”

4. Mojo, Jack Russell Terrier (4 m/o), Cape Split Trail, Scots Bay, Nova Scotia, CAN • “She’s a lap dog.”

5. Brooklyn, German Shepherd (4 m/o), Prince & Mercer St., New York, NY • “She’s very intelligent. She picked up ‘sit’ in like two seconds.”

6. Teddy, Norwich Terrier (4 y/o), Washington Square Park, New York, NY • “He’s more popular than me. People at the park know Teddy, but not me.”

7. Michou, Chow Chow (9 m/o), Union Square, New York, NY • “He’s a guard dog, and he takes his job very seriously. He sleeps at our elevator and paces our apartment all night.”

8. Bear, Labrador Retriever (3 y/o), South Cove Park, New York, NY • “He’s the George Clooney of the neighborhood.”

9. Honey, mix – Available for adoption from the Humane Society of Pulaski County, Little Rock, AR • “She’s ‘OE’ – 'over easy’. She always rolls over for belly rubs.”

10. Dante, Boxer (4 m/o), 10th & 1st Ave., New York, NY • “I think he’s going to be an awesome dog. I got him after my last Boxer, Luca, died suddenly from a heart attack after turning six. I used to run with him every day over the Williamsburg Bridge.”

11. Clover, German Shepherd (1 y/o), Pier 40, New York, NY • “Would you happen to have a bag? Thanks.”

12. Penny, Saluki (5 y/o), Piazza Mignanelli, Rome, Italy • “She was adopted from Ireland.”

13. Nova, Siberian Husky/Alaskan Malamute mix (4 m/o), Shelby Farms Dog Park, Memphis, TN • “She likes yarn. I crochet – if she gets it, it’s gone.”

14. Midnight, Labrador Retriever mix (5 y/o), Minetta St., New York, NY • “They took her eye out at two months, so that’s all she’s ever known. She’s not interested in chasing balls, only dogs who are chasing balls. She desperately wants to be friends with our cat, but the cat doesn’t like her.”

15. Blue, Cane Corso, 4th & Lafayette St., New York, NY • “She’s very purposeful about getting attention. If no one says hi to her after two blocks, she sits down and gives me a face. Adoration is her goal.”

16. Dante, German Shepherd (4 m/o), Charlton & 6th Ave., New York, NY • “We have a house in the country, so he’s used to going on the grass. He won’t pee on the street.”

17. 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.”

18. 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.”

19. Ivy, Shepherd mix (7 m/o), 17th & 5th Ave., New York, NY • “She’s a rescue from the Bahamas. She’s perfect – spoken from an unbiased dog owner.” @ivyxsota

20. Knightly, German Shepherd (1 y/o), Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY • “He’s a good kid. He tries really hard.”

21. Kirk, Terrier mix (2 y/o), Westhampton, LI • “He’s a rescue that came up from Florida after Hurricane Irma and will happily sit for you.”

22. Callie, Golden Retriever mix (2 y/o), Westhampton, LI • “Callie loves pretty much any person, place, or event. She’s definitely more than just her good looks.”

23. Murphy, Labrador Retriever (1 y/o), Totoredaca Dog Park, Mississauga, ON, CAN • “He loves the snuggles like you wouldn’t believe.”

24. Agnes & Gunner, English Bulldogs (3 & 4 y/o), Carmine & Bleecker St., New York, NY • “They’re brother and sister.”

25. Bear, Pomeranian (2 y/o), Central Park, New York, NY • “He tortures our cat, Lucy. He likes to pounce on her. But she gets the one up on him sometimes – her favorite thing is to get inside a bag and stick her paws out. It scares him. He doesn’t know what he’s looking at.”
