“Going on these walks makes it able to see how pushing through her challenges has paid off.

Our walks are a mutual understanding of what we do in the morning and represent the respect we have for each other, as well as her accomplishments.

It’s a great way to spend the morning and we both love it.

Joy Rides is an amazing organization.

They transported Bailey and hundreds of thousands of other dogs from kill shelters in the south and bring them up north for adoption.”

“Bailey finally understands that I run.

She does her own thing, but always catches up with me.

It’s so much fun to see the progress that she’s made.

It was hard for her to adjust to living in the city coming from a shelter in Texas.

She had bad separation anxiety.

We worked with a trainer, took classes, and it required a lot of patience.”

“We took her home that day.

She is great in the city, but was originally saved from a kill shelter in Texas.

Bailey is the focal point of our family.

Everything we do revolves around her.

Now that we’ve had her for almost a year, she has settled into our daily routine.

My favorite think to do, is go for our early morning walk in Central Park, where she is off-leash.”

“I’ve always volunteered for different animal organizations.

Guiding eyes for the blind was one, and more recently, Bad Ass Brooklyn Rescue.

Working with the rescue animals inspired me to adopt a rescue dog.

I followed a number of rescue organizations on Instagram and saw an image of Bailey on See Spot Rescued, and I fell in love with her.”
