The New York City Economic Development Corporation claims that there are 600,000 dogs in New York and the head of animal advocacy group WellBeing International calculates that there are about 80 million dogs in the U.S., a number that increases by one million every year. Pet ownership skyrocketed during the pandemic and is continuing to increase across the nation. Following a boom in families getting furry friends, searches for dog-friendly homes have also surged.
Here are five lovely listings that are perfect for New Yorkers and their pups.
