The pugs of East Seventh Street

I’ve seen New York tenement stoops flanked by carvings of lions, dragons, grotesques, even topless women.

But I haven’t seen many dogs—like this little pug (and his buddy on the left side of the stairs, not pictured), both in repose outside a tenement in the East Village.

Someone give him a new coat of paint….

    I love these pugs…while walking by the other night, I noted to myself that these are probably the only lounging dog decorations I’ve seen. Other creatures are usually sitting upright, so I wonder what the history is behind these pups.

    […] not cuddly critters; they look rather menacing actually. For more dogs of New York City, meet the East Village pugs, guarding a tenement on East Seventh Street. Share this:TwitterLike this:LikeBe the first to like […]

    I want to reach out and pet his head…I’m so glad he has “survived”.
