I met this sweetheart, and his human, outside of Whole Foods one warm evening.
Dog: Angus Phineas Fernald is a four and a half year old, rescued Lab / Pit mix. He’s originally from South Carolina but his humans got him from a rescue in New Hampshire. “He was just a babe…I picked him up at 3 months old.” Angus also goes by AP, Turtle, and Bubba.
Human: Angus lives with Alissa and Derek, between the Forest Hills and Green Street T stops. And they are all brand new to J.P.! “Derek is his best friend (because Alissa is the rule enforcer!!!)”

What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?

Anything else you’d love to share about your J.P. Dog?
“I love this dog so much, I have a tattoo of his initials!”
Your J.P. Dog’s favorite outdoor spots in J.P.?
“The dog run next to the T tracks between Green and Stony Brook stations as well as the circle by the high school at the end of McBride/Child St on the Southwest Corridor. He also REALLY loves taking a dip in Jamaica Pond!”
