Dogs are everywhere in this part of Buffalo; Did you notice?
I am proud to say that I have owned a dog since I was seven years old. My first dog was a German Schnauzer named Duncan, who was always by my side.
Then I owned a high-stringed Jack Russell Terrier, named Oliver; who always wanted to play and never stopped. He was perfect for me in high school.
My parents still own a maltipoo named Kasper, full of energy and always happy.
Now my fiancée and I are the proud owners of a pit-bill/beagle mix, named Odessa. He is a rescue dog that we adopted from the SPCA Serving Erie County. She is the best decision we have ever made and we cannot imagine our life without her.
In the spring, summer and fall, we walk in Odessa in the neighborhoods of South Buffalo, and I don’t know if anyone else has noticed, but South Buffalo is almost like the dog capital of Buffalo and in the surrounding suburbs.
There are many dog-friendly apartments, and many owners have dogs. Seriously, everywhere we go in the part of South Buffalo near Abbott Road and McKinley, there are dogs on every corner.
I grew up in North Amherst and lived in Hamburg. There are also a lot of dogs there, but I’ve never seen so many dogs in one area, like I do with South Buffalo.
South Buffalo is a great neighborhood for restaurants and bars. and great for someone in their 20s or 30s, but also amazing for dog owners.
