Taffy is an 11 year-old rescue beagle mix who currently lives in Midtown Manhattan. She’s the best guide in New York. She roams the city in her spare time and she’s in Central Park every single day. So the park is practically her front yard.
In fact, New York is her favorite city in the world, and Central Park is probably her favourite place. It’s a skip and a hop from her home after all.
And when she’s not patrolling Central Park, you’ll probably find her hanging out with the New York Police Department (NYPD). Yes, she’s a well-connected dog with friends in high places. So you know who to call if you find yourself in trouble in New York.
Taffy also loves window-shopping at New York’s best department stores. She’s often at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman’s, where she’s always welcomed like a regular. Just like every other true New Yorker, she’s a shopper and she’s always on the look-out for sales.
Taffy is known as the “official” Beagle Instagram tour guide of New York City. Her regular routine involves patrolling the city and going to the most famous places in Manhattan. Occasionally she’ll venture outside Manhattan too. We’ve seen photos of her across the bridge and tunnel, and even in the Bronx.
THE BEST GUIDE IN NEW YORK
Taffy has her own Instagram account, which she uses to introduce the best sightseeing spots in New York. These include unique spots only locals would know. She really is the best guide in New York. However, make sure you can keep up the pace if you plan to tour New York with her.
She’s created quite a following, too. People from around the world actually recognise her. Some have been known to shout “We love you, Taffy!” from passing cars when they spot her somewhere around Central Park.
If you do bump into her somewhere in New York, she’ll probably greet you with a quick jump. But that’s her way of asking how you are. So if you see her somewhere in New York, go up to her and say hello. She sure would love that. And maybe she’ll point you in the direction of her favorite bagel place too.
