Introducing Gustavo!

The friendly dog of Mad. Friend Peter.

  1. Introduce us to Gustavo.
    Gustavo is a true New Yorker:  friendly, open-minded to all, and appreciative of a great city.
  2. How long has Gustavo been visiting Madison Square Park? And what does he like to do here?
    Gustavo considers Madison Square Park his backyard having started spending time there as a tiny puppy too small to jump onto the benches.  We credit the Dog Run with giving him his great social skills.
  3. Does Gustavo have any particular dog friends at the Dog Run?
    While Gustavo has a few regular friends at the Dog Run, truth be known, his greatest happiness is finding a new lap—and heart—to claim.
  4. If Gustavo could tell the visitors of Madison Square Park one thing, what would it be?
    Come often, wear your mask, and make sure you sit long enough for a visit from me.
