Meet Bailey


Introduce us to Bailey. 

Bailey is a 2.5 year old Mini Australian Labradoodle. She was born in Duxbury, MA but has lived in Manhattan since she was 8 weeks old.  Bailey is a very sweet girl who loves to play, snuggle, make new friends, and go on adventures in the city.  

How long has Bailey been visiting Madison Square Park? 

Bailey has been visiting Madison Square Park since Jemmy’s Dog Run reopened last year. 

What are some of Bailey’s favorite things to do when she visits the park? 

As soon as Bailey recognizes the path we are walking she can’t get to the park quick enough! After she plays at Jemmy’s Dog Run, Bailey loves to walk through the park then sit on a bench to have a snack and rehydrate while watching the dogs and people before we head home. 

Does Bailey have any friends in the park?

Bailey is a social butterfly! She makes new friends every time she visits. She always takes a couple laps around the dog run to visit with the humans too.

Has Bailey been enjoying Jemmy’s Dog Run since it reopened last year?

Bailey loves visiting the new dog run. Her visit to Jemmy’s Dog Run is not complete without zoomies around the hill! 

If Bailey could tell the visitors of Madison Square Park one thing, what would it be?

Take advantage of this beautiful space! You can make it whatever you want or need it to be. Bailey especially loves all the beautiful flowers that bloom in spring.
