Welcome to Dogs of Downtown where we showcase our wonderful four-legged friends who live and visit the Downtown Los Angeles area.

Downtown Los Angeles is home to more than 13,000 dogs who live in lofts, apartments, houses and hotels. As Downtown continues to expand and grow, so too will the number of pets. Downtown Los Angeles is unique in that most lofts and residential buildings allow dogs - most without breed/weight restrictions. This attracts many people who own or wish to own a dog to move into the area. Couple that with the increasing number of world class restaurants, activities and nightlife and it becomes clear why Downtown is one of the most desireable and fastest growing areas in Los Angeles.

Dogs of Downtown strives to show-off our incredible diverse mix of dogs who walk the streets, play in the parks and hang out at restaurants. We hope you enjoy it!

Riley - Akita

Riley is one of those Downtown Dogs who knew everybody and everybody knew him.  He moved to Mt. Washington early this year and downtown is a bit emptier for it.   Riley was not only a sweet boy, but the apple of his mom's eye.  They truly loved each other.  Sadly, Riley passed away peacefully last week, with his mommy right by his side.  Riley lived a good, happy long life of 13 years and left everyone with wonderful memories of his sweetness.  We will all miss him - but most of all we are so thankful for having known him.

  1. This is a very nice memorial to an absolutely wonderful dog. Riley is in many ways one of the best definitions of what it means to be a Downtown Dog. He made our neighborhood better just by being a part of it.
