Tempted to get a dog but know that you can't look after it? Then don't come to Berlin. 3 months of living in Berlin and you'll be cooing over the thousands of dogs in the streets. 6 months in and you'll be googling potential breeds that you might be interested in and 9 months in you'll be waking up at 6 in the morning, going down 5 flights of stairs with your little plastic bag and desperately trying to pick up your new dog's poop; or you won't, you'll be leaving it for others to step in, hey, it's Berlin.
Basically, Berlin is full of dogs. Full. of. dogs. I'm still at the cooing stage and loved my playdate with Überlin's French bulldog, Olive. I am, however, very close to deciding on my ideal dog (it's a big white doofus dog, if you're wondering).
Dogs are not the only animals that populate the Berlin streets and waterways though. Here are a few more that you'll catch in the parks and along the canals. Missing from this list is the urban fox as I have yet to see my first Berlin fox. As soon as I do, I'll be sure to update you.
