Going into 2020 was a hard year for Dalerys. Handling anxiety and being far from a family who lives in Puerto Rico can make life in New York City all the more overwhelming. Growing up, however, she’d turned to dogs to find comfort in her life.
When the city went on lockdown, Dalerys found the perfect companion to help her through the uncertainty, Archie. For Dalerys, Archie is much more than her pet dog. He’s the first step toward building her family in New York City.
Unlike many other dogs, Archie is terrified of the outdoors. As they both cope with anxiety, Dalerys and Archie are learning from each other. Dalerys wants to show Archie that he’s safe, and Archie has helped Dalerys realize that together, things are gonna be okay.
