Adirondack Dog Of The Week

Everybody loves the Adirondack Mountains! The small, quiet towns scattered throughout the six-million acre park makes the area pretty special. The countless lakes, ponds and rivers, hiking and biking trails, mountains and streams provide endless recreational opportunities, not to mention awesome scenery.

Do you know who loves the Adirondacks just as much as we do? (If not more!) DOGS!

Have a dog that loves the Adirondacks that you want to submit? Become a fan of the Adirondacks on Facebook and post your photo today! Upload it to our wall with some details (location of photo, breed, age, name of the dog, etc.) then check back weekly to see if your pup has made it as an Adirondack Dog of the Week!
