Chicago Shop Dogs We Wish Were Ours

It's no secret that Refinery29 is staffed with some serious animal lovers, so when we noticed that Chicago's got an impressive litter of adorable dogs handling business in local boutiques, we couldn't resist turning our lenses on them. We stalked Chi-town shops to find canines of all shapes, sizes, and breeds, and brought them together for an all-out cute-fest. Learn which of our fave boutiques and businesses have four-legged friends on staff, then go say woof hi and tell 'em we sent you.
Oh, and don't forget to share that puppy love. Where do you go dog-spotting in Chicago? Tell us about your favorite shop dogs (and cats?) in the comments!

Meet Harpo, the shop dog at The Antique Jewelry & Resale Shoppe, one of our all-time favorite places to hunt for new statement jewelry. Harpo is a standard poodle, and he's very good at holding still for the camera. Good boy.

Just kidding. That face! Eli is one of the most friendly (and oddly intelligent) dogs ever. Hang with him the next time you're plowing through a pile of freelance work.
