Lombardi (previously known as Paulie) was discovered by NYC Animal Care & Control as an abandoned and starved stray in Central Park. Even with an adorable mug shot on Petfinder.com, he was an older dog with minimal sight and no hearing, so Lombardi's future was certainly in the balance. After being rehabilitated and adopted through People for Animals, he now lives in a loving home on Madison Avenue, and his incredible personality has won the hearts of his mother's coworkers. He frequently spends his weekdays "at work" in her office, and he has taken the initiative of professional client greeter on behalf of the entire event planning firm. Recently, Lombardi received an exclusive invitation to a dog-friendly industry event where he met dog training celebrity, Victoria Stilwell. Interestingly enough, this meet-and-greet took place in the penthouse of the Omni Berkshire Hotel near his old stomping grounds in Central Park. A Cinderella story indeed!
