The Rule States That Dogs On The Subway Must Be In A Carrier…But It Doesn’t Say How Big


In NYC, canine companions are only allowed on the subway if they’re safely stowed in carriers. While the rule is clear, it does not specify a size limit on said dogs.

Lucky for this Husky, his dad has a giant tote for such occasions, as well as the muscle and willingness to carry the sizable pooch around.


According to Bored Panda, CBS producer Alex Romano snapped the photo, which has given many people a chuckle. And as it turns out, this guy isn’t the only one to heave a heavy dog around in big bag (on the NYC subway, and otherwise)!
