This month, Exberliner turns the spotlight on pets in the city. We speak to new puppy parents about the boom in dog adoption during lockdown. Take a stroll with us through the history of domestication, delve into the flashy world of four-legged Insta stars and hear our readers’ anonymous pet confessions.
