The Strand has over 200 employees, but one worker truly stands out from everyone else. Meet Gizmo, the canine employee (sort of) that occasionally makes an appearance at the Strand. As the dog of the Strand’s merchandise director Lisa Jee, she contributes to the Strand’s design team—and must sure be an expert! Gizmo, a nine-year-old maltese-pomeranian-shih tzu mix, is small enough to fit in the stacks, so be on the lookout for her the next time you’re there!

Oh, and follow her on Instagram @newyorkdog.
