A feud over Bella and Daisy — pit bulls rescued from euthanasia by socialite Jean Shafiroff rescued — is raging on the Upper East Side. Shafiroff’s neighbor, Andrea Baz, accuses the pups of being a menace to Park Avenue society, according to Page Six.
Baz claims the pit bulls attacked Mona Lisa and Chanel — her cocker spaniels — on East 64th Street. “They were off the leash, loose and wild. I had to kick them,” Baz told the Post. “They are very dangerous dogs.”
Shafiroff, who is a prominent philanthropist and a fixture on the gala circuit, isn’t denying that Daisy got loose and gave her neighbor’s pets a nip. But she claims there was no real harm done. “There was a tiny red spot on an ear — no blood,” Shafiroff, the wife of Barclays investment adviser Martin Shafiroff said. “They are so sweet. They don’t bother anyone.”
Now Shafiroff fears Baz may try to crash the July 18 fundraiser for the Southampton Animal Shelter she is hosting at her apartment. She is reportedly considering hiring special security.
But perhaps Shafiroff needn’t worry, as it seems Baz’s pampered pet’s are jet-setting off to their pied-à-terre in Paris.
“A week at Chateau de la Messardiere, three weeks cruising the Med aboard [the] 70-meter mega-yacht Lady S,” Baz told the Post. “And then to Venice at the Presidential Suite at Belmond Cipriani.” [NYP] – Christopher Cameron
