Hi, My name is Paul and I have had rescued three dogs since 1997. I had a large Bull Mastiff / St. Bernard mix named Veego that passed away at around 15 in 2012. I have had a German Shepherd since 2005, Honey is currently 14 years old. I have also had a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Ben since 2007 that is about to be ten. I have pet sat for lots of friends in the past. Pitbulls, Rotweiller, Labradors, Boxer, Pug, Chihuahuas, French Bulldog, and a few Terriers. Seeing any dog always puts a smile on my face, from abandoned rescues to show dogs. I enjoy learning their unique personalities and quirks. I will treat your dog (and home) like I do my own, with love and care. I've also been vegetarian / vegan for over 25 years and like to stay active. Reliable transportation for North Shore and Boston.

Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Natick from California where I was a dog walker for five years. I grew up in rural NY, we always had at least two dogs plus a bunch more critters. I recently graduated from Humboldt State University were I studied wildlife biology so I can help save all the animals. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!
