I am a recent college graduate who has spent almost all of my life living with dogs. My mother worked with different veterinarian facilities while I was growing up, so I've been exposed to all kinds of animals since I was young. I've raised various small and large dog breeds, and currently live with a Shih Tzu and Boxer. I've been a sitter for family and family friends in the past, and have loved spending time with different dogs.
