“I always cry a little when I leave your dog”

My name is Kham Nguyen and I am from Florence, Alabama but I am here attending UAB. I enjoy working with dogs and just being around them. I volunteered at an animal shelter when I was younger in my hometown and this allowed me spend time with all sorts of dogs and puppies. I like to think that my passion and experience makes it easier for dogs to be comfortable around me, which makes it easier for me to work with any canine companion.
