“I can't wait to be your dog's next best friend!”

I grew up with animals - cats, dogs, snakes, chickens, horses, goats, pigs, and even a few llamas next door! I have been pet sitting a variety of animals since I was ten years old; cats are my favorite but dogs are a very close second. I grew up with large dogs like Labs, Pit bulls, etc, but I love dogs of all sizes. I can't wait to meet your pup and become their new (second-best) best friend!

My name is Jolie. I got my first dog when I was five and I have never looked back. They are such great companions whether we are running in the park or watching Lassie on tv. I have taken my dogs through obedience training and one went through touch therapy training. I also have two cats because, as they say, "To keep life in proper perspective, one who has a dog to worship him should also have a cat to ignore him."

It sits on nine square miles, and the bigger city of Scottsdale also borders carefree to the south, and the town of Cave Creek borders it to the west.
