Hi! I’m Artemis (for fans of Greek mythology, the goddess of wildlife —so it’s my nature to protect pups). I fall in love with every animal I meet (including yours!), and I believe in giving our pets everything they give to us: love, care, loyalty and lots of fun. In addition to taking care of my own pets, I have experience walking dogs and pet sitting — I give a pretty mean belly rub, too.
