Hello. I am Yvonne. When I am not walking dogs, I am an operational meteorologist for the U.S. Air Force. While I do admit that cats were my first love, in 2004 I got my first dog, a pug named Monster. I then became a dog person. After Monster, I rescued another pug from a shelter. His name was Budda. They have since passed. Currently I own a Bedlington Terrier named Payton. I have volunteered with various shelters and pug rescues across the country. Can’t wait to meet your dog!

“Let’s walk!”

I am the mom of a 5 yr old rescue pup, a Boxer/Beagle mix from West Virginia. I work as a volunteer for a Golden Retriever Rescue Group in MD. I have owned dogs my entire life and I think dogs are the sweetest, most incredible creatures on the planet! . I would love to be the bright spot to your dog's day by showing up to take him or her out for a mid-day walk. I look forward to meeting lots of fun fur-friends!
