Hi! My name is Jazz, and I’m a fellow animal lover just like you! I currently own an African Pygmy hedgehog named Wensworth, but he wouldn’t like it if I put a leash on him haha. So instead, I ask you to give me the honor of walking, and loving your dog while you get your human things done! I have lots of experiences with a wide variety of breeds, and understand the different personality types. I’m a psychology major at FGCU, concentrating my studies in animal-assisted therapy.
