    “an animal lover willing to go above and beyond”

    Hi! My name is Matt and I've been a dog owner for nearly my whole life. My family has raised dogs as big as German shepherds and as small as a chiweenie. I currently have a large senior cat named Ted who is the most gentle and caring boy. I understand the absolute joy it is to care for animals and adore the bond that humans and animals can share.

    I'm a senior at Georgetown University, but I grew up outside New York. A couple years ago my girlfriend and I adopted a mixed-breed named Bear. I have a soft spot for all animals and I love and miss him so much! Help me fill the furry hole in my heart by letting me spend some time with your dog!
