Hi, I'm Melissa! I'm currently an NYC college student looking forward to giving lots of love and attention to your dog! I became a vegetarian when I was twelve years old because of the animal abuse I saw online. I have grown up with 3 cats and my grandmothers 6 dogs, so I am an all around animal lover! I spent my time in middle school volunteering at animal shelters and donating portions of my pay checks in high school to these shelters! I love animals and I will make yours feel nothing but loved.

Hi, my name is Jordan. First of all, I love dogs! I have been walking dogs on a regular basis since 2009. This includes walking my neighbor's dogs. I also acted as a long term dog sitter for an elderly woman who had to move into a home. I literally moved in and took care of her dog and her home full time! They had to sell the home and asked me to adopt the dog (Barkis) which I was thrilled to do and we are best buddies :)
