Hi! My name is Karen. I am a huge dog lover, I've never met a dog I didn't love, and make instant friends with the pups I meet. I have had dogs my whole life, including now. I have a rat terrier as well as a super hyper chi-weenie that I rescued from running in traffic. While my dogs are small, I also foster dogs and most of the ones that come to me while awaiting a forever home are pit bulls or other misunderstood pooches. I love them all. I know how much you love your dog, and I will treat them like I would my own. I cant wait to meet your pup!
