Hi my name is Russell! I've grown up in the Columbus area with a whole family of dog lovers. Ive had dogs in my family since I was a newborn. I love them and have grown up with them. That still wasn't enough for me so I also watched dogs and walked other dogs when their families couldn't. Now I'm looking forward to making even more friends with your dogs!
