Hi! My name is Perri, and I've been living in Boston for the past 7 years. Growing up, I had 2 chocolate labradors, Bubba and Dudley, who I cared for and followed me all around the neighborhood making friends. In my adult life, I've cared for/trained pets for friends and roommates including a pitbull puppy named Paisley, an English bulldog puppy named Jasper, and a Yorkshire Terrier named Tammy. I currently have a mixed breed rescue dog named Kane. He has opened up to me and become super sweet to people in the time that I've had him. I like dogs of all shapes and sizes, and I have the patience, temperament, and experience to handle many different breeds. I can't wait to meet your pup too!
