“Truly love all animals”
I grew up around all types/temperaments/sizes of dogs and have always had an affinity and love for all animals. I have my bachelors in Animal Science. My compassion in life is animals, especially dogs. I love getting to know a dog’s unique personality, their quirks and what makes them happy. I consider myself to be responsible, honest, respectful, and considerate. My dogs are my babies so I know how important your dogs are to you, and I always treat/love every dog I meet like my own babies!

“Friendly, reliable dog lover!”
Hi! My name is Ben and I’ve grown up with dogs my entire life. As a child, I was mainly around Dachshunds and Beagles, but my best friend was Bruno, a Great Dane. I pride myself on being reliable and responsible as I would never trust my dog to anyone without the highest degree of care. I can handle dogs of all sizes and breeds as my wife and I now have a Maltese. I have a full-time job so this is an opportunity for me to get out of the office and meet wonderful dog owners and breeds!
