“Pounding Pavement for Pups!”

I have had dogs all my life, I have always loved them. I got involved in rescue over 10 years ago and have been fortunate to help and love many dogs. Being able to care for them and see them transform from the sick, scared, or abused (often all of those) dogs into healthy, loving babies is so rewarding. They are so loving, and deserve the very best we can do for them!

“Spread Good Vibes & Live Every Day to the Fullest!”

Hi, my name is Brittany and I love all dogs, but specialize in the big ones. When I lived in Georgia, I spent some time rescuing pitbulls from bad homes and loving them in my home until they were ready to be relocated to new happy homes. Along the way, I was able to raise my own Pitbull, Tank, who is now 10yrs old and is the sweetest love of my life. I have moved to Texas now and would like to continue contributing to the happy dog community. I love walking your furry ones and giving them love!
