I'm a passionate dog lover excited to be able to use my free time during the day to improve both my life and other dogs. I've always found friends' dogs to walk back in my home state of Texas, and miss having companions for my walks! I grew up with boxers and a border collie, so I'm comfortable with every breed, from chihuahuas to great danes. I can't wait to meet some wonderful dogs!

I am 19 years old and was raised in Texas. I grew up with two black labs (Cash and Bella) in my childhood home in Dallas. Cash was the smartest boy ever and Bella could keep up with greyhounds. In Galveston I volunteered at the GIHS working a few events or just giving the dogs some excercise. At my new place Denver I cannot have a pet of my own, but with any animal; any dog I will treat with all the utmost care.
