“Wiggly butts drive me nuts!”

Hello Pet Parents! My name is Angie, and I can't wait to meet your pup! I'm that person who will immediately get down on the ground to love on all things furry before having a proper conversation with their owners, I can't help myself. I have 2 crazy babies of my own. Both rescues, one with severe anxiety bordering on feral, and both over 60lbs. So I'm used to big, crazy, shy furballs that need just a bit more time to feel comfortable. When it comes to dogs, I have all the time in the world!
