I have always loved dogs, and grew up with dogs since I was a little boy.
People know me as the guy that all dogs run up to and instantly love.
I have owned several dogs full-time for the last 16 years, They are part of my life like children. I ran a non-profit dog rescue and sanctuary for about 8 years out in the country. We specialized in rescuing and rehabilitating abused or abandoned pit bulls. They are my favorite dog hands down. I am very accustomed to working with stronger, bigger dogs, as well as dogs with some behavioral issues. I have experience with caring for dogs after surgery and administering medications.
If your dog came to stay with me there would only be one other dog, and she is great with all other dogs. I have a fully fenced yard, and access to nearby parks. I never leave dogs unattended in a yard, I believe in being out there with them for fun and supervision. I live within walking distance of Springwater Corridor Trail. Perfect for dog walks. I also like putting the dogs in my truck and heading to the various off-leash dog parks in Portland. My house is a mellow environment with three available rooms, carpet and hardwoods, the yard, and a garage.
I am also available to come to your house to dog sit/house sit.
