Mike & Lisa: We are huge dog lovers, hard-working young professionals who are extremely excited to play with and care for your dog while you are away!
We have been living in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood for 2+ years now and am only a few blocks away from Rittenhouse Square. We would love to house-sit your puppy/pet! I have over 5 years of fostering experience through a reputable local dog rescue which would provide an excellent reference upon request. Our home is in The Condominiums at Grays Court which is a beautiful gated community that offers ample amount of playing & roaming space for your dog/puppy, and we live within walking distance of multiple parks. My girlfriend and I are huge dog fanatics and would love nothing more to provide a safe, loving, and fun environment for your beloved dog to stay with for a few nights while you are away! Our passion for helping others and love for dogs will create a wonderful relationship to assist in pet-sitting! We truly look forward to hearing back from you!
Some of my earliest memories were of my parents training dogs for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, we would never have a shortage of puppies when I grew up. When our beautiful Golden Retriever Joel, did not pass the Guiding Eyes test, he became a part of our family for 12 years until April 2011. He was not just a pet, but an amazing companion, who is still missed dearly. Since moving to Philadelphia, I became a volunteer foster for Wet Nose Rescue, as I am not ready to fully commit to owning a dog...just yet! I enjoy the fostering aspect because it gives puppies a chance from inhumane shelters/puppy mills a fresh start. As difficult as it is to give a foster puppy away to its new adoptive parents, it is extremely rewarding knowing that they are in a position to be loved forever. It is only inevitable that I will become a 'failed foster' and adopt a little guy myself! In the meantime, I would love to help others by sitting through Rover. Dogs will always be a part of our lives, whether it is my own pet, or giving someone else's beloved pet a safe, comfortable, loving, and fun home to share for a few nights while mom/dad are out of town.
