Hello! I'm an overall animal lover of all kinds - furry, reptilian, aquatic, feathered, etc. I have two dogs- The youngest is named Bruce, and he is a 90 pound German Shepard mixed 1 year old with LOTS of energy (an overall goofball with not an ounce of meanness). I also have an elderly 7 year old Corgi mix named Poncho who is quiet and reserved.
Poncho was a special needs dog when we first adopted him from the shelter. He had heartworms (that they didn't know about) and had to undergo extensive treatments. I found it myself when we first got him - a long hug turned into a listening session for abnormal breathing. He has trouble hearing now, and cannot run or jump much. I just wanted to mention this because I am very attentive to detail, and I am familiar with dogs who need a little extra attention and care.
I also have three kitties who like to keep to themselves. They are used to dogs and other animals.
I live in a ranch style home with no stairs (except front porch and to the back yard), and 80% of the house is an open floor plan. The backyard is fenced in completely, and is one giant space to run around.
I work from home and will never leave the pets alone. Bruce happens to have terrible separation anxiety so I understand pet parents who would like to have someone there always. I have a computer room where I work, and the dogs like to sit with me -there are no restrictions there!
All of my pets (except our Ball Python) were shelter/rescue/found on the street. I feel strongly about providing a loving home and safe place to be.
