About Stephene

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Stephene, wife, mother and pup mother. I currently have two dogs Wynn (Great Pyrenees) and Sloan (Bassador). I also foster one Pomeranian at most times, with two successful adoptions (Badger and Borko) .

My dog loving journey began when I was a young lass. Caring for stray animals and reading every educational textbooks I could get my hands on.

In 2005 got my Animal Control License for the state of Texas. I persued a career in the Animal Control field. I ran into an unknown issue... There weren't any jobs in the state, that wouldn't require relocation.


At this time I decided to put the license to use and began working with local rescues. West Side Animal League was the first opportunity to put my knowledge to use. Administration of vaccines, transport, organizing adoption events, waste cleanup, behaviour analysis, behavior training. As life continued my husband and I were expecting an new baby (non-fur baby). I unfortunately had a miscarriage. I took some personal time and dwindled working with the rescue. Within a year of this I had become pregnant again... Healthy baby girl!


Fast forward to recently. Having found an abandoned Pomeranian, I was put in contact with Recycled Pomeranians. After he was adopted, I decided to foster another... and became a permanent foster with them. I really missed working with dogs!

I have a wide range of experience with many breeds, health conditions, and behavior.

I also send pictures or videos of your babies while you're away, I can even do a Skype video call :)

I would love to meet you and your fur babies and see how I can help. I prefer to meet you and your pet(s) beforehand to make sure we're a good match. I understand sometimes with -life- that may be impossible. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

Stephene was a great host, she quickly replied to all my messages and answered all my questions. My pups were so happy to stay and were just as happy when I picked them up.
Aj came back so happy I am completely satisfied with her sitter will use again.
Stephene is great! She loves dogs and really cares about what she does. She was able to take my Tank! on short notice, which I truly appreciate. She gets to know her clients dogs really well, and I am excited to have Tank! visit her daycare in the future.

She and her family were accommodating anf flexible as to drop off and pick up. She made him a makeshift bed with sheets. And he was fed regularly. He was well taken care of. Thank you and I look forward to using your care again.
I couldn't have found a better doggy sitter then Stephene. She answered my messages right away to assure me my pup was having fun. I would definitely book with her again.
We had a excellent experience with Stephene. Angel was happy and had her photo made in front of her tree. She also sent photos of Angel while we were out of town. I will highly recommend Stephene.
Nice host. Happy dog.
Very sweet and quick to respond. Would definitely rebook again!! Thank you Stephene for everything!! Bubba did great for his first time away. Great to meet you.
My Angel was happy to go to this day care and I have every confidence in this family to take good care of her
Stephene was awesome. She was able to keep my dog on short notice. Stephene was very nice and has a pet friendly home. She took good care of our pet.
Stephene answered my request for an 0800 Sunday morning request (the next day) at 11:45 pm the night before! I just moved to the area and had to go out of town for a funeral and couldn't bring Henry. Henry is an English bulldog who is allergic to everything and was currently in an allergic reaction to the new surroundings but Stephene just took him in with no worries about his shedding and itching. She even extended his stay due to our late return with no issues. We will use her again. Great experience!
