Hi! Our names are Mary-Kate and Joe. We have been fostering rescue dogs for years. Last year, we met the canine love of our lives and we adopted him after only fostering him for a few days. We are so in love with our "son", Draco. We always have so much fun hanging out with him at home and on all of our adventures and we would love if he could have a buddy to play with so that he can get socialized. Though we both work, we have a at least one day a week that I can work from home and spend time with our guests. We are home most every evening/weekend. We'd love to care for your dog too whenever you can't be with your fur baby. We will treat him/her like our own and Draco will LOVE the company!
We both grew up with family dogs in our homes. We've both volunteered with the Humane Society in the past and currently volunteer/foster for Ruff Start Rescue and have cared for dogs of all sizes/ages.
We do require visiting dogs to be dog friendly as Draco will want to cuddle/play with them a lot!
Since we are renters, we do prefer visiting dogs to be crated trained - though not required. We have extra crates to borrow to furry guests! We love all breeds of dogs and think bully breeds are adorable :) However, our home is only about 1000 square feet so keep that in mind if you have a big dog - I don't want them to be uncomfortable in our smallish space.
We do have a roommate who is a nurse whose schedule allows someone to be home with the dogs practically 24/7. Between the 3 of us dog lovers, your dog will get 2-6 walks a day, and usually a trip to the park on the weekends! Dogs are never alone for more than 2-3 hours at a time - and even that's rare. We live near Lake of the Isles and love to walk around the lake and go to the dog park.
