Hello! I am a veterinary technician who has been working with animals for over 10 years. Over the years I have fostered many dogs, cats, and kittens with a variety of health issues. Needless to say, my 2 dogs are very well socialized with all the exposure to foster pets and from coming to work with me at my animal hospital. I have experience with all breeds, ages, personalities, and medical conditions unique to your pet. We would love for your pup to stay with our pack!
Currently, Our Pack includes 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 birds and 2 snakes. All of these animals are rescues that I have acquired through my work as a vet tech (except for the cat, who was a foster failure!) Your dog will not have access to the birds/snakes as they are in cages and tanks. My cat was raised by my two dogs and mostly ignores any dogs that come to the house.
I have a very large 2 bedroom apartment in Albany Park. I have several dog crates and baby gates to create a safe environment if your pet is special needs, or just to allow your pet a slow introduction to the rest of the Pack.
Some things that we like to do include: snuggle on the couch with heated blankets, chew bones and play with toys, look out the window and bark (my dogs, not me), go for long walks in the nearby parks.
During the week I work at a Pet Insurance company. We have a dog friendly office, so your dog may be able to come to work with me and be showered with attention from all the pet lovers at my work!
The dogs that I foster or pet sit become like our family. With my medical background I am able to administer many types of medication such as oral pills, fluids or injections. I have contact with veterinarians 24/7 in case of any emergency.
I will happily send you photo updates on your dog's vacation with my pack! I cannot take any dogs who are not good with cats.
