Hi! I'm Jessie - I'm 29 and grew up in southern Iliinois before moving across the river. I live in my Tower Grove Park/Botanical Gardens adjacent apartment with my loving best friend, John.
John is a four year old pitbull/labrador mix I rescued from the APA in 2011 and since then, he is becoming more and more like a teenager with every day (think: spouts of energy in the afternoon, but mainly enjoys sleeping and doing nothing on the couch). Some of his best friends in the neighborhood are Bobby Dylan, a spunky black pug, and Clark, a ridgeback mix who loves to run...all the time. John is great with dogs of all sizes and would love to do a meet n greet so he can add your pup to his BFF list.
My apartment is a spacious, open floor plan 2nd floor shotgun-style with a partially fenced back yard. There are two dog beds, a kennel, couch and bed for all the relaxation needs of your pup and plenty of large windows to keep an eye on the pesky squirrels outside (plus LOTS of sunlight!). Botanical Gardens is right outside the door with a great walking path around the perimeter. On nice evenings and every weekend, John and I also love to head over to Tower Grove Park (only about 5 blocks away!) for a long run.
For four years and counting, I have been the "unofficial" dog (and cat) sitter for many family members and close friends - caring for their animals for weeks at a time. I used DogVacay to find a sitter for my own pup for the first time last year, and had such a great experience, I decided I wanted to become a host and provide the same services for other dogs, as well!
