Hi! My name is Maria and I adore dogs.
EXPERIENCE: I've had dogs and taken care of them since I was a child, 7 dogs to be exact, a loving golden retriever named Marcus who passed away a couple of years ago of old age, a pug named Paco who is 10, a bulldog named Joana the baby, a basset hound named Oliver, and three mutts named Ceniza, Gaspar and Baltazar. Sadly non of them live with me because I left for school and wasn't fair for any of them to leave their loving precious home, that being said I missed having a furry buddy to hang out with.
HOME: I live in a large apartment with my sister, who also loves dogs, in the loop next to a dog park and close to the dog beach and the lakefront trail.
I have a job with very flexible hours which allows me to be with my visitors for long periods of time, in other words they would rarely be alone! My building is very dog friendly, we have our own elevator so no stairs!
OUR DAY: Walks in the park and the neighborhood, runs at the trail and some fun at the dog beach if that's ok with you. Some tv watching and rest will also be part of their days.
RESTRICTIONS: My only restriction is no loud dogs, although I understand dogs bark I do live in an apartment building and I can't have a buddy barking through the night. So if your pup likes to be out and loud then we might not be a good fit.
I understand that our dogs are not just pets but an unconditionally loving being in our lives, so I'll follow your instructions and be as accommodated as possible.
