For a long time I thought I wanted to be a vet, which led to stints volunteering at the Humane Society and a local pet shelter and pet store. Now I work at a nonprofit with flexible hours in the city.
I've had fish, birds, cats, and dogs (currently my parents are with my lhasa apso) ranging in age and breeds, and all have lived long and happy lives!
My home is pet-friendly - a sunny apartment with a similarly pet-experienced and -loving roommate. Large beds for lounging, a corner perfectly fitted for a dog bed, and just a 15 minute walk from Central Park, a 10 minute walk from Carl Schurz Park, and a 5 minute walk from John Jay park.
I'm an early riser so morning walks are definitely doable. My office allows pets, so I'm happy to take the pet with me into work and make sure that they are taken care of fully while you are away. In addition, my roommate is an experience dog-walker and sitter, and will assist with the dog's care if I need to step away. She also works at a dog-friendly office, and our schedules will often allow us to work from home.
Though my profile says I accept large dogs, this will need to be discussed to understand exactly how large the dog is and its unique needs!
