I have always had dogs growing up (golden retrievers). I have recently gotten a new golden retriever named Cooper! He is a little over a year old, so I am very comfortable with a crazy pup who loves to have fun! I have many friends, who have smaller dogs, so I feel very comfortable in taking care of them, as well. I had a cat for much of my life, though I do not have one presently. I love animals and would love to help care for yours, as well!
