I am a part-time student and freelance artist born and raised in Orange County. I live with my best friend (who also loves dogs!) in a spacey, two-story apartment near the Huntington Beach main street. I have always been a lover of animals, ever since I was a child, and have spent many, many hours reading and researching about all kinds of animals: pets and wild ones alike. I have always grown up around pets, and have lots of experience owning and looking after many breeds and species. I have owned and/or looked after species including ball pythons, sulphur-crested cockatoos, rose breasted cockatoos, amazon parrots, red-eared sliders, hamsters, many breeds of dogs, many breeds of cats, rats, chinchillas, rabbits, ducks, and guinea pigs. I have always been the person to go to when friends or neighbors need an animal to be looked after!
About Sarah R.:
I can watch dogs at my place, or go to you!
How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.
I have been a lover of all animals my whole life! I grew up with a sheltie mix named Stuffy (my two year old sister named her haha) who sadly left us when I she and I were 12. I have also lived with two sweet little pomeranians who stayed with my parents when I moved out but I look after when they go away.
What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?
I would like to know about the doggie's personality! What he or she likes and doesn't like, favorite games to play, any special needs, and any particular feeding times.
Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?
yes, I have a very reliable car.
Are you comfortable administering medication?
yes! I have had a lot of experience administering medication for dogs, cats, and birds over the years.
How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?
as much as possible! I really do enjoy the company of animals, and having a dog around is a great reason to go out and adventure around or just relax at home and play some games.
If you have a backyard, please describe it.
I have a decent-sized backyard which is currently all dirt. We just had everything torn out and are going to re-landscape very soon back there. It is completely enclosed by 6 ft of fencing.
Where will my dog sleep?
Most likely in my room, or anywhere he or she decides is a good spot, really.
Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.
If your dog is friendly and enjoys meeting other dogs, I live very close to dog beach in Huntington, which is always a really fun place for a walk! If your dog would rather be the only dog around, I know of many great parks around the area I could take him or her.
