Rudy had a great time staying with Dorothea. I understand he loved playing ball constantly. Will definitely bring him back for another visit.

Dorothea took great care of Blue and handeled his wild puppy personally awesome. She sent photos and videos of him running around her mini farm while they were in her garden and hanging out with her inside as well. Her dog Hilda seems very sweet and tolerative! I actually don’t think Blue wanted to come home with us after a couple days with Dorothea. Thank you so much, would definitely take Blue there again.

What Dorothea would like to know about your dog
