Hello. My name is Ginger, but everyone calls me Cutie. Jim takes me out for walks. I get really excited when he comes to the house to take me out. He is a lot of fun to be with and he takes really good care of me. He is very patient and lets me sniff all around the park so I can check out what other dogs have been there.

Jim was amazing, as per usual! This was his first actual sitting with us though he has helped us out in the past with walks and sitter recommendations!

Experienced Sitter 4 Furry Families

I COVER ALL of ABQ and have been a Dog & Cat sitter and owner for well over three decades. This helped to pay for my college education, by taking care of wonderful animals ever since my early college days. In addition, I have volunteered in shelters and no-kill sanctuaries since the early-1980s, in whatever city and state my career took me. This includes taking care of literally tens of thousands of dogs & cats ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog
