Karen is lovely and my pack of 4 greyhounds took to her right away one of them is very shy and cautious foster dog who is afraid of her own shadow however she was thrilled with Karen. I would recommend karen in a heartbeat

Karen would make a fantastic pet sitter! She is dependable and loves all animals. She is a great pet mom to all of her rescues.

Karen V has been my best friend since the day we met back in 1978. Over the years, she has had many pets: dogs, cats, rabbits, fish. They always choose her!

Ever since I was little I have rescued all kinds of animals. At the moment I have two rescue cats and two rescue dogs.

What Karen would like to know about your dog

Visiting a home before taking over the responsibility of somebody’s animals is very important. I need to know the food they are eating and how much/often, any medical issues, any medications, name of their preferred vet plus a letter authorizing me to have the dog receive medical attention. I need to meet the dog because this makes it much easier for both the dog and myself when I come to the house for the first time and his parents aren’t home. I also would like to know any major concerns the owner may have for their dog such as anxiety etc. I have no breed preference
