Miss my dogs back home and love em

Hi I am Mel and while I do work a 9-5 job during the week, I am a habitual early riser and love to exercise a bit in the morning and night. The only thing missing is a furry running buddy. I live in a home with 2 people (who are also dog people and one is also on Rover). We have no pets and have a tall fence in our yard. I am home ...

What Mel would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences. I'd like to be notified if they are aggressive or a bit about their personality, such as if they get along with other dogs/kids (no pets/kids in my unit but may interact in my building), eat everything in site, or have a special diet.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Can provide daily exercise
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
