Melissa can be found cuddling with animals of many kinds, although dogs have always had a special place in her heart. She’s been around dogs her entire life, many who have been considered part of the family. She will not only care about the well being of the pups she cares for, but she also knows first hand how much respoibility it takes to take care of another parents fur baby! Melissa is perfect ...

I've had family dogs since I was 6 years old and have volunteered at local dog rescue companies. I enjoy spending time with animals and making sure they are loved and cared for in every sense ...

When Melissa watches your pet

I already visit Twin Lakes dog park weekly with either my boyfriends dogs or my friends dogs. There are plenty of trails around Columbia that we could explore together. If there are an specific areas your pup enjoys, I will make an effort to get them there. We would have lots of fun on walks, interacting with nature, and getting plenty of exercise. I'll give treats until told otherwise!!
