Melissa did a fabulous job of taking care of our puppy!!!! Puppies come with certain challenges, and Melissa didn't blink an eye, showing only tons of love and understanding for Wyatt ---- we will definitely be rebooking Melissa :)

Melissa took great care of my kitten, Gertie! She sent tons of pics and updates. I felt very relieved knowing my baby was being well taken care of and getting a chance to play and cuddle.

I love your furbabies!

I love dogs and cats! I had dogs growing up and will adore yours! I'm happy to go for walks/runs with your pup or just hang out with them! I think that all dogs are family members and am looking forward to taking care of yours. I have one cat who is very friendly and a dog who is very sweet. I am a young professional working in downtown Austin and living in St. Johns. ...

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preference. I truly love all animals.
