Russell has accepted several check-in visits for my puppy, Callie. She definitely looked forward to his visits each day and enjoyed playing with his dog too! He was flexible, responsible, and took great care of my girl while I was at work.

When Russell watches your pet

I take Ginny on all the local trails. She is my handyman when I got on Home Depot trips. She has her own fan club there too. We try swimming. She prefers to bark at the water than swim haha
