Ruthie has been giving exceptional care to my (2) dogs for over 6 years. She is genuine in loving my fur babies. Ruthie has always been dependable.
Her calm and caring domineer makes me feel at ease leaving. She comes into my home and gets right down on the floor to greet my babies. I know my dogs have been well cared for when I return to see them happy!
