Salvatore is absolutely wonderful with dogs and animals in general. He has an ability to connect with almost any dog, even in situations that may be stressful for the animal. His demeanor is both playful and calming for dogs. He is extremely responsible and has experience looking after animals who come from backgrounds of abandonment and trauma. He is also excellent at establishing routines -- also key for keeping dogs well-behaved and happy. Exceptional!

I take care of your furry friend!

My wife and I have been proud parents of Fritz for six years. And counting! He was then 5, and he loved to be adopted by us.
We recently moved to Pittsburgh, and we decided for a house with a park right in front of it, and a yard, because Fritz is our priority. And your dog will be our priority too!
I always had a dog, since I was a kid. I cherish a ...

What Salvatore would like to know about your dog

For obvious reasons, I can sit in my house only dogs who are ok around cats and other small dogs. Fritz is a Dachshund, so I cannot host dogs that are too big and risk to tramp over him. My parents have a Whippet, so I know very well Greyhound dogs and I am happy to host any of the many declination of the breed (from Italian Greyhounds to Afghan Greyhounds).
I am happy to come over to have a meet 'n' greet with Fritz, so we can figure out if our dogs get along for long stays in our home.

Can provide daily exercise

We live right in front of Friendship park, where I will bring your dog for shorter walks. We bring Fritz out every few hours, and we will be happy to bring your dog along too. The Lawrenceville dog park is down the hill, so socializing with other dogs will not be a problem. If your dog is not that much of a walker, I'll happily use our station wagon to bring him/her to Highland Park as well, where Fritz enjoy the small dog park.
We also have a fenced yard, so your dog can safely be let loose.
We can take care of your dog any time of the day: I work from home, so s/he will always be with someone.
We adopted also a small cat, Penelope, that is very well accustomed to have dogs around. She will love your dog too!
