Shirley is fantastic with all animals and you can truly tell she's passionate about them. She's always happy to do her job and is very loving towards all dogs in her care. I would recommend her because she's always giving her 100% and your dog will be in great hands.

Shirley has been an animal lover her whole life. I’ve never seen her not smile around them. She’s always ready to give endless snuggles, belly rubs, and kisses. The people’s dogs she’s cared for always come back to request her because of everything mentioned above. She provides excellent service and makes sure to keep the owners posted on how the walk is going.

About Shirley

  • Verified Background Check

Flexible and late notice walker!

My name is Shirley, I’m 22 years old and I've been an animal lover my whole life! I currently own 2 parrots, a rabbit, and I rescued a turtle and fish back in January. Sadly, I don’t have a dog because my apartment doesn’t allow them but luckily i get my doggy dose through walking/drop in visits! :) I have a passion for all animals but dogs have a special spot in ...

What Shirley would like to know about your dog

I prefer small-medium dogs because I am a small girl myself. If they’re a medium dog I would feel more comfortable if they’re well trained to not pull or run. For drop in visits that don’t require walking, large dogs are no problem! I love every dog but sadly I’m not strong enough and as mentioned I’m very small so it’s a huge struggle for me to walk larger dogs.

I take the dogs I care for on a nice stroll around the block and try to avoid humans and other animals if they get anxious in such cases. If the owner has any special requests I will be more than happy to comply! I know each dog is different and I will be sure to ask if they have any triggers, preferences or any additional information that I should take note of. I also give pretty good belly rubs if I may say so myself! Dogs usually flop on the floor a few times begging for belly rubs until I finally have to force myself to leave after about 6 belly rubs. :)
