Zandra – Uptown

My name is Zandra and I have been living in NYC for about 6 years now. Before taking up residence here I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated from Georgia State University with degrees in psychology, religious studies, and geology. I currently spend time working on an event planning business my mother had established 20 years ago. She has now retired and I am now in charge of handling all planning details! Outside of work, I enjoy knitting, cross stitching, eating my weight in pizza, and I find myself frequently out for dog watching purposes J.

I believe all dogs are a part of the family. They are to be treated with kindness, awareness and deserve adequate love and attention. I grew up with several family dogs, mostly Beagles (with one living 21 years), but have also rescued a Pit Bull/Great Dane mix. His name is Gumbo and he is all legs! He came from a traumatic background, where he was tied to a tree and had sticks thrown at him. I love creating a special bond of trust with every dog I have in my care so they will never have to feel mistreated or neglected.

I understand the love you have for your pet and that it’s one of the most beautiful and special relationships one can encounter. Needless to say, I am so, so happy to be a part of the RuffCity Team and cannot wait to spend some quality time with your furry friend!
