I’m Alina Pride and I hail from Odessa, Ukraine. I moved to Boston, MA when I was about 2 years old, and my love of dogs started when I was born. A year before I was born, my family got a beautiful Gordon Setter. We brought him with us to America and he was my absolute best friend. I spent all my free time with him, took him on walks with my father, and prepared his meals. I looked forward to getting out of school every day and running out of the front doors to see him and my grandmother waiting for me!
I majored in Photography when I went to college. (I even stayed in Boston because I couldn’t stand to leave the family dog behind). I’ve been living in New York on and off for 8 years now. There is just something about New York that draws me in! When I’m not working, I’m writing, taking pictures, and visiting my family/rescue pit in Boston.
