Hello! My name is Lindsey Conan and I am a born and raised Californian who moved to the big apple two years ago. I moved to New York for my fiancé who was born and raised here, but before doing so I was adamant that I could only see myself living in New York if I had a dog!
Dogs have always had a special place in my heart from birth. I grew up with a Springer Spaniel for the first 12 years of my life, then after she passed we got Labradors. I have been lucky enough to call 3 labradors my fluffy kids throughout my life; a yellow, chocolate, and black lab. Here in New York my fluffy kid is a wonderful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is 3 years old.
By volunteering in animal shelters I have obtained a lot of experience with different traits of dogs to sizes and breeds . From very scared and shy dogs to more aggressive ones. I also have experience helping many dogs with different illnesses, from blindness, diabetes, hip dysplasia, luxating patella, and thyroid conditions.
My favorite saying has always been, “be the person your dog thinks you are.” A motto I live by when taking care of my own dog as well as others. We are their friends, protectors, leaders, second pair of eyes, as well as love and treat providers. I am so happy to be apart of RuffCity and to live up to that motto day in and day out.
