My name is Robbie Briskie and I’m from Albany, NY. Since I’m from Upstate New York, I grew up living for the outdoors since the Adirondack park was so accessible to me. My family has a house up on Schroon Lake in the Adirondacks, so whenever I get the chance to get myself up there- I do it! Outside of work I love to hike, snowshoe, ski, run, and play with dogs! After I received my Bachelors Degree in Criminology from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2015, I decided to head out West to LA! The yearn for adventure keeps me entertained in my early twenties! I spent a full year there and decided to move to NYC to be closer to family and friends.

Dogs (and sometimes cats, when they’re not being instigators!) are my favorite animals! I grew up with surrounded by pups my whole life. Because of this, I’ve been a dog sitter a countless number of times for friends and family. I love hanging around with dogs, they’re the best companions! I had a good amount of experience with rescues because my sister (who used to work in a veterinarian hospital) would always adopt, and I was always there to help out. She’s had a total of two rescue dogs, and four rescue cats. Growing up we had two beautiful pups; Sammy our Italian greyhound, and Kippy our Shetland Sheep dog.  They taught me so many lessons in life, and were so great to me.

I see the love and respect that pets and their owners share and it’s a love that can never be removed. If I ever had to pick an animal to live as, I would always pick a pup due to their compassion, sincerity, truth, loyalty, respect, and strength. And that’s what I’ve learned from my dogs. They taught me how to be a really excited, happy-go-lucky type of guy.  I am so happy to be apart of the RuffCity Team and to meet your wonderful, lovable furry friend!
