Alden – Downtown

Hey there I’m Alden! I am an animal/music lover from Annapolis, Maryland. I moved to New York in 2017 to pursue my passion for music and to study production and engineering. I am now part-time at NYU but shifting my focus towards interning and getting hands on!

Living in Maryland was great because I lived near the city but also spent plenty of time at the farms near my house, which definitely sparked my passion for animals as a kid. My first dog was a Cairn Terrier named Duncan when I was about 6 years old. After a battle with cancer about 2 years ago Duncan passed away and my family then rescued an American Fox Hound named Rudy. My time with Rudy has taught me a lot, coming from an abusive owner he had a lot of challenges to overcome, and the journey he’s had has been a big learning experience for me, but also made me realize dogs are an extremely important part of my life!

I am so happy to be a part of the RuffCity team and look forward to meeting you and your pup!
