Izzy – Uptown

I’m Izzy! I was born and raised in Brazil, but have been a Jersey girl for as long as I can remember 🙂 The city can’t keep me away, though, as I’ve worked in Soho for the last decade doing hair and makeup. I love to explore new cities, binge-watch Netflix, try new foods, and most of all, spend time with animals!! I have two dogs and two cats who are my best friends. My Pitbull Jagr who was my first is a big mush. Then I got my little guy, Dwight, who’s a Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix and full of personality! 😉

As far back as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to animals. Growing up in Brazil my dad had three Rottweilers and a Maltese. As I got older, I couldn’t imagine a house without dogs, too – they bring so much happiness and love to a home! Until I was old enough to have my own, I would volunteer at shelters all over north Jersey with my friends. Whether I was waking pups or cleaning up after them, I was always just happy to be around a big friendly group of new buddies 🙂

Being able to now work with dogs is a dream of mine that came true – I’m so happy to be part of the RuffCity team! I can’t wait to meet your pups, get to know their personalities, and go on fun adventures with them! I know just how important they are to you, so they’ll be treated with the best care when they’re in my hands. See you guys soon!!
