What our clients say about us...

Hi Lisa, Just to let you know that Jasper and Pheonix have settled in nicely. Within a couple of hours Jasper was strutting around like he owned the place. Pheonix stills stays out of sight most of the time, but at night they are both off out hunting and last night brought thier first mouse into the house ( at 1:00 am ) The heat doesn’t seem to bother them much and they have adjusted to sharing space with the dog.
Thanks for everything to get them here.

Hi Lisa, we safely picked up Chewie last Wednesday. We found a great dog park near us where Chewie can run around and play with other dogs for about an hour every day. He is loving it! Anyway, thank you again for all your help and looking after Chewie so well before the departure. We are very happy that Chewie is with us here in Rome?
