Does your dog require the tender loving special care of a caring dog professional in the big apple? Perhaps you should compare your story to Truffle (see above) who is a with nine lives. Yes, Truffle has been through his fare share of near death experiences with daycare (not ours of course), pet sitters and much much more. Needless to say, he’s a survivor and our Walk About Wednesday’s Dog Hero of the day. Despite his many near brushes with death, he is here to stay for his very sweet owner and the neighborhood of Murray Hill meets Flatiron. Just some background on Truffle for those curious minds: Truffle is a black poodle (no mix here), he’s 100% purebred and very very poodlelike. By that we mean: he’s smart, quick on his feet and at times like all other little dogs, a little on the cautious side. For more info on poodles, contact the new york dog nanny.
