We love hearing how our puppy raisers got started! Ricky Hesse shares his story!
“I got into puppy raising by complete chance when I ran into a friend at a dining hall on campus. She was a sitter already and a couple other puppy raisers joined us and I asked all of them so many questions about 4 Paws. After I met Blanket (La La Loopsy litter) I immediately started filling out the application! I started as a sitter but quickly became a primary when the dog I co-handled for, Bayleef (Gen 2 Pokémon litter), needed a new foster. 4 Paws has given me so many opportunities to meet some incredible people. One of the most unique things I’ve experienced is being able to connect with people from other colleges, some of whom I talk to almost everyday. Through these dogs everyone becomes part of a family that continually grows and I can’t imagine my life without it!”
