Been a long darn time since I signed up for a forum. I am Violet _real name, Carina) and am from Tacoma, WA. I run a small dog rescue whose passion is hard to place dogs such as Bully breeds and seniors. I own several dogs of my own and have a couple of fosters. Personal dogs are Cowgirl (Am Staff/APBT) Gunner (Shiba/Kelpie mix) Chico (chihuahua) Vinnie (Chi x) and Dari (doxie/Husky..yes you read that right) and two cats. And 3 birds. Have 5 human children, 3 of which are legally adults and two are teenagers. 3 Grandsons. I work as a Caregiver and have done so my entire adult life. That about covers it, I think.
