I was raised in St. Louis and moved to Florida while a teen. Pets were always a big part of my childhood. My wife is also a huge animal lover so our first child was an adorable Doberman pup named Klaus. We are currently puppy parents to a Pitbull named Max (Maximus). I enjoy being outdoors, watching my children play sports, and building a variety of woodworking projects. I love writing about rescue animal needs and how dogs enhance our lives. CBCC-KA, CDBC.
