In the spirit of being thankful this month, we are so happy to put the spotlight on one of our star employees, Liz. We are so thankful for Liz because she is truly a ray of sunshine. Everyday, Liz comes to work with a wide smile on her face, ready for anything. The dogs love Liz because she has this amazing, innate sense of how best to communicate with them without saying a word. The staff loves Liz because she’s ready to lend a helping hand wherever she’s needed, and she exudes a constant positivity that’s impossible to ignore.
Outside of the Urban Hound, Liz is just as amazing. First and foremost, Liz is an excellent mother to her 7-year-old son Miles. If you were at our Ghouls, Gimlets & Grrrowlers party, you may have met Miles, who served as one of our costume judges. Liz’s all-time favorite activity is snuggling with Miles and their Beagle pup, Ginger. When Liz and Miles have spare time, they are at the park with Ginger, attending one of Miles’s Boy Scout meetings (he takes his pledge very seriously), or rooting for the Celtics.
Since growing up in the Milton/Boston area, Liz has loved dogs. She loves pitbulls, Bernese Mountain Dogs, and Border & Rough Collies. (And, of course, Beagles.) Liz graduated from Roxbury Community College with a degree in Veterinary Assistance, so you know your dogs are in great hands when she’s around. Miles hopes to one day be a veterinarian. Well, that or a race car driver.
In addition to working full-time and being a great mom, Liz finds time for the things she loves. Liz enjoys drawing, especially old 90s cartoons. Liz is also a passionate advocate for survivors of domestic violence.
The Urban Hound is lucky to have Liz on our team, and we hope you’ll feel just as lucky knowing your pups are in Liz’s capable, caring hands when they can’t be with you.
