Melissa was born and raised in Stamford, CT. She went to school for Cosmetology and has worked in Fairfield county for the past 10 years.
Melissa has always had a passion for the arts and making a difference in the world. Her passion for nurturing connects her to being outdoors, taking care of plants and contributed to her love for being around animals.
She had a family dog growing up who lived to be 16 ½ and she 100% believed that he lived so long because of his everyday walks (sometimes 3x a day). This is what made her passion for walking dogs that much more special.

⭐️Dog(s) of the Week⭐️ MABEL & PEARL
Mabel started hiking with AD about 2 years ago and her little sister Pearl joined a year later. They make the sweetest golden duo, and though they love their pack mates, they spend most of their hikes wrestling with each other! Mabel was a little apprehensive when her energetic little sister first came home, but it didn’t take long before the two became the best of friends! Mabel and Pearl are inseparable! They do have their differences though. Pearl is always first out the door when the AD van pulls up, whereas Mabel takes a moment to wake up from her nap before making her way to the door. Pearl likes to spend her van ride playing while Mabel prefers to relax right behind the driver seat. This is where the differences end though! These girls hike alike! While out on the trails Mabel and Pearl love to cover lots of ground! They don’t stop moving and only slow down to partake in a game of Tug of War, usually with each other, or play in a mud puddle. Though they love their blonde fur, they enjoy seeing what it’s like to be brunettes for the day. Mabel and Pearl are as fun as they are loving and we are so happy they are a part of our AD family! Congratulations Mabel and Pearl!!! 💛💛 ... See MoreSee Less
