Pet Sitter Needed

Hi, I am currently serving in Moldova as a PCV and I rescued a dog and a cat here that I plan to bring back to America. In July I will be arriving to Boston from Moldova to attend Tufts U. masters program. I've been having the most difficult time getting any kind of housing with my animals in tow, but I think the best would be if I got a temporary housing for the first month while I look for permanent housing. The problem is that the temporary sublets and AirB&B won't take my dog. Some will take my cat but definitely not my dog. Hence, I am now looking for someone to house/board my dog for 3 weeks while I look for permanent housing. She is the most quiet, gentle and loving dog I have ever raised. Having lived on the streets she is still scared of everything, but at the same time very playful. I have never seen her show aggression towards any dog we meet on the street, and she LOVES all cats. Can anyone help? I can pay a small fee for your time.

If you're interested, please email Stacey Chong at stacychong.apius@gmail.com
