After working at several veterinary clinics in Denver, CO, my husband and I decided to move back to Mammoth to enjoy the mountains and be close to family. We are both avid German Short haired Pointer lovers! We have two of our own, Macy and Lady, and work with several rescues throughout California to help foster and care for other GSPs. We also have Tucker (pictured) a Big Pine Shelter alum, who we love dearly and can do no wrong! And a recent addition of two cats, Mittens and Marbles.
