About Maria

Hello! My name is Maria and I'm from Costa Rica. I moved to Brussels last year to study at the Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS), I'm an art historian and I also majored in Social Communication.

Back home my mom and I rescued 6 mixed dogs: Phoebe, Luka, Camila, Zuko, Elliot, and Yoko. There's definitely a lot of paws and barks in the house! but I've loved the experience to take care of them, get to know their personalities and sense of humor.

We all enjoy taking long walks and naps, prepare fruit snacks and enjoy each other's company so I'd love to get the opportunity to spend quality time with your pets!

I've had experience with elderly dogs as much as pups, my eldest dog Luka is now 14 years old and we rescued Phoebe when she was only 3 months about 7 years ago, so I'm fully aware of their needs at both stages. I also had to go through a long and strict medical treatment for kidney disease with Yoko, therefore I'm comfortable with providing medication and fulfilling special needs to a dog that needs further assistance.

I can handle multiple pets at the time too and be patient towards your pet's specific needs.

I speak English and Spanish, and I'll start learning French very soon!

Ciboulette, my 17-year old cat, is not easy to handle but Maria made her feel comfortable straight away and sent daily reports so I was fully reassured that in my absence, all was well. I fully recommend Maria as an attentive and trustworthy cat sitter!

Maria est très pro et très consciencieuse ! Un plaisir de lui confier notre petit chat pendant nos vacances.
