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!

This was my anxious puppy’s first time without me and Maria made sure he was calm, happy and entertained. I came home to a well-cared for and happy pup!

Maria is very kind and available. She took good care of my rabbit. She sends photos during all her visits!
