Liam was born in Russia and adopted by a family in Virginia when he was eight. Since he was new to America, his parents got him a Golden Retriever, Fred, and a Brown and Black Somali Cat, Buddy, so he would have some immediate friends that didn’t need to speak the same language to communicate with him. Buddy and Fred were the kindest souls, and were always by Liam’s side as he grew up. Sadly, Fred and Buddy eventually passed away, and Liam’s family moved to California, where they got a Saint Bernard puppy, so tiny he could barely see her eyes behind the ball of fur. They named her Bonnie, and Liam knew he had found the cutest puppy in the world. Bonnie soon grew big enough to give Liam’s little brother rides around the house. In six years she weighed 200 pounds. Because she was so strong and energetic, Liam, as the older sibling, took responsibility for walking and running around the beach with her. Bonnie had a great West Coast life. She passed away in the summer of 2015, leaving Liam with a St. Bernard sized hole in his heart, looking for any opportunity for canine companionship. Liam is a very outdoorsy person, so in his spare time, he loves to take dogs on hikes, stand up paddleboards, biking trails, longboard rides, and even kayaking. So being a dog walker and dog runner is the perfect fit for Liam, and Doggie Joggie is lucky to have him!
