Wag Wednesday: Sef Gonzalez & Elsa and Shelley

wag-wednesday

Since starting the blog, we’ve interviewed many members of the hospitality industry, and one constant among the interviewees has been a profound love for their pets. We thought it would be great to share this love with our readers. That’s why we launched an ongoing feature called “Wag Wednesday” to showcase industry peeps and their pets. Know someone who wants to be featured? Email us at bark@miamifoodpug.com.

This week, we’re featuring Sef Gonzalez, the Burger Beast, and his dogs, Elsa and Shelley.

#FindMeAHomeFriday: Gina – Magic City Pizza

Chicken Parmesan from Magic City Pizza in Westchester

Gina is 9 years old and a total love bug. Her owner passed away, and the family left her at Animal Control. She’s a mellow, snuggly, cuddly girl who gives LOTS of kisses and is house-trained!

The vet says it’s obvious she was well cared for, but she does have severe arthritis in her hips and knees which slows her down a bit. She’s on anti- inflammatories and a pain medication to help her feel better. She is up and walking around a bit now, but does need to be watched around stairs.

Her perfect family is one where they are around often, not away from the house for more than 2-3 hours, no young children, and are able to keep up with her therapy as they work through this arthritis together.

For more information on this sweet girl, visit her adoption page.
