About Syma

Hello! I love animals and I don't care who knows.

I currently live in North Melbourne (right off Errol Street) with my partner who loves furry friends just as much as I do. We live in a one bedroom apartment alone, which allows us to have more room for us and your pets! I currently work as an animal carer full time, which allows me to have a flexible schedule and ample time to spend with your pet and provide them with the love and care they need.

I recently moved to Melbourne from New York City, where I lived for 8 years! Born and raised in San Francisco.During my free time I enjoy being outdoors (camping, hiking, swimming, walks), riding around on my bike (rarely take public transit or cars unless necessary), reading, and hanging out with friends.

I grew up with all kinds of pets (rodents, cats, dogs) and have always loved animals. I'm the person cuddling up to your furry loved one if given the chance and always asking to pet any dog that passes me on the street. I have owned two dogs, Ashton who I adopted when he was 3 months old, and Chloe who I adopted in New York (they're in my photos). I helped rescue and foster a beautiful kitten (Stella) that was in a dangerous environment and nursed her back to health and got her into a safe home with amazing parents.

Since I just moved to Melbourne I had to leave my dog Chloe with my mother in California, until I adjust and get situated in this amazing new city. I really miss my own pet and sadly can't have her here with me at this moment, but I would love to be able to have a furry companion to take care of and love and let it be yours! Since I have been an owner of pets myself, I understand the dedication and commitment required to look after your pet/s! I would take great pride in house sitting, I'd take great pride in walking, feeding, and providing endless affection to your gorgeous pets.

Dog Boarding
Heidi, 2019-08-12

We left our 5 month old puppy Pinchy with Syma for an evening while we attended a concert as he is not confident being alone at night yet. Syma was sitting some other dogs and she noticed our tiny pomchi pup was shy around them so she took great care to snuggle him until he was confident enough to play with the others. We got updates from her throughout the evening and even her partner enjoyed hanging out with our pup. He was happy and sleepy when we picked him up. I would not hesitate to have Syma babysit him again in future, you can tell she truly loves dogs. :)

Syma was a lovely companion for our two dogs. She listened to the concerns we had about socialising with other dogs and was happy to be flexible in her approach. Both dogs loved Syma and we will be connecting again in the near future! Thanks Syma!
