Her favorite breed is Queensland Heelers because they are so loyal and smart and have such great personalities. Rosalie had her first job at age 15 and has worked ever since, joining Sassy Pooch in 2012. Her hobbies include photography (including pet photography), gardening, cooking, and baking.

Ruben Zuniga

Ruben Zuniga

Ruben is a native of Gilroy and has three pitbulls at home. He was a natural fit for Sassy Pooch with his instinctive ability to create a leadership role with pets who often challenge others (both human and 4-legged) around him/her. He has an outgoing personality and is not afraid to pull a prank or two! He enjoys both watching and playing basketball.

“At Sassy Pooch, we focus on the overall wellness of each pet, treating each personality with respect and superior care. We love seeing our guests go home happy, secure, confident and looking fabulous!”
