Pet Care Services

Dear prospective client:
I have been a pug breeder for nearly fifteen years, and although I love pugs, I also love all kinds of animals. I am an experienced pet owner and I have had many different pets over the years from horses to cats to birds and fish. I have always enjoyed the company of animals and that is why I decided not only to cater to pugs but also to share my love of animals with the rest of the animal world.
Thunderstorms is a small family run business, it is intentionally kept small to provide personalized service that most owners and their pets find desirable.
