Roxana - Bather

Hey, my name is Roxana, and I am a new member of Ola Puppy. I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Toby and an Opaline Quaker parrot called Pico.  My favourite part of working at Ola Puppy is meeting all the different puppies and seeing how unique they are! I love seeing their different personalities; it never fails to make me happy!


When I’m not working at Ola Puppy, you’ll usually catch me reading, taking on new hobbies, and learning more about the world and the people in it!
