Debra Walker, our valued assistant to both Martina and Desiree is a native Oregonian, mother of 4 children and grandmother of 8!

Two of her daughters have followed her to the ranch . Anyone on the ranch who needs some nuturing immediately looks for Debra and is never let down ....

How is this for family connections ? This doglover found her way to us after a career in hair dressing and loved it so much ,that she now does hair dressing just on the side . She has a cheerful, can-do attitude that we all enjoy and the dogs love it , when she stays overnight at the ranch to substitute for Martina and all the pups get to cuddle up on the couch and in her bed ! Her daughter Kiera has inherited her Mom's love for dogs and volunteers at the ranch frequently.
