Meet the Support Team
Rebekah received her Bachelors of Science in Visualization from the College of Architecture at Texas A&M University, with a focus on graphic design.
Rebekah has over a decade of experience working on social media platforms, digital art, and musical composition. She has been commissioned to make personalized and unique drawings of other people's dogs (if you are interested, let us know).
Rebekah lives in Texas and has a corgi-mix dog named Kevin. She also baby-sits Max, her mom's Coton de Tulear puppy. She enjoys taking her dog for a walk and visiting different cities around the U.S. when she is able.
Hailing from the entertainment capital of the world, Rocky was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was quickly rescued from a bad living environment by the friends of the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society.
Rocky is a 20.3 pound "Chihuahua mix," (a big chihuahua!) with suspected Dauchsund (hence "Chiweenie" just because it's fun to say) and other (Papillon? Pomeranian? Australian Shepherd?).
Rocky enjoys eating, hiking, and playing fetch. When he's not doing any of the above, he's actively guarding his owners' residence or inspiring them to be better humans.
