Akela Black German Shepherd
Hi everyone. Nik and I have recently moved to Carderock Springs with our baby girl, Akela. We moved to New York from South Africa back in 2015 and recently arrived in Maryland. We are British and met in Madagascar, before marrying and living in South Africa for over a decade. Nik travels alot with his job at the World Wildlife Fund, and I am often away with my interests in conservation.
Our Home & Location
Our home is in Carderock Springs, an amazing community in a wonderfully wooded area. Potomac Village is an easy 3miles away and has all the necessary stores (hardware, pharmacies, banks, Starbucks, fuel stations, Safeway & Giant, liquor stores...). The Carderock Springs Elementary School is a 5 minutes walk from the house and Akela loves to chase her ball and generally stretch her legs on the large public field.
Responsibilities & Pets
As we are keen gardeners, we would love it if you could keep the garden watered. We have a community herb garden in the driveway, so don't be surprised if neighbours pitch up to harvest a bunch of parsley! The indoor plants will also need a quick drink. The back garden is fenced off so you can relax when Akela is in the back yard - however, we don't tend to leave her outdoors alone as she is very much an indoors family member. Your main responsibility is to care for Akela and make sure she always has water in her bowl and is let out when necessary.
