Little did she know, she would find her ultimate passion and something she loved to do every day! Mandi has a special way with animals, and feels like dogs and cats are just drawn to her!
Who is Barbie?
Barbie is Mandi's dog (a beautiful lab/greyhound mix & rescue) and the inspiration behind Barbie & Company! Barbie & Mandi have been together for 11 amazing years and are truly inseparable!
Carrie, Pet Sitter
Over the last 40 years, Carrie has had her share of many dogs & cats. She is responsible and will be very loving towards your pet! BONUS: She is a professional photographer, so your photo updates will be top notch. She also worked at an emergency vet hospital for 4 years, so she is experienced with observing signs of a distressed or hurt animal. This is a direct quote from Carrie: "Since my kids won't give me any grandchildren, and my husband won't let me have any more pets, I need to share my love of animals some other way."

Faith is the newest addition to the Barbie & Company team! She is a college student helping us out while she’s back in Durham. She has always been drawn to animals, (especially poodles) & has grown up having dogs of her own as well as sitting for her neighbors and family friends! She loves to be outside as much as possible, especially with furry friends!
