Cherie loves the outdoors, especially the dunes where she loves to ride her quad and spend quality time with her family. Cherie has a “soft spot” for brachycephalic breeds and loves to love them with hugs and kisses. She has three dogs of her own, two pugs and a French bulldog and someday would love to add more squishy faces to her family.
