I'm Adriana, owner and Chief Pet-Loving Officer at Shoreline Happy Paws.

After leaving school, I found my refuge in animals and started dog walking for a living in 110-degree heat in Qatar, my home for six years. Business took off quickly, and we grew to serve 250 clients.

Then I met my husband, Chris, a rugby-loving Brit and we moved back to the U.S. in 2017. That summer, I started Shoreline Happy Paws in the CT Shoreline. What a treat it is not to walk dogs in sweltering heat anymore! But now, all bundled up at 10 degrees, we walk them. Rain or shine (or snow), we’re always there!


Chris is an animal lover and an essential helping hand at Shoreline Happy Paws. Chris is originally from the UK and grew up in Germany. Then also lived in Qatar, where he met Adriana and was introduced to the pet sitting world adventures.

He is obsessed with Corgis, Rottweilers, and rugby. He is a splendid Massage Therapist by trade, and an amazing belly rubber with pups.

I have had a great passion and love for animals ever since I was young. Shoreline Happy Paws is a great company where I can pursue that passion! I have accumulated over 130 hours of community service at animal shelters where I was able to help animals in need. I have two dogs myself, a little jack Russell mix named Molly and a black lab named Chachi. I also play soccer and I love to stay active as much as I can.
