Smooches from the pooches

It all started about two years ago when Hamilton was visiting a friend who had a dog. Suddenly, the dog started to have seizures, so Hamilton tried to call three taxis and two Ubers, but no one wanted to take the poor dog to the vet. That's when the man got the idea to start transporting animals himself.

Now, "Taxi Dog" is Hamilton's main source of income and he is more than happy to be working with the most loving customers in the world.

We asked Hamilton how it feels to be seeing and helping lots of animals every day. The man shared that it's just wonderful (wouldn't have guessed differently). "Every day I make new friends who are always loving and faithful."

The idea to take selfies with the passengers came when Hamilton was giving a ride to a Rottweiler. It was sitting next to the driver's seat and the man was dying to take a picture with it. Since then, Hamilton takes selfies with every pet he's transporting.

Pet owners usually ask Hamilton for his services to bring their fluffy creatures to veterinary clinics for various treatments or examinations, pet shops, shopping trips and beaches.

The most enjoyable part of Hamilton's job is when he safely brings pets back home knowing that the animal is healthy and happy.

I'm so glad you picked me up when you did. I was afraid my coat was getting dust. Keeping it this white is hard work.
