  • Description


    I am 37 years old woman living in the north part of Finland 43 kilometres from Rovaniemi city with my fiance and our 87 alaskanhuskies. We live in the quiet area surrounded by nature. The only sounds are our dogs howling few times a day. Besides the dogs we also have a few chickens. We have a business activity but workawayers are not going to be helping with that. Only helping at home feeding the dogs, cleaning the fences and playing with the puppies and help us with building projects and some house tasks.
