Happiness and Well-Being Consultant


Berenice is the most loving and kind dog we have ever met. We are so lucky to have adopted her back in 2016, after she endured several moments of tough survival, having been merciless let go on the streets.

Her proficiency in savoring treats of all types, colors, sizes and tastes is remarkable, and she is our stand-by doorbell, never missing to announce a single visitor, always making use of endless canine fanfare.

She is in charge of the daily upkeep of our high spirits at
kiklos and constantly reminds us what love and loyalty is all about.
