Michael Moriera – Head Groomer and Maintenance

Michael is a native of Beaufort SC and has spent much of his life in the Lowcountry.  He loves the people in this part of the country and he works hard to exceed their expectations when they visit Beaufort Dog.  Michael proudly served his country as part of  the United States Air Force and is very proud of his Portuguese heritage.   He owns three Schnauzers, Snuffy, Abby, and Pono, a Lab named Walker, and a Dachsund named Pee-Wee.

Lisa Purcell – Dog Wrangler

Originally from a small town outside of Baltimore, Lisa has been a resident of the Lowcountry since 2005. She became a part of the Beaufort Dog family in February of 2010 after she was adopted by her best friend, Zooey, a sweet Labradoodle in much need of training. Accountant and Freelance Writer by week, Lisa spends her weekends at the Beaufort Dog playing with the dogs and leading the Agility Club.  When she’s not working, she can usually be found reading, playing one of many musical instruments, or teaching Zooey cute tricks.
