Man’s Best Friend

Try Wolfie’s Treats for your four-legged friend! Jane Hayes Handrahan, Southie resident and dog lover, is taking treat making into her own hands. After growing tired of “not so healthy” dog treats, Jane decided to make her own. She uses 100% all natural chicken, beef and pork – and of course a little bit of love. She tested her recipe on a local, select market of four-legged friends, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. You can find Wolfie’s All-Natural Treats at K&8th Butcher Shop, Deirfiur (Be on the lookout for Jane’s collars and leashes coming to Deirfiur), Deja Brew, Roza Lyons and Lambert’s in Dorchester. Jane will also do custom orders – ask about her beef and chicken twists on a stick – just message her directly on Facebook!
