Liz Acosta

Liz is a pink-haired feminist with lots of good stories to tell. Originally from Los Angeles, Liz dabbled in the entertainment industry, freelance photography, dog-sitting, and fashion before finally throwing everything in her car and moving to San Francisco.

She rides her pink bike around the city pretending she's in the Death Star trench scene from Star Wars and she is almost exclusively powered by coffee. 

Liz's top stories for Dogster include A Dog's 5 Stages of Grief When You Leave the House, which has earned over 100,000 unique visitors. The humorous photo post resonates strongly with dog owners on Facebook, which accounts for the majority of its referral traffic. In second place is Liz's post featuring Cheescake the Capybara, a giant rodent who fosters orphaned and abandoned puppies. The post was picked up by Jezebel and distributed on Reddit. Cheesecake is followed up by The Best Wedding Proposal Ever, Brought to You by 16 Pugs, which landed on BuzzFeed.

Liz created the weekly column called the Monday Miracle, highlighting inspirational stories about dogs who've overcome tremendous adversity.
