Shaggy Chic is a Pet Boutique located in Historic Wickford Village, Rhode Island. We specialize in everything from collars, leads, beds, home decor, clothing, gourmet treats, and many more specialty items that will have your doggies and kitties begging for more! As a retailer, Shaggy Chic strives to buy and sell items from local vendors and manufacturers. Most of the products are made in the USA.
Shaggy Chic Pet Boutique was established in 2005 by Michelle Clay. As the founder, Michelle created and nurtured a thriving specialty shop for animals. Michelle was very active in "Pittie Love Rescue", an organization dedicated to saving lives of Pit Bulls in and around the New England region. In the few years that she has been involved, Michelle has fostered over thirty dogs. Today, Michelle owns an American Staffordshire Terrier named Jake, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Onyx, a Dogo Argentino, Mason, and a little Shih Tzu named Grizzly. Being a Rhode Island School of Design graduate, Michelle was well versed in the up and coming trends for both humans and doggies. Michelle created what the store is today with love and attention to what the two and four-legged customer wants. In December of 2010, Michelle decided it was time to move on from "The Chic" and sold the business to Brianna Runshe. While Michelle had a handle on the "design" aspect of the shop, Brianna brings a whole new "scientific" perspective to the mix.
Brianna graduated from the University of Rhode Island with an Animal Science and Marine Biology degree. After graduating, Brianna worked as a Veterinary Technician for a local veterinarian with the hope of going off to veterinary school in the future. Almost three years later, a change of pace was needed. Shaggy Chic was on the lookout for a new owner and Brianna seemed to fit the mold. As the new owner, Brianna carries on the tradition of selling quality items in a boutique setting. Brianna is the proud owner of two Peke-a-Poos, Dolly and Mattie, a Lhasa Apso, Baylee, and a very large (we like to say "big-boned") gray kitty named Bells.
