About us

Vanessa Rossman and Susan Levine joined forces as partners in crime when they first met in High School.

Vanessa’s extensive knowledge of production and attention to detail has landed her at some of the nation’s hottest advertising agencies.

With a background in art, Susan went on to become an award winning Creative Director.

She has worked with many A-list celebrities and has earned herself an Emmy nomination. (Which gave her parents down in Boca very good bragging material.)

Today, still with their sense of humor intact, keen sense of style, and unconditional love for their furry pals, Tony & Rudy, Vanessa and Susan have formed TORU. A brand new lifestyle company with one mission in mind -- to rock your dog’s world.

Their creative expertise, savvy production skills, and love for those who walk on all fours combined make for a great team who are ready to make their debut in the canine fashion industry.
