Experience with animals and own pets

I have three gorgeous dogs: a wirehaired Dachshund named Kayla, a Border Collie cross named Maya and a Husky named Togo. They were all adopted from the SPCA.

I've had my two smaller babies for 10 and 5 years, respectively, and adopted Togo just a week ago!

I often look after Bose, the Labrador, next door, and a friend's two Poodles, Shandy and Whiskey, down the road.

I absolutely adore all furkids!
