Experience with animals and own pets

I cannot remember a time whereby I was not surrounded by animals. I grew up with mostly dogs as pets and have always had a great love for all animals as well was plants which has encouraged me to pursue a career in biology.

I currently have a Bull mastiff-Ridgeback cross named Zoey who enjoys chasing birds, swimming and belly rubs, as well as a Jack Russell terrier named Dixie who is essentially a little fluffy ball of energy. The unlikely pair are a formidable force when teamed up, with Zoey being the brute force and Dixie having the ability to fit through small spaces effortlessly.

Raising them both has taught me a lot - I love them both unconditionally and wouldn’t have it any other way.
