Experience with animals and own pets

Since I was little, I always loved pets. I grew up with lots of cats and dogs in my house!

Today, I have 3 rescue dogs - a Chow Chow (Annie), a Maltese Poodle (Casper) and a Yorkie (Scruffy). All of them were severely abused in their earlier lives. Today, they arre the most amazing dogs they can be - loving, energetic and adored.

I also have a rescue dog at my boyfriend's house that I also rescued from the same type of situation as the pups named above.
