Experience with animals and own pets

I have been surrounded by pets and animals all my life. My home has been filled with all sorts of animals like dogs (jack-russells, cocker spaniels, boerboels, and my personal favourite - pitbulls), fish, hamsters, a snake, a parrot and (at one point) rats.

I have also always been fascinated with wild animals - always taking trips to the Krugersdorp and Rietvlei Nature Reserves as well as the Kruger National Park with my family. I feel that I always get along with pets and ever since I was little, I have been 'that kid' who isn't scared to pick up the grasshopper or save the butterfly - my heart will always prioritizes animals.

Photography is a favourite hobby of mine and pairing that with any kind of animal makes me ecstatic. I look forward to meeting your furkids and showering them with love.
