Experience with animals and own pets

I’ve had my Juliet for four years now. She is a Jack Russell and she owns my heart. My best time with her would be running around in the yard or just having some down time on my bed with her. My love for animals has been present throughout my life. I grew up with all my fur babies. My angel Fox Terrier named Puppy was so close to me that she only wanted me near her when she gave birth. I had to help her give birth and only then would she feel safe.

Animals are really your best friends. My fur babies can just tell when I'm upset and will protect me at any stage. I would love to open up my own animal shelter one day. In the near future, I plan to adopt a senior fur kid from an SPCA so I can make him happy in his last days. I've also done volunteer work at SPCA’s. I'd be the perfect companion for your fur baby.
