Experience with animals and own pets

I have an overwhelming love for all animals. I was lucky enough to grow up with my best friend, Blackie, a loving Scotty cross who sadly passed away at the age of 19.

My cat, Tom, also sadly passed away recently and we as a family are now in the process of looking to adopt a new addition to the family.

In the 2016 and 2017 I was in the UK for 6 months at a time for sport where I had the opportunity to stay in family's homes and become family with their beloved pets. I was also expected to look after the owner’s homes when they were away and take care of their fury friends which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Jacques lived with us here in England when he was here playing cricket for our local team. Jacques was here for six months He was a very good pleasant young man. While he was with us we had a few days away and left our 2 dogs with himand had no worries about the. He has been over to see us since and both dogs went straight to him as if he had never been away. i would recamend Jacques for this job.
