Experience with animals and own pets

Currently embedding their paw prints onto my heart, I have Zivah, an Alsatian who is almost 2 years old and Daisy, a Fox Terrier crossed with a Dachshund who is now 12/13 years young. The reason I said 12/13 is because Daisy is a rescue puppy from Wetnose animal shelter, so the vet said they can only estimate an age.

She battled to trust us in the beginning, but after a few years in the household she has been referred to as my "tail" or my "girlfriend" because she does not stop following me around. Zivah is a Police Academy reject dog that we took in. You'd think there is something wrong with her due to her rejection from the academy, but she is honestly just too soft for that kind of thing. Her personality is ridiculously sweet and she is our family mascot. We love to refer to Zivah and Daisy as: "The wolf and the fox".

Additional Comments:

Jeandre updated us every day when he is leaving and arriving at our house with location pins and photos.

He took own initiative with certain basic house tasks that we really appreciated.

We were rest assured and could enjoy our holiday, knowing that our pets are well cared for.

Our pets loved him and we could see that he loves animals.

We would recommend Jeandre to anyone.
