Experience with animals and own pets

Growing up I never had a pet, although I'd wished for one. It wasn't until I was around 12 that my family first got an Alsatian, and then another one and finally a gorgeous albino Dobermann, that I fully got to experience the love that comes with having a dog (or 3!). Although one is no longer with us and I no longer stay with my parents, my experience with pets still remains fresh in my mind.

As of now, I don't have any pets of my own, but one day soon. I enjoy playing with any animals I come across if permitted, as well as taking after my friends’ animals when they are away. I absolutely love pets and have no qualms about working with them. I am punctual, hard-working and a fast-learner so there's no obstacle I can't overcome.
