Experience with animals and own pets

My name is Karma Jacobs. I have two pugs at home that I love very much! Our oldest pug is a fawn pug named Mr. Chu and he loves sleeping all day, eating and getting lots of hugs and kisses. Our younger black pug is named Romeo and he loves playing, chasing Mr. Chu around, cuddling and eating. I love taking them on walks in the Dog Park near our house and seeing them interact with other dogs. Seeing dogs playing, wagging their tails and running around freely makes me so happy!

I am currently studying Occupational Therapy and my dream is to one day do therapy with dogs, because I know the impact that a dog’s love can have on a sick or disabled person is huge! I am amazed at how loyal and caring dogs can be to their owners and I want to use that to help people.

I have also been to Wollies, where we slept over with homeless dogs to help them feel loved and give them the attention they deserve. Seeing dogs without loving owners makes me so sad and I think that every doggy deserves to be treated as royalty!
