Experience with animals and own pets

I have a 3 year old male Rottweiler named Tyson, I have had him since he was about 3 months old, having him in my life has ignited a passion for animals and this is because I see how they bring joy and love into a person’s life.

I have a great fascination for big dogs such as Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, Great Danes and the like, these dogs often have bad reputations but for me they are absolutely sweet! I spend most of my time with my dog as he is a big dog and requires a lot of attention and exercise, so he does not get frustrated. Some of the things we do include playing fetch, tug of war and obstacle courses.

Taking care of animals is a true pleasure and I really can't wait to get to meet and engage with more pets as to me they are more than just animals - they are important members of the family and should be treated with respect. Can't wait to meet your precious pets!
