Experience with animals and own pets

I have four furbabies of my own. Two 4 year old Toypoms (Lexi & Layla), a little 8 month old Jack Russel (Emma) and a 2 year old German Shepherd X (Zeke). Zeke and Emma are both rescue dogs. I often take all my dogs to Walkhaven where Zeke enjoys running around and swimming in the dams. I have had different animals throughout my life including 2 horses, a chameleon, 2 iguanas, plenty of fish, 3 hamsters as well as 2 cats and excluding all the dogs my family have owned while growing up.

I donate towards different animal shelters such as FORA, 9th Day Animal Rescue and SPCAs quite often and love being involved and helping where I can. I cannot imagine my life without animals.
