Experience with animals and own pets

I have one dog, Toffee (cross Labrador/ Husky) she is a rescue from the Kruger Park and is around 7 years old. She loves to swim in the pool, attend parkruns every Saturday, and assist to motivate me to run up hills when sprint training in the street. Toffee has a kind nature and will love anyone she meets

We have had a bunch of dogs! From a pedigree Basset hound to an unidentified pavement special breed but were all loved the same.

I have previously volunteered at a Husky rescue called the Husky Foundation, as well as Arc Animals. I've house sat and looked after wild cats, really old furry cats, dogs who love to drool as well as ones with large appetites!
