Experience with animals and own pets

Ever since I was little, my life has been filled with the joy and love of animals

Currently, the fur baby that has stolen my heart is Milo. He's a 5-year old Jack Russell - Dachshund cross who loves to play and sleep all day. I love him dearly and all responsibilities was bestowed upon me, from potty training, teaching him tricks and the dreaded vet visits.

All my friends have pets that range from the usual dogs and cats to bunnies, rats and hedgehogs. I have adopted them all as my own.

I make regular donations to the Booysens SPCA, and adore animals of all types!
