Experience with animals and own pets

Since I was a toddler I’ve been surrounded with dogs of different breeds from big Rottweilers to a small Maltese, while my cousins would run around playing with each other I would be petting the dogs. That’s where my love for dogs developed and since then I have always wanted to be a vet and own my own veterinary clinic so I could play with dogs all day long, but when I grew up I found out that you don’t just play with dogs at the clinic which was a huge reality check for me!

I currently have two Jack Russells, their names are Syre and Storm. They are 10 months old although I occasionally feel like they're only 5 months because of how active they are, they always want to play and always want constant attention from me. I take them for a walk once or twice a week if I don’t have a lot of work to do. When the heat is unbearable or when I just want an excuse to take my dogs out, I take them to Paul’s ice cream for dog ice cream along with my friends.

When I go to my friend’s house for a study date I always bring Syre and Storm along with me so they can play with my friends’ Great Dane named Willow, who isn’t as active as my dogs, so while we study Syre and Storm usually play outside and Willow sits with us while we revise and pet her.

I feel at ease when I’m surround by dogs and love playing with them and taking care of them, I can’t wait to meet your dogs and create memories with them!
