Experience with animals and own pets

I have a passion and love for all animals, but dogs in particular. I recently adopted a Miniature Pinscher cross named Ben and I've had a few different dogs growing up. Where I currently stay, the landlords have a Huskey named Ice and a Sharpei named Misty. They are also like my own.

I regularly volunteer with Oscar's Arc Woof Project and at Wollies Animal Shelter.

Dogs tend to like me too and people have always been amazed when their aggressive and cautious dogs accept me almost immediately!

When I was in grade 11, I started a tropical fish tank and have since expanded to 5 tanks, of about 1200L combined.

We can definitely recommend him!
