Experience with animals and own pets

I share my home with three happy dogs - Taylor, Ceaser and Bella. Our youngest dog is a mixed breed and is always in the mood to play fetch and swim - even in the winter time. My Labrador is a rescue dog that we adopted after he was abandoned and my eldest dog loves to be brushed, loves to lay with you when you’re in the kitchen preparing any kind of food and loves going for walks.

Growing up, I had two birds who always kept me company, and loads of fish throughout the years. I also had two small dogs, but unfortunately, I lost them due to old age. I'm always the one who looks after the dogs in my home and takes care of them.
