Experience with animals and own pets

I feel blessed that I am able to own two separate sets of pets. I seem to have a thing for Jack Russells and Pitbulls. At my house, I have a two year old Pitbull, Biscuit, who is the sweetest boy, and a three year old Jack Russell, Ruby, who is like a light in my life, I also have little Jill, who is a sixteen year old Jack Russell that we adopted from the SPCA fourteen years ago. She has managed to outlive countless other pets over the years. She is deaf and going blind, but she still has so much life and love left in her!

At my boyfriend’s house, we have a Jack Russell, Benjamin, who is three years old and stole my heart the moment I met him. There's something nostalgic about him; he has the sweetest soul. We also have Sam, who is a one year old Pitbull girl. She was rescued off the streets from men selling dogs for dog fighting when she was just 4 weeks old. She was so neglected and unhealthy, but we nursed her back to health and she has grown so much since then. She is full of beans and loves to cuddle!

I have such a love for my animals and wouldn't be who I am without them. I have experience in looking after the homes and pets of family and friends and enjoy spending time with animals.
