Experience with animals and own pets

I grew up with a wide range of animal species, such as dogs, cats, birds, bunnies and fish. I am comfortable with any animal. For me, a dog truly is a man's best friend - a bond sometimes stronger than that of a relative.

I used to have a Staffie and a Miniature Doberman. They were the best of friends. I am currently in the process of adopting a Staffie from a shelter. I believe all abandoned animals deserve a second chance at having a happy, loving home.

I have looked after friends, family and employers’ pets. I often volunteer at animal shelters and share their advertisements to my network to assist in finding good homes for abandoned animals.
