Experience with animals and own pets

Since a very young age I have had a passion for all kinds of animals. I own two dogs, or rather, they own me!.

One is a Boerbull-Pitbull cross that we rescued from the SPCA, more than a year ago. His name is Beer and he's the most loveable and adorable pet, who just loves to cuddle, along with getting belly rubs. The other is a Yorkie-Picanease cross 'Yorkanpease', who's absolutely full of life. His name is Thunder, he enjoys sleeping on top of my head and loves to nibble ankles and toes.

I also have experience looking after birds and cats. As I mentioned, I adore all animals and will always look after them as if they are my own.
