Experience with animals and own pets

Since I was young I have always had a huge love for animals. I currently have a 12 year old Male Rottweiler named Bond who I absolutely love and I could not imagine my life without. I love getting home from varsity and spending time outside with him from swimming in the pool to running around and playing with a ball or just giving him a nice old rub.

I have experience in looking after many people’s animals in the past at their homes, feeding, playing with and just making sure they’re ok and most of all happy. I have also spent time volunteering at the Johannesburg Zoo and as well as the SPCA, cleaning cages and feeding and playing with the animals.
