Experience with animals and own pets

My life has always consisted of my fur babies. My parents love animals, so of course it runs in the family. As long as I can remember, I've always had fur babies from dogs and birds to hamsters. I currently have four fur babies, who are my happiness. Xy is a 10 year old mix between a Dachshund and a Jack Russell. He is the feisty one and he is extremely protective over his humans. He is also very sensitive and hates us going in the pool. He always jumps in to try pull us out because he thinks we are drowning.

Next is my big baby Texas. He is a 7-year-old gorgeous white German Shepard and is super big and super friendly. The love of my life is Blue, who is a 4 year old little Yorkie, who has absolutely changed my life and honestly is the reason I smile each day. Lastly, we have Tom, my beautiful cat. He is definitely a party animal, as he goes out all night and returns around 4am and sleeps the rest of the day. I've always looked after the animals of family and friends, as well as volunteering for the Anti-cruelty League during high school.
