Experience with animals and own pets

I am blessed to have my sweet dog named Russell, who is a cross between a Jack Russell and a Dachshund. I got him on Christmas Eve of 2016 from the SPCA and all he has ever done is continuously care, protect and spread love and affection to my family and I.

Russell loves staying fit and goes on weekly jogs, and even sometimes sprints around the neighbourhood with me. One of my favourite memories with him was when it was a stormy night with thunder and hail and Russell and I stayed snuggly under the blankets all night.
