I was raised with three dogs in the house and was responsible for the care of one of those dogs, two of our dogs were show quality Old English Sheepdogs, and I helped my family in the care, grooming, and training of these dogs. I worked with a friend in her pet store. For her I cleaned cages and fed the snakes, mice, and rats as well as helping customers in exchange for room and board. This same friend at one time started breeding Wolf-Hybrids for sale; I helped her in the cares of these animals as well as helping re-socialize a pair of rescued Wolf-Hybrids that were not probably cared for. I have done pet sitting for several families, in one case the family bred and raised snakes and rabbits, they also had a small pet shop in their home; they went to NY for vacation for a week. I stayed in their home, fed the animals (mice/rats, a prairie dog, small snakes (fed every few days), large snakes (were fed the day the family left) and cleaned out the cages of the various animals. On several occasions I have provided companionship and care for cats or dogs for friends and acquaintances while they were on vacation or just out of town for the day. Over the years, I have had the following pets: Cats, Dogs, Turtles, Fresh-water fish, and Salt-water fish. I love animals and believe they deserve and require the best care that we can provide to them. I am very drawn to animals and they seem to be just as drawn to me, I often go into homes with animals that are stand offish to strangers and they seem to come around to me in just a matter of moments. Often the owner leaves the room and by the time they return their stand offish dog or cat has climbed into my lap of their own accord.
