Hey guys, my name is Helen, I'm 22 and come from Germany. I currently live in north manly for the next 6 months.
In my home country I used to take care of pets since I was a little child. I grew up on my grandmas farm, surrounded by chickens, rabbits, cows, dogs and cats. I love nature and spending my time there with those lovely creatures.
I spend my childhood mostly with my best friend Willi, a golden retriever. We took long walks through forests and fiends. 2005 he died because of cancer.
2013 I got a new dog. His name is Elyos and he's a really big white Swiss shepherd. He's my baby but I left him in Germany at my parents place as long as I'm here in Australia.
I used to go out with him 3-5 times a day. We took long walks, played with balls and frisbee and I taught him the basics like "sit", "stay", "feet","here" and some tricks like "high five". He's a really heavy dog (about 45 kg) so I'm prepared in taking care of giant dogs.
Why do I want to take care of pets?
I miss my prince Elyos sooo bad! And I miss having my day routine of taking walks and burning off energy. Furthermore it's a good opportunity for me, to see places and meet other people with dogs.
AND I LOVE animals, they're like children to me. I love being surrounded by animals and I would love to help them and entertain them whenever I can.
