Rescue Me ID: 16-02-07-00227pedro (female)

English Setter Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Poor Pedro doesn't have much time left... He is a little blind and his owners wanted to put him to sleep. He urgently needs your help! Pedro is a very sweet, six-year-old dog (13kg). He suffered from epilepsy and had seizures sporadically, 2-3 times a year. They didn't stop him living normally but his life consisted of time spent between the garden and a garage. The latest seizure was a bad one and nobody realised because it happened at night... so bad that he went a little blind! His owners wanted to put him to sleep but luckily volunteers stepped in and rescued him and he is now in a boarding kennels that they are paying for. The ... (Read More)epilepsy has caused some brain damage which is why he can't see any more, but in other ways he is like any other dog... he comes up for cuddles and when he knows food is around, he will be the first to jump up. He participates in everyday life and feels and reacts to things as any dog would. He hasn't had any seizures since and takes medicine daily for it. He gets on well in a home environment, is ok with other dogs and is housetrained. His latest vet visit revealed a premature ageing which is why they believe he may not live long... we don't know how much time he has left. Even if Pedro only lives another year, he should spend that time in a home, with a family that loves and cares for him as he is. He adjusts well at home and moves around by himself. He will be chipped, vaccinated. He only needs an home, his daily medicine and a lot of love. Can you help? https://youtu.be/lTNNi1_1-bU (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Switzerland
    Dogs can make good pets in Switzerland if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Switzerland Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
