|Rescue Me ID: 16-06-28-00040Henry (male)|
Henry was found near death, staggering in traffic near Naples, Italy. We picked him up and rushed him to the vet. In addition to being emaciated and severely dehydrated, Henry was diagnosed with Leishmania and Erlichia. The treatment has been rough on Henry-we estimate his age to be between 5 and 7, but he has not had an easy life. In spite of that, Henry has become one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met. He is still healing, and will always need to be on medication for the leishmania, but he deserves to be happy and treated with love and respect. He has been great with my kids and my friends' kids. Henry is a gentle giant. He requires very little exercise and wants to spend his time just being near people. He is afraid of thunder and fireworks, and will bark at cats and strangers outside of his property, but he has loved everyone he meets. He is calm and mellow in the car and at the vet. He likes to chew bones and tasty treats, and he loves food but has shown no food aggression or resource guarding. We are desperate for a good home for Henry. Our time in Italy is limited and unfortunately, Henry cannot return to the U.S. With us because of the leishmania. If he has to go to a shelter here, it is basically a slow, painful death sentence.

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Italy|
Dogs can make good pets in Italy 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!
