Here's a reason to have a dog if you need one

Every day I find articles that show how having a dog or any type of pet is beneficial to the owner.  That said, I also find articles that show how loyal, loving, and unselfish our animal companions can be.  Just surfing the net will elicit numerous articles about pets who have "saved" their owners from harm; there are, however, just as many if not more articles that show how cruel and hateful people can be to our animals.  Below is a wonderful article from Britain that illustrates the loyalty and  love a dog has for whoever shows some care and respect to it.  This dog deserves to find a forever home and I hope he does so very soon.

A dog that suffers from epilepsy has helped rescue his carer, after he collapsed in the snow.
Bentley the dog raced back to the rescue centre in Evesham where he is cared, for to get help.
Chris Slight, from Dogs Trust Evesham said: "The weather was atrocious that day and I dread to think what could have happened to Pete if Bentley hadn't raised the alarm."
The canine hero Bentley is still looking for a home.
Bentley led staff to where Pete was, and they helped him back to the centre, where he was wrapped him in dog blankets, to warm him up until the ambulance arrived.

Gentle giant
Pete describes the American bulldog as a "gentle giant" who gets on well with other dogs, and would be best suited to a family with older children.
The rescue centre will pay all vet fees relating to his epilepsy if he is rehomed.
