The reasons for excluding a dog in your home are diverse health problems owners or animals, querulous neighbors by pets, moving house, divorce or because the animals were a gift that is not wanted, although in Mexico the main reason is the lack of resources to maintain it.
“Those looking to get rid of their dogs is because that is not what they thought life would be with them. Comes a time when they can no longer keep them or do not fit in the house,” according to the director of the animal protection organization Health and Environmental Law Call Claudia Lindsey.
Some people seek their dogs away because they have no patience to care for them, clean them, educate them or take them out for walks. “At first shoe bitten are getting rid of the dog,” says psychologist Claudia Flame.
Having a terminal illness is also an important factor that the dogs are in the street. “Women are dying of cancer and gets rid of the family pet that belonged to the sick or known inherited”.
But the main factor in Mexico is the lack of funds to keep the animal and provide necessary medical services. “The meat and cereals, ie the basis of the development of the croquettes are more expensive. The price of a kilo of hash is increasing, but not the salaries of the owners,” says Call.
Where do I send my dog?
The first step in recognizing that it is no longer willing or able to have a dog is to contact an animal welfare organization nonprofit to seek a home he says Martha Medrano, director of the Association for Animal Rights and Protection AC Environmental (APRODA).
In these places the first thing is to recommend to the owners of the dog sterilization, apply a rabies vaccine, a general clinical check croquettes leave in place while a new home is found. “If people do not have financial resources for medical care, humane house covers the costs, as we do in APRODA” said Medrano.
The protective housing, with support from the media and social networks, we seek a family according to the personality of the animal. “We look for a house that is appropriate, because if a dog has lived with children, play ball and walk not as easy to adapt to adult life,” recounts Medrano.
The small animals adjust more quickly in their new homes, but the big take longer. On average ranging from three months to one year in a dog suit, says the directive.
We must ask if the shelter has legal registration, to avoid falling into protective homes only profit from the animals, indicating Amezcua Mario Lopez, who runs the small animal veterinary clinic of the University Center for Biological and Agricultural Sciences (CUCBA).
“They must be registered with the municipal or state law and the vast majority of those homes protective serious work in coordination with rabies centers, veterinary medical colleges or universities,” says science teacher.
Call Claudia says that unfortunately the animals crowded shelters to generate pity on people and make donations.
Shelters serious work with transparency, ie, keep records of dogs and the new families that will house the animals. “When the dog finds a family, the former owner can know the address and return to see his animal.”
Owners should be basic questions before leaving their animals, says Abigail Carrillo, a veterinarian who works in California, in the Lake Elsinore Animal Hospital.
Among them: Why do you want to get rid of your pet? If the answer is because he has a bad temper, the owner could seek help from a specialist to improve the attitude of your animal. If it’s because you can not afford to keep it, we should ask if there are free medical services near your neighborhood, as they do some universities. If no solution should be found to a humane house, says the specialist.
To give a dog for adoption must be honest, says psychologist Claudia Flame, Director of Health and Environmental Law is recommended that a list of dog attitudes. “If urine inside the house, if he bites the furniture or shoes, so that the new owner takes no surprises and then leave it in the street.”
We must find a new home with at least two or three months in advance, says Claudia Flame, but ensures that adoption is not a panacea.
“Thousands of animals are put up for adoption each year, but does not mean that they will have a good life, because we have seen that abuse them, leave it in the street, stopping at markets, dog fighting or breeding.”
In an extreme case euthanasia is better, especially if you will be helpless and medical needs, says Claudia Flame.
Before adopting an animal is important to consider the size, the cost of food and medical services, the health of the dog and the owner, the home space, the time devoted to your pet and make a consensus that whole family agrees with the arrival of the animal, notes psychologist LLama Lindsey.
“Bringing a dog into a home without these considerations brings a public health problem,” Mario Lopez tells Amezcua, Master of Science from the University of Guadalajara (University of Guadalajara).
The owners, by not making an assessment of what it takes possession of a pet, take to the streets and conducive to increase the dog population. “In the campaign we UdeG rabies, and on average we know that there are four dogs owner for every 10 inhabitants. But there is a floating population that is playing indiscriminately, because twice a year dogs are from 6-8 puppies, “says Lopez Amezcua.
Owning a dog entails responsibilities, Claudia recalls. “It is cultural in Mexican families has a pet dog, the problem begins when people do not analyze the costs of maintenance or home space.”
It is a 7 year old bitch who lives in Palma de Mallorca. She is very affectionate and can not be separated from one of his mistresses. Their dependence is total, is like his mother.
How is that person everywhere has never been necessary to put strap desperdigue not every time he goes to the street. That certainly is an advantage for her and for their owners.
Home shares space with another dog and a cat. Who do you think gets along better? Incredibly with the cat. And they say that dogs and cats are being killed …
I like tomatoes
He is very intelligent (as you can see she falls asleep reading books) and obey their owners if they ask something. When I eat always prepared, although occasionally gives to eat tomatoes. It’s strange, but she loves.
If cancer is a terrible disease in humans, for dogs is no less, not to say the suffering of the owner to see how your pet suffers. The big question: What causes cancer in dogs? A very important factor is age certainly, is that as the dog gets older, your chances of getting the disease increase greatly. Another reason is that there has been adequately sterilized pet.

Treating cancer in dogs depends on the veterinarian’s diagnosis, which will determine what type of cancer it is and Dende. This will send complete blood analysis and urine, biopsy, cytology and radiographs. Depending on the results indicate the treatment, which can be as wide as drugs, surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, cryosurgery-to-small tumors, and photodynamic therapy-inject dye into cancer cells.
To easily prevent some types of cancer, testicular, breast, in dogs it is best to sterilize early, avoid prolonged sun exposure, and something as mundane as the dog should be palpated both brushing or massaging.

The domestic dog, also known as Canis lupus familiaris, originated from the domestication of the gray wolf (Canis lupus). The domestication process continues even today, if we take into account the fact that the crossing of dogs with the aim of creating “designer dogs” he continues. There are several theories explaining how the process of domestication took place. Therefore, according to some studies, the wolf pups that are caught at an early age to be raised and tamed by man, are easily trained and socialized.
However, some researchers say that in the case of wolf pups are already a few months, it is very difficult to get any socialization or domestication, and attempts are rarely successful. Many scientists believe that orphaned wolf pups adopted by human beings were tamed quickly and are considered first dogs.
According to Dr. Raymond Coppinger of Hampshire College (Massachusetts), types of wolves that were more interactive with humans passed these traits to the next generation, and it was easier to reach a complete domestication. Coppinger speaks of a particular behavior trait was essential to transform the wolf into a dog, and this feature is called “flight distance”. He referred to the distance maintained by an animal of a man before fleeing what they perceive as danger.
In this sense, the animals that live at a distance less than humans are likely to stay. Dr. Coppinger says the domesticated can eat, even in the presence of humans. This is precisely what the wolves can not do.
