Adoption - Special care

We rescue and help.
Dogs with inborn illnesses and accidental injuries, requiring special care.

Any healthy dog needs a permanent home, while dogs with injuries, trauma and other congenital or accidental illnesses are especially in need of a family and home.

We know that for most Europeans an injury or illness (congenital or accidental) is not an obstacle for a dog to live, the only obstacles are impatience and lack of understanding.

We also know that for most people in Europe dogs requiring special care are not a heavy burden, as people's attitude towards these dogs is the same as towards healthy ones: dogs requiring special care can also give people the same reason to feel and experience joy, happiness and friendship.

Therefore, in the question of dogs requiring special care as a result of congenital illness or accidental injury we turn to people in Europe, because we (extremely need help) are in extreme need of help in finding homes and families for such dogs.

180. Gerda (N)
(Added: 24.08.2009)
Birth date: 01.2006
Height: 60 cm

Gerda (suffers from epilepsy). Birth date: 01.2006, height - 60 cm, weight - 35 kg.
Has been vaccinated, chipped, sterilized.
Gerda was found wandering around near a metro station when she was 6 months old. Since then Gerda has been living in a temporary foster family with other dogs.
She gets along well with dogs she knows, she is cautious with strange dogs, and after approaching them usually waits for their reaction. Gerda behaves well with cats at home and outside.
Adults and kids can stay around Gerda safely. She doesn't bark at the door bell, and behaves well when alone. She likes eating alone and will give a warning if another dog approaches her bowl.
Gerda walks well on leash, if allowed to run freely she will come back only when she becomes exhausted of running.
In the beginning she looked like a normal puppy, was very playful, happy and energetic. However, by the age of 3, we noticed some abnormality in her health, and medical check-ups and further tests showed she had epilepsy.
Epileptic strokes happen regularly, approx. once in 12-15 days. At present, we continue medical observation in order to reduce the number of strokes to one in a month (we will probably have to increase the drug dose).
I try to do everything I can to provide the necessary care and improve the environment she lives in, however with 10 other dogs and 3 cats at my home, I obviously have limited possibility to take better care of Gerda.
I am asking for help from those who have some experience of living with an epileptic dog and can provide her with a more liberal and calming place to live.
But most importantly, I am looking for people who would understand and sympathize with Gerda. Gerda is under a constant medication treatment, she must take medicine 2 times a day. Gerda doesn't have any other problems, she behaves well at home and understands that people support her life by giving her the medicine.
