Pet of the Week: Edgar

video preview image

MEDFORD, Ore. — Edgar is a whippet, which the Jackson County Animal Shelter said is a rare breed of dog. Whippets are similar to greyhounds, only smaller in size. Edgar, like many dogs of his kind, is gentle and cuddly, but also active. Due to his short hair, Edgar requires a little doggy coat during the cooler months.

    hi, my name is belinda dutey . my husband and i are animal lovers. we bought a house on beatty st in medford about 2 and 1/2 years ago, not knowing that it is in a shady nieghborhood. my husband has had two strokes one in 2008 and the other in october of last year that took the sight in his right eye. he can still do things, but he forgets alot. he can’t drive anymore so that makes things harder us. he feels useless sometimes. well back to our story. we feed a lot of cats and a family of 5 racoons. it is getting vey costly, but we feel these animals did’t ask to be left behind. we spend more on cat food then we do on our own groceries. al we have coming in a month is my husbands social security disability. alot of thes kitties are not fixed, and so many are males that i watch so they don’t fight. if they fight, then they get hurt and theres another problem. if we could only get some kind of help with, maybe getting the ones i can touch nuetured, we would not have the fighting. all of the shelters are full of unwanted pets so we just don’t know whitch way to turn now. we don’t mind taking care of these animals we just want them to to be able to get along with each other. we thank you for your time and hope to hear from you. our # 541-613-4340. or you can send a message to my email. its : belindadutey@yahoo.com
