“Robert Pattinson Rescues dog and Gives Him a New Life to Be Happy About.”

Who is Robert Pattinson?  London-born Robert Pattinson found his acting niche almost instantly, kicking off his career with a string of fantasy roles. After catching the acting bug through amateur theater, the young thespian made his first film appearance at the age of 18, appearing in 2004’s Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King, based on a Nordic legend. He followed this up by joining the Harry Potter franchise the following year, playing Cedric Diggory in Goblet of Fire, as well as the subsequent movies. Having captured the hearts of many teens and fantasy fans, Pattison then signed on to play the dreamy vampire heartthrob Edward in the film adaptation of the young-adult novel Twilight. Twilight sweep the hearts of many teen girls worldwide.  Shortly, after came the series of films, 2009’s New Moon, 2010’s Eclipse, 2011’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and 2012’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, would make Pattinson a household name, but the actor would continue to add other films to his roster simultaneously, starring in the tearjerker Remember Me in 2010, and the 1930’s period film Water for Elephants in 2011. 2012 turned into a busy year for the popular heartthrob as he starred in Bel Ami, worked for David Cronenberg in Cosmopolis, and marked the end of the films that made him a huge movie celebrity with the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Did you know…?

Robert saved a dog, who was five weeks old at the time, from a kill shelter in Louisiana the day before he was about to be euthanized.  He named the dog Bear and Bear’s life changed in an instant as he went straight from the shelter in Louisiana onto a plane with Robert to his home in Los Angeles.

Robert joked as he was telling Ellen DeGeneres and her audience that once he landed, he gave Bear some fancy meats to eat and Robert joked that he had actually turned his new dog into a Hollywood diva dog by accident.

Why Should You Rescue a Dog Instead Of Buying One?

1. You’ll save a life

Sadly, around 2.7 million dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the United States simply because too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters. Because there is limited space at shelters, staff members sometimes need to make very hard decisions to euthanize animals who have not been adopted.  The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. By adopting from a private humane society or animal shelter, breed rescue group, or the local animal control agency, you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.

2. You’ll get a healthy pet

Animal shelters are brimming with happy, healthy animals just waiting for someone to take them home. Most shelters examine and give vaccinations to animals when they arrive, and many spay or neuter them before being adopted. In addition to medical care, more and more shelters also screen animals for specific temperaments and behaviors to make sure each family finds the right pet for its lifestyle.

3. You’ll save money

Adopting a pet from an animal shelter is much less expensive than buying a pet at a pet store or through other sources. In addition, animals from many shelters are already spayed or neutered and vaccinated, which makes the shelter’s fee a real bargain.

4. You’ll feel better

Pets have a way of putting a smile on your face and a spring in your step. Not only do animals give you unconditional love, but also they have been shown to be psychologically, emotionally, and physically beneficial. Knowing that you helped save another life is a very rewarding feeling.

WooFStoria Tip for Day

When a new dog comes into any new surroundings, they are bound to be scared, stressed and a little unease.  The best way to help a dog relax and get used to its surrounding is to give the dog lots of love and affection and teach your dog to relax with some soothing music.  Soothing music can go a long way in helping your dog to learn to relax and get used to their surroundings.
