Deebo wasn’t the first animal whom Setzer saved from euthanasia.
In 2014, Setzer rescued another pit bull mix named Snoop, who is now the Setzers’ family dog.
“His owner brought him when he was a couple months old,” Carly Setzer, Eric Setzer’s daughter, told The Dodo. “We weren’t too sure about the whole situation, but he needed to have his leg amputated, but [the owner] didn’t want to pay for any kind of surgery for him. So he was going to have him euthanized, but my dad decided to have him sign him over instead.”
