Hi Gisela, welcome to the forum. I was born in South Africa but few up in Australia and now living in Portugal... a little worldly I guess.

When you refer to fur babies? Do you mean pets?

You may find some of this information useful

Unless you plan to live near an International school, you will probably send your child to a state school. I don´t think it is difficult to join a local school and at 5 he should pick up the language quickly. In Europe dogs and cats need a pet passport to cross borders, in theory.
