“He’ll never, ever be hurt again” ❤️️
Hank was only 8 months old when he was discovered in the woods by a kind stranger, but he didn’t look like a puppy at all. Instead of running around the forest, the lonely dog sat perfectly still on a discarded dog bed, seemingly unfazed by the stranger approaching him.
His face conveyed a desperate need for help, surrounded by his old toys and a sealed bag of dog food that he couldn’t open.
The Good Samaritan contacted their local animal shelter, which immediately dispatched staff members to the scene to rescue Hank. They were worried that because he was in survival mode, he would become aggressive during the rescue, but they were pleasantly surprised to find that he had a different demeanor.
“From the moment they got him, he was nothing but love,” Rosa Fond, founder of Humans and Animals United, told us. “Everyone says he’s the cutest dog.”
After rescuing him, shelter workers took Hank to the vet, where they discovered he had a broken leg. Doctors believe Hank sustained this injury more than two weeks before being rescued.
They claimed he never moved from his bed in the woods because of this. It was just too painful.
Hank’s injury necessitated extensive surgery, so the shelter turned to Humans and Animals United for assistance.
Fond agreed immediately to take him into their care and provide him with the medical attention he required.
She took the puppy to a nearby veterinary hospital, where he is currently being treated. Hank’s life-changing surgery is coming up soon, but he needs to gain some weight first. Meanwhile, he enjoys the daily love and cuddles from the veterinary staff.
Hank has received numerous adoption requests since Humans and Animals United posted about him on their Facebook page, but Fond says no one has been chosen yet.
“He’s going to have to go through a little bit of a journey before he’s fully adoptable,” Fond said. “But he’s safe now, and he won’t be hurt again.”
