When Hank was found in the woods by a kind Samaritan, he was only 8 months old, yet the man who discovered him said he didn’t look like a puppy at all. The lonesome dog, rather than rushing about the forest with young joy, remained absolutely still on an abandoned dog bed, seeming to be undisturbed by the approach of the stranger.
His expression communicated an urgent need for assistance when he was surrounded by his old toys and a bag of dog food that was sealed and he was unable to open it.
The kind-hearted person who found Hank phoned the animal shelter in their area, and the shelter quickly sent rescue workers to the location. Hank was saved. Because he was in survival mode, they were concerned that he may grow hostile during the rescue operation; nonetheless, they were pleasantly pleased to discover that he had a different disposition than they had anticipated.
Rosa Fond, the founder of Humans and Animals United, said in an interview with The Dodo that “He was nothing but affection from the minute they acquired him.” Everyone agrees that he is the nicest dog they’ve ever met.
After successfully rescuing Hank, the employees at the shelter took him to the veterinarian, where it was discovered that he had been suffering from a fractured leg. It took more than two weeks for Hank to be rescued after sustaining this injury, as stated by the medical professionals.
They said that this was the reason why he never got out of bed in the woods. It was just too agonizing to bear.
Because Hank’s injuries needed significant surgery, the shelter asked Humans and Animals United for assistance in order to cover the costs of the procedure.
Instantaneously, Fond gave their assent to take care of him and provide the urgently required medical attention for him under their supervision.
She brought the little dog to a veterinarian clinic in the area, and he will remain there for the foreseeable future. In the near future, Hank will have an operation that will forever alter his life; however, he must first put on some weight. In the meanwhile, he is enjoying the daily affection and attention that he receives from the workers at the veterinary clinic very much.
Since Humans and Animals United posted about Hank on their Facebook page, there has been a flood of requests to adopt him, but Fond claims that no one has been chosen to take him in just yet.
According to Fond, “He’s going to have a little bit of a journey to go through before he’s finally adopted in its entirety.” “But now he’s out of harm’s way, and there’s no way he’ll ever be wounded again.”
