He was abandoned with nothing but a closed bag of food, some toys, a bed, and a broken leg for about two weeks.
A family once existed for Hank. However, they fled and left him in the woods.
They abandoned him there with a broken leg, his bed, some used toys, and an unopened bag of food that he was unable to open.
He was discovered in the woods, sitting still on his dog bed, by a kind stranger who then called the nearby animal shelter.
Only a puppy, who is only 8 months old, has experienced so much. Once he realized he was being taken to the veterinary hospital, his tail began to wag. Why anyone would abandon him with a broken leg is beyond our comprehension. left him in the woods with his bed, toys, and food. Humans and Animals United posted on their Facebook page, “Whoever you are, please know that Hank is now safe and will never ever be hurt again.
Hank’s rescuers were concerned that, because he was in survival mode, he might be hostile, but instead he was a big sweetheart.
“He was nothing but love from the moment they got him,” Rosa Fond, founder of Humans and Animals United, told The Dodo. “Everybody says that he’s the sweetest dog.”
Hank was taken to the veterinarian right away, where it was discovered that he had a broken leg that had been bothering him for more than two weeks.
He didn’t get out of his dog bed because of this.
He couldn’t do it because it hurt too much. Hank required extensive surgery. Facebook posts claimed that he was close to being put to death.
However, Humans and Animals United intervened to guarantee that Hank received all the life-saving care he required.
Hank needed to put on weight before his surgery, which was scheduled.
He was extremely skinny when he was discovered, but no one knew for how long he had gone without food. However, it’s likely that he was left in the woods for two weeks before being discovered.
The staff at the veterinary hospital made sure to shower him with affection and care during this time. Online discussion about Hank’s story was very active.
Donations for Hank’s operation and care began to pour in. People simply couldn’t comprehend how someone could be so cruel to such a sweet dog.
Thanks to everyone who contributed and wished Hank well, his first surgery was a success.
He’ll need some time to heal, it’s anticipated.
According to Humans and Animals United, he is still extremely thin to the point where his bones are clearly visible.
He is therefore being fed small meals all day long to gain weight. He is currently in a temporary foster home, but will soon transfer to another foster home that focuses on situations like Hank’s.
He’ll have the best chance of gaining weight and recovering from surgery if he does it that way. When Hank is fit enough, he will be given up for adoption.
Many people have expressed interest in adopting Hank, but no official forever home has been found.
I’m grateful for everyone who helped care for him, including the good Samaritan who found him. I have no doubt that he will enjoy a wonderful life moving forward,” the rescuer wrote.
