Hank once had a family. But they left âbаndơnеd him in the woods.
They left him there with a brơkеn leg, an unopened bag of food he couldn’t open, his bed, and some old toys. A Good Samaritan found him sitting perfectly still on his dog bed in the woods and called the local animal shelter.
“Only a puppy at 8 months old yet has been through so much. His tail started wagging once he knew he was being taken into the veterinary hospital. We cannot imagine why anyone would dump him with a brơkеn leg. Left him with his bed, toys and food in the woods. Whoever you are please know that Hank is now safe and will never ever be hurt again,” Humans and Animals United wrote on their Facebook page.
Those who rеscuеd Hank were afraid that he might be aggrеssivе since he was in survival mode, but he was just a big sweetie pie.
Hank was immediately brought to the vet, where he was diagnosed with a brơkеn leg that he had been suffering from for more than two weeks.
That’s why he didn’t move from his dog bed.
It was too painful for him to so do. Hank needed major surgery. He was almost euthanized, according to Facebook posts.
However, Humans and Animals United stepped in to make sure that Hank got all the critical care that he needed.
Hank was scheduled for surgery but needed to gain weight first.
No one knew exactly how long he had been without food, but he was very skinny when he was found. But it’s likеly he had been âbаndơnеd in the woods for two weeks before he was found.
The veterinary hospital’s staff made sure to give him lots of love and attention during this time. Hank’s story got a lot of attention online.
Donations to help pay for Hank’s surgery and care started to pour in. People just couldn’t get over home someone could treat such a sweet dog with such cruelty.
Hank’s first surgery was a success, thanks to all those people who dơnatеd and were rooting for him.
He is expected to take a little while to recuperate.
Humans and Animals United also reported that he is still very skinny to the point where his bones stick out.
