We are there for our dogs in sickness and in health. We would never leave them at their worst, nor would they ever leave us.
It saddens me to see that some dog owners think otherwise, and that they abandon their furry friends who have health issues.
Guppy Hanson was abandoned by both her birth mom and her owners because she had a deformed leg and low chances of survival.
Let’s follow her journey as she finds loving humans who accepted her as she was and gave her a forever home.
Guppy Hanson, a Shih Tzu and Beagle mix, was born in Wetumpka, Alabama, on April 27th in 2022. She was one of four puppies, but her mom rejected her because she had a leg deformity.
She was the size of a granola bar, weighing in at 4 ounces. Thinking that she didn’t have any chance to survive, her owners left her at Bryson Veterinary Clinic
Becky Yourman, one of the staff members, was the first to take the puppy to her home. As soon as her daughter, Jess Lane, saw the tiny pooch, she fell in love with her.
She named her Guppy Hanson… Guppy, because she was small like a little fish, and Hanson, because of the character, Hanson, in Scary Movie 2.
The vets recognized Guppy Hanson’s fighting spirit, and they believed that she would survive. They made a plan and the staff members decided to nurse her in shifts at home.
