Hansen is an absolute joy! He is playful, happy, gentle and kind. He has an old soul and is wise beyond his years. Hansen has stories for days and just loves life. He will acclimate wonderfully to a new home and cannot wait to have one. Hansen is approximately 5 years old and weighs 13 lbs. He has been fully vetted. He is kennel trained and overall a quiet boy. Hansen is not able to transport out of Texas and prefers to stay in the warmer climate due to his achy bones. Though Hansen is only 5 years old, he has the body of a 70-year-old man due to being hit by a car and badly injured. He had broken and fractured bones EVERYWHERE. Unfortunately, they were bones that could not be casted, so he was treated with crate rest and time for his broken tail bone, broken tail, fractured ribs, fractured pelvis, broken toes, broken teeth, broken toenails. Once all his bones healed, he was neutered and had a dental. After all of that, this poor little guy had to undergo heartworm treatment!
Fortunately, Hansen absolutely loves life. We almost lost him during his heartworm treatment, but his will to live was too strong and he lived to see another day. Hansen's little body isn't and will never be perfect. He walks with a limp and has limited movement in his tail. He grunts when you pick him up and coughs occasionally, but his spirit has never wavered. In spite of all he's endured, Hansen is the sweetest dog on the planet. He loves to be loved on. Cuddles and belly rubs are all he wants from life. Well, he also wants all the toys! He gets a wild hair here and there and has zoomies for his toys. Hansen has been through hell and back, and he deserves the best life can give him. He deserves a loving family who will protect him, cherish him for the hardships he has endured, respect him for his long journey back to health, and adore him every day for the rest of his years.
