Handsome Hansen is STILL looking for his own people, and we just can't figure out why. Hansen is 5 years old and weighs 13 lbs. He came to us after being hit by a car. He healed the best he could but now has an "old man" body. He walks with a limp and always will. Hansen also had heartworm disease. He was treated for them, but the heartworms damaged his heart and left him with a heart murmur. He is ready for his forever home! Hansen is looking for a relaxed household. He isn't able to go for long walks due to his "old man" body and his heart. He still enjoys exploring the yard and playing but needs to be able to take a break when he says so. Hansen will be adopted into a home with no small children.
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.
