FurreverHomes Rescue rarely, if ever, say no when asked to help an animal in need. Hannah was rescued and placed in the home of Steve Williams, the President of FurreverHomes. Anyone could look at Hannah and see that something was seriously wrong. When rescued, Hannah was seven weeks old and only weighed 1 pound, 14 ounces. She could barely use her legs Most pit bull puppies weigh between 10 and 15 pounds at that age and are full of energy.
Hannah was taken to see Dr. Julianna Taylor at Canal Road Animal Hospital in Orange Beach, Ala. the next morning. Dr. Taylor determined that Hannah was born without knee caps and has hypothyroidism. She also most likely has congenital dwarfism. Dr. Taylor is waiting on the results of several tests, but believes that Hannah's conditions can be treated successfully. Hannah has been placed on thyroid medication and supplements and she has to be administered fluids each morning. The medications seem to be helping because Hannah has gained 15 ounces in two weeks.
Everyone at FurreverHomes Rescue love Hannah and only want what is best for her. Hannah will continue to see Dr. Taylor for treatment and she will be fostered by Steve until she is ready for adoption. Elizabeth Clark, a vet tech and the vice president of FurreverHomes Rescue, will work closely with Steve to care for Hannah's medical needs.
