Favorite Walk: Any where!
Arrival Story: Hannah was owned by a law enforcement K-9 handler. He obtained Hannah for breeding purposes only. He began breeding her at a very young age. He sold the pups to make money. Hannah was starved and who knows what else. She was kept confined to the point that all her muscles atrophied. After so much breeding and abuse, she was no longer any good to him . He took her to the local animal control to be euthanized. She gave birth to 3 still born pups at the shelter. Thank goodness word got out and Southern Cross German Shepherd took her in. Hannah was in very bad shape. She was taken to the vet. As soon as she got enough strength she was spayed. When her uterus was removed it was full of cystic nodules. She also had 2 very small nodules removed from her mammary glands. She also tested a very strong heartworn positive and must undergo treatment as soon as she is strong enough. I heard about her through a friend. I wanted to take some much needed supplies to the rescue group that rescued her. That is when I met Hannah. She stole my heart. To have gone though what she has she is still so very sweet with so much love to give. I want to give her a normal life for the rest of her life. Lakota will teach her how to be a dog. She has yet to bark. It is her time now!!
Hi all. First off, I want to thank all of you for your gifts and kind words. You have no idea the help this is for me and my mom. Thank you mostly for your prayers. Well...next week I have to go back for more surgery...grrrrrrrrrr!! They want to get a deeper margin to make sure all of that cancer is gone. Not sure of the date yet. Looking like next Tuesday. I will let ya know. Please continue to keep me in your prayers. After this mom and I are hoping I am done for a while!! I dread it soooooo much!!! Much love to all!
Hi all. Hannah's mom here. I want to say thank you to everyone for your kind words and prayers for Hannah. I will update you again when I know more. I have a preliminary path report. The Melanoma is good. All of that is taken care of. Of the two mammary nodules removed, one of then IS cancer. I just hate this for her. I will have to wait to see if there is a next step or if we will just watch her. The other nodule was a surprise. It appears to be buckshot. She was shot at some point in her horrible life. I hate to even think about it. I will keep you posted on what is next.
Well..tomorrow is the day. I will have my surgery in the morning. I am having to hang out over here again today at the UGA clinic. I am just waiting on mom to come and get me. I am sooooooooooo ready to go home. I can tell mom is so worried about me. I have to admit, I am worried too! Mom said she will know the pathology results from my surgery on Friday. Please..lots of prayers and POTP..Thank you all!!
