About Hank

Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Hank is fostered near Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas by United Yorkie Rescue, Hank is an 8 yr. old, 8 lb. Yorkie boy who came into United Yorkie Rescue in September 2017. Hank has a serious injury, which was the reason his mamma surrendered him, so he can get the care he needs. Only Hank knows what happened to him. Hank's mamma said he slipped and fell, and she found him holding up his leg. She thought maybe this was a patella issues then over the weekend bruising and swelling settled in. 11/18/17: So much has been going on in Hank's life. We have reached the 8 week mark since Hank's surgery to repair his shattered femur, and removal of stones that entered the bladder due to severe abusive trauma. He still has no use of his leg and is dependent on belly bands due to constant incontinence. We have met with 2 vets and have received information about what is happening with this sweet baby and have come up with a plan for a final fix‰'Û|God willing! In repairing Hanks femur with the plate, Hank has developed a Grade 5 (out 5) lameness with and a patella luxation. We need to give his femur at least 30 more days for bone growth then go in to remove the plate and perform lateral suture of the cruciate ligament (ACL) and patella repair. If necessary repair of any blockage or stricture involving the ureter will also be completed (again). In the meantime, we will see the vet and perform some tests to analyze what is going on with this baby's bladder so if surgery is needed, it will be performed all at once so as not to put this angel through another procedure. This could include a contrast study of the bladder, but if this particular test is necessary, it will also be done prior to his surgical repair to his leg and bladder issues AGAIN! Emotionally, Hank is healing well I think. He no longer cries hysterically because I have left the room and I am out of sight, he whines softly. He is truly the most loving little man. He literally rolls his little body over and pushes his body and head into you so hard because he cannot get close enough! I feel at times he must think I'm causing his pain, when this was all at the hand of a monster and all I just want for him is to be pain free and healed. Please read his full story at his page on UYR website link under 'Texas' and 'Hank', and consider making a donation toward his costly care. Thank you!
