Get monthly updates about dogs like Hanni and follow their journey from suffering to a forever-loving home.

Background: Hanni was one of 16 dogs rescued from a hoarding situation last summer. The elderly owner fell ill and was hospitalized, leaving the dogs neglected and causing concerns among neighbors. A shelter volunteer stepped in, ultimately rescuing all the dogs.

Current Living: Since September 2023, Hanni has been residing in an apartment foster home with another foster dog.

Personality: Hanni is smart, affectionate, charming, bright, and curious, with medium energy levels.

Behaviors: Hanni enjoys going for walks and spending time outdoors. While sometimes she can be stubborn about her preferred route and may get excited by birds, cats, or dogs, she is generally well-behaved on a leash. Although not a fan of baths, Hanni tolerates them. She tends to experience motion sickness during car rides, especially on longer journeys. Hanni prefers looking out the window and helps if held instead of using a car seat. She does her potty mostly outside, but if needed, she uses indoor pee pads as well.

Socialization: Hanni is very friendly towards other dogs and often initiates play. She tends to chase cats or birds when encountered outside. She is gentle and friendly with people she meets and not shy around strangers. Hanni is generally indifferent to children.

Health: At the time of rescue, Hanni tested positive for anaplasma. After treatment, she is now healthy and ready for her forever family. Initially, she developed mild itchy skin reactions after consuming beef and fish but has since avoided these foods with no further issues. Hanni is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and receives monthly parasite preventatives.

Ideal Home: Hanni is a very loving and sweet dog. She would thrive best in a home with another friendly fur sibling and with someone who works from home, is retired, or has ample time to spend with their furry companions.
