Hawkeye’s Luck Changes at HUA!

Uncategorized 11 Comments

Poor Hawkeye has had a tough life.  This sweet young Pomeranian fellow was born in a puppy mill in Iowa.  He was released by the breeder to a rescue group in Iowa, which should have been the start of a wonderful life.  Unfortunately for Hawkeye he had an awful experience.  He was adopted to a family who had a large dog.  The large dog attacked him, severely injuring his leg.  The family then took him to a humane society where his leg was bandaged but nothing else was done.  The leg became extremely infected.  HUA was contacted to take him and told that his leg was so bad that it would need to be amputated.  When Hawkeye arrived in our care our vet was shocked at what he found under the bandage.  It was awful, but with a new laser therapy and IV antibiotics the vet refused to give up, knowing that with proper care the leg will heal.  Hawkeye’s wound was cleaned, he was given pain medication and was taken daily for a week for laser treatments at Backlund Animal Hospital in Omaha where they have state of the art equipment and cutting edge treatment options.  Hawkeye should be as good as new within a few more weeks.  He is in GREAT spirits.  He loves all the care and attention that is lavished on him.  He is such a sweet, adorable, fun little fellow who in spite of all of his trauma still adores people and other dogs.  We can’t wait to say that he is completely healed and ready to find a wonderful new home where he will be treated like a little prince, never to suffer again.  If you are interested in adopting Hawkeye please write to jenny@hua.org.  If you would like to donate for his care (bills are currently at about $1,500) please click here and write “for Hawkeye” in the comments.  If you would like to leave him a special message here or on the donation form we will be happy to deliver it to him and give him a kiss from you!

    Hawkeye’s leg is improving every day. He is now walking and running around on that leg. He wears a baggie on the sore leg to keep it clean while outside.

    All Hawkeye needs is a loving, forever home where he can show off his adorable personality.

    I’m interested in giving him a home if he was in California. There is a wonderful dog park nearby for little dogs he can run around and play.

    Hi, I am extremely and passionately interested in adopting Hawkeye!! We have been looking at poms for a while and I absolutely adore Hawkeye’s story!! I cried when I read about him and feel he deserves a loving and caring family to take care of him. I’m able to keep him indoors by the way, and look forward to hearing from you soon! Blessings for not giving up on him! As I was reading his story, I wanted to adopt him when I read his leg was going to be amputated and wanted to love him whether his leg was amputated or not. Hopefully we can incorporate Hawkeye into our family, but if this is not the family for him, I pray he finds his family soon!! again, Blessings!!

    I didn’t have the heart to look at this yet, but I am glad I did. I am devastated by what happened to poor Hawkeye still to this very day. I can’t express what gratitude I have for HUA and how amazing they are. I am just blown away by what they do every day for all animals. I am so glad that Hawkeye is doing so well… Please send him my love, kisses and hugs and tell him how sorry I am that I couldn’t do more for him. He is definately a special dog, and one that I will never forget. He is always in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving him the chance he so deserved. I will never ever be able to express to you how I feel.
