Hero, Dolly’s Dream Dog #27, was adopted by Belinda and her family in February of 2017. Originally a transfer from Broward County Animal Care and Adoptions in November of 2016, Hero arrived at the HSBC with a terrible skin condition that left him intensely uncomfortable itching and a patchy coat.
His medical notes diagnosed “patchy full-body alopecia.” He was put on medication and given weekly medicated baths, and after weeks of treatment and TLC, Hero started to look like the supermodel we knew he could be!
After a long four-month road, Hero hit the jackpot when his new family adopted him. They tell us that Hero is “the happiest baby hippo in all the land. He’s traveled with us from the southernmost point in the U.S. to Disney… within this year he’s transformed into the biggest, most lovable pooch ever. His two besties are chihuahuas that love him… he’s the best dog and we’re so fortunate to be his fur-ever family.”
