New Vet Office Employee is a Special Needs Bulldog

When he was just a puppy, Hank’s family purchased him from a breeder. Soon after, his family realized something was wrong with him because he was unable to control his bladder or bowels. They tried giving him back to the breeder, only to be turned away and given a second puppy instead. The family, unsure of what to do, approached a local veterinarian for help. After x-rays and an exam, Dr. Jamie Laity from the Harbor Point Animal Hospital figured out Hanks’ problem: he has spina bifida. This means his spine did not develop properly and he would likely have issues for the rest of his life.

So, the family decided to surrender him to Dr. Laity, who eventually decided to adopt him. Rather than see him euthanized or in a home that cannot properly care for him, Hank joined her family instead. Because he needs such specialized care and round the clock attention, Hank joins Dr. Laity at work each day. He wears a belly band and diaper at all times and requires frequent baths because of it. So far, Hank doesn’t seem to mind the diaper or the baths.

Best of all, Hank has a special bed in the Harbor Point Animal Hospital facility and has become quite the local celebrity as their newest “employee.” Everyone is thrilled to meet little Hank and play with him when they visit the office. Hank hangs out with the receptionist, greets clients, and takes plenty of naps, too. When it’s time to head home, Hank has three dog siblings: a boxer and two Labradors whom he loves dearly. Despite his condition, Hank is an active, playful, loving dog who has special needs but also has quite the zest for life. Dr. Laity says he went from an unwanted and sick puppy to lighting up the lives of everyone he meets.
