The Chronicles of Hannah... the Wonderpup - Part 1

Below is the video and the post I saw of this cute, little honey colored pup that completely captured my heart.  I'm not sure how I was even drawn to the video posted on Facebook or to the person that posted it.  The person is Mona Chaichi.  She works tirelessly (well, maybe she is actually always tired as she works, is a student and rescues as many as she can on her own).
I use a Facebook page for my dog, Boomer Beau Dingo, to network, share and post about stray animals, rescue organizations and animal stories in the news and around the web.

I began networking for some of Mona's rescues and donated to her efforts.  That video of that little dog kept tugging at my heart.  I knew Mona was trying to catch her and had been for months along with Hannah's partner, another little GSD pup.  They were both living in a truck center for about a year I found out later.  

That little pup, who Mona named Hannah, has made it into our home and has snuggled into our hearts.  I can't believe I am actually fostering her!  My former rescue life has come full circle to me.  I'm unable to be out there as I used to actually doing the physical work of rescuing so fostering Hannah satisfies that yearning... for now!  

Please read about Hannah and go to Mona's Facebook page from the link above.  If you live in Orange County or the Los Angeles area, please consider donating, fostering or adopting any of the great pups she has needing a caring, safe, loving home.  

Hopeless In The Blazing Sun to Becoming The Sunshine Herself!

Hannah's first video

Southern California/Local Adoption Only 
Can you provide a loving forever home for this sweet girl? Her name is Hannah and she has finally been rescued after having lived for months on end in the blazing sun in a truck lot, roaming in between trucks, and hiding in the field for shelter. 

We first noticed Hannah about 5 months ago in this desolate area in a truck lot. In our attempts to rescue one dog that day, we spotted her in an enclosed area with fencing all around. When we drove close the first thing we noticed was that her head seemed twice the size of her body -- that's because of how severely underweight she had been on our first sighting. When we drove a little closer, she was already long gone and out of sight. 

We've gone back to the area for several other rescues and hadn't seen her until two weeks ago.  We went back a few times including 4th of July but we failed at catching her. Good Samaritans who work on the lot had been feeding her for awhile so she had put on a good amount of weight but still underweight. With the heat approaching the high 90s we were scared for her, knowing how easily she was dehydrated and could easily overheat and suffer a heatstroke so we needed to see her that day. Thankfully we spotted her on July 9th desperately laying on the concrete in the hot sun exhausted and dehydrated. 

What seemed like an eternity to bring her to safety... we finally had our sweet girl. What we know about Hannah is that she is approximately 18 months and weights 37.01 lbs and is an absolute sweetheart who hasn't seen real love and affection. Please help in providing Hannah a loving forever home where she can feel safe and loved. She will be completely up to date with all needed medical on Tuesday, including vaccines, spay procedure, dental polishing, fecal test, heartworm test, and of course microchipped.
