Hope Gorove –  We believe that she has two predominant breeds, although she is a mutt.  Rhodesian Ridgeback (she does not bark, when she was younger she could LEAP like a Rhodesian and RUN very fast) and American Staffordshire – her body shape just looks like one.

How did you obtain your pet?

We waited until my daughter was 13 years old, and arrived home from middle school in the early afternoon, before getting a dog.  We did not want to leave her all day.  We got her from a rescue.

How old is your pet?

The youngest age she could be would be 12.5 years (she was approximately 1 yo when we got her). We think she is at least 13.

What is your pet’s favorite pastime?

Laying on her human family members.

What is your pet’s favorite toy?

Stuffed dragon.

What is your favorite thing about your pet?

Her sweet personality and smile.

If your pet had a superpower, what would it be?

She already has a superpower!  She can read a human’s emotions from miles away, and when that human is in need, she knows to be at their side immediately.

Why does your pet love Caring Hands Animal Hospital?

The staff’s love and expertise.  All of the employees recognize her by name when we walk in the door.  The vets are all fantastic – she LOVES Dr. Neumann (as does her human Mom).  And Dr. N. saved her life – she was critically ill with inflammatory bowel disease – he literally saved her life.  And was soooo kind to her owners; they are ever grateful.
