Hula is not yet ready for adoption. We are still evaluating her personality and addressing her medical needs. An email notification will be sent when she becomes ready for adoption. If you wish to receive the notification, please sign up for our mailing list at the top of the front page of our website. Adoption fees are set at the time a dog goes available and applications can only be submitted at that time. Please follow our website and social media pages for updates on Hula!
When Hula came to us, she was a scrawny little thing-- all skin and bones and exhausted from fighting parvo, giardia and coccidia, but she had bright eyes and a strong spirit. We knew that with some TLC, she would make it! In the past few weeks, Hula has gained weight and strength, and she has made enormous progress in her journey to recovery from parvovirus!
Hula loves people and other dogs. Her favorite thing to do is curl up with a human and snuggle. She loves to play chase, racetrack and keep-away with other dogs, and she is quick to wrestle toys away from her foster sisters! Hula is a vocal Frenchie... she’s an incredibly vigilant watch dog and she will bark and howl when anyone comes in or if there is any commotion. Her bark is soft and sweet and her howl will melt your heart. She also likes to bark at her own reflection in the mirror!
Hula doesn’t really like being left alone. She will cry, but she does settle down and will find a toy to chew on or take a nap. That doesn’t last long though, because once she’s decided she’s had enough alone time, she’ll start crying again and trying to escape her pen. She really does enjoy being around people and knowing what’s going on...she wants to be a part of everything!
Hula is a complete joy to be around. She is smart-- she knows her name, she knows to run for her pee pad when she has to go, and she knows what NO means. She’s definitely learning quickly! She eats her food and really looks forward to her favorite snacks-- a carrot or a Kong toy filled with peanut butter and morsels of kibble! She is a wonderful, sweet souled puppy with tons of love and affection to give!
Today (4/18/2020) we took in 11-week-old, 5-pound little girl, Hula. Hula is battling the parvovirus and desperately needed our help. The canine parvovirus (CPV) infection is a highly contagious viral illness that affects dogs. The virus manifests itself in two different forms. More common is the intestinal form of parvo in dogs, which is characterized by vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss and lack of appetite (anorexia). Less commonly seen is the cardiac form, which attacks the heart muscles of fetuses and very young puppies.
Hula had been sick for about 5 days. We knew that we had to act quickly to help her. The second she came into our care she went directly to the emergency hospital. Right now, her blood pressure is normal. Her white blood cell count is low, so she is receiving antibiotics to protect her from secondary infections. She was able to eat a little bit of baby food. Her electrolytes are off but that is to be expected. She is dehydrated; however, the vets are working on getting her appropriately hydrated. The next 24 hours of care are critical for her. For now, she is stable and is heading in the right direction.
We greatly appreciate any and all donations….$3000 will help us provide Hula with some basic essentials, such as food, bowls, and a harness, as well as help cover some of her vet bills.
