Shelter Vets Are Investigating This Rescue Dog For Attacking His Best Friend

Talk about a bum rap! If you’ve ever been accused of doing something you didn’t do, and in fact were only trying to help, then you’ll be able to relate to the plight of this poor, misunderstood pup.

Hank, a 4-year-old Chocolate Lab/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix, and his bestie, Fuzzy Purple Hippo, were housed until just recently at the Fox Valley Humane Association in Appleton, Wisconsin. There they waited, playing and keeping each other company until someone came along who felt that special something and bring them into the family fold.

Hank and his purple hippo are a bonded pair, so if you aren't ready for a 4 year old Chocolate Lab to come home when you adopt your fuzzy Hippopotamus…well, sorry, we can't approve your application. The hippo won't let us get an age on her, but we don't think she's quite as old as Hank..They've been together a long time though. She IS spayed and current on vaccinations, but does seem a bit lethargic. Hank is most definitely not. They do say that opposites attract…. #fvha #foxvalleyhumaneassociation #adoptme #adoptdontshop #labsofinstagram #rescuedog #chocolatelab #shelterdog #fuzzypurplehippo

But the best friends landed in some hot water recently after an after-hours escape attempt went horribly awry. Poor Hank suddenly found himself the sole suspect in Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s near-beheading.
