Hippo is a mini bully rescue from a puppy mill that was in a hurricane 🌀 in New Orleans 4 years ago. My husband and I saw her picture on Mastiffs to
Mutts rescue page (Morgan fostered dogs before from them) As soon as we saw Hippo they knew they had to save her. She was quite the popular pet and had a lot of rescue submissions. MTM wanted to make sure Hippo was in a single story home bc they weren’t sure she would be able to do stairs because her previous life of being crated and used for breeding. Luckily we lived in a single story home and they let us adopt her! She changed our world. She had infections, skin issues, phobias, allergies and wasn’t trained whatsoever. She didn’t know how to walk on a leash let alone stairs.
With a lot of love and patience and medical help from Belvedere Vet hippo has thrived. She is health happy and very active, stairs and all. She loves all people, snuggling on the couch, chasing balls, eating, being on Instagram @bmorehippo and car rides. We recently bought our first house and made sure it was “ Hippo friendly” even though she can do stairs ;-) She is the love of our lives and we can’t imagine life without her. She’s brave, smart, loyal and spunky. She brings joy to all that meet her and we are forever grateful she came into our lives.
