In Portland, Oregon, a woman was driving down the highway when she saw an object being thrown over a crosswalk.
At first it looked like a bag, but he soon realized it was a pit bull. He immediately approached and called his daughter, April Iles
April works at a veterinary clinic, so Mom rushed the dog there.
The poor dog had a broken bone and a ruptured ligament, and needed extensive surgery to correct it. The Eells family started raising money, and they succeeded.
The family made a special connection with the dog, who was named Hank, and decided to adopt him.
He’s Hank symbolizes the daughter of April Ils, who attempted suicide last year by jumping off a crosswalk but fortunately survived.
«So we can not just give it up,» April told KPTV. «It simply came to our notice then.
And my own daughter had surgery again today, she had surgery last week, so I just feel like they’s just for some reason… there’s this parallel, she came into our lives for a reason, my mom just said we don’t give up : on him. «
