Hippo didn't worry about his own bleeding - he just wanted the cheeseburger! 🍔

337 515 意见

The best way for us to make friends with dogs we need to rescue is to offer them a cheeseburger. Offering a smelly warm treat helps us establish that we're there to help, and many times it reduces the levels of stress right away. Today I would like to ask everybody to make a small donation to our Cheeseburger Fund here: www.HopeForPaws.org

JoAnn knew she is heading out to rescue a BIG Pit Bull, so she got him a DOUBLE cheeseburger and it all worked out really well :-)

After receiving a bath and medical care, Hippo continued to his foster home with our friends at L.A. Animal Rescue and he is now ready for his forever home! If you would like to adopt him, please contact them directly: www.LAAR.org

If you can't adopt him, please share his video with your friends... this guy deserves an amazing home!

Thank you so much,


  • The fact that he was overweight and so trustful right from the beginning makes me think that maybe he wasn't abandoned but lost/ran away for some reason 🥺

    • He could have been in a car accident. First thing to do is check for tags, if none, then check for a chip...facebook has lost and found ads in most areas. Nextdoor neighbor apps are good to, if available. Just because a dog is loose does NOT mean it wasn't owned by someone....that one was obviously someone's well fed pet.

    • I'm in agreement with you. I'm glad that they will try and find owners as this dog description won't be difficult. If someone lost their dog or even if its an abandonment. This petite definitely been loved and has no trauma as what we normally see.

    • Hope for Paws already replied, but just so we are all very clear here, being an overweight pet isn't synonymous with having a loving home. In fact, being overweight can often times be a sign of neglect in itself due to lack of attention given to nutrition. Of course there are exceptions to this, and it would be irresponsible of me to say that's ALWAYS the case. However, an overweight puppy isn't always a happy puppy! I understand the sentiment of wishing a dog could be reunited with a loving home, though. It's always nice when dogs can reunite with their people because it means they weren't on the streets due to neglect. Unfortunately, too many dogs are just neglected and abandoned :(

  • It's incredible how cruel we humans can be with dogs... NO it's not cute to breed animals like this! this poor dog is all deformed, has a lot of trouble even moving and breathing and most probably has some sort of mental retardation. Please people stop buying and breeding dogs like this one, show some REAL emphaty!

  • Hippo is absolutely adorable I hope he finds a loving furever home soon, he is such a loving boy he reminded us of our dog 🤦🏻‍♀️ I know you said you tried to find his owner but if he wasn't abandoned I hope he can be reunited with them. This Charity is amazing & I love watching these incredible rescue stories, I don't have much but I donate $10 a month & I encourage others to help out where they can even the smallest act of kindness can make a big difference. I've been doing this for a few years now since I first discovered Hope For Paws on CNfrom, I love receiving the emails telling me about the amazing work they are doing & seeing all the beautiful animals at the end of the video 💛. I live in the UK but I love this organisation so much they do such amazing work. I have also rescued animals throughout my life mainly small animals like Rabbits, Birds, Hedgehogs etc, I get them healthy for release it is such a rewarding thing to do & it teaches our children to be kind & caring towards all living things. Thank you for sharing this with us Eldad & thank you for all the amazing work you & your team have done & continue to do, I'm happy to keep helping you do these incredible rescues & I hope more people donate or help raise money & awareness for all the inspiring things you do 🤞🏻💛

  • Call me skeptical but who is to say Ernesto was not the owner who couldn't afford to have him treated by a vet hence the "emotion". That dog was loved and fed very well...no way he was abandoned.

Its been almost six years since I lost my pretty princess and I have my 4 cats plus my community cats that are part of my life and there is a total of six cats. They are outside cats but are well taken care of. Anyway, I'm going through a major illness and getting better every day. I'm going to adopt a SENIOR DOG, my pretty princess has finally given me permission to open my heart again, not 100% ready but I'm getting closer to it. I"m proud to be a donor of yours. Thank you!!

  • Wish I could get a farm then I could get as many "Hippos" I wanted! I also wished these rescues would allow out of state adoptions. I mean what do they do when a dog is adopted & the ppl relocate make them return the dog? That makes no sense esp. With the way the world is today & how easy it is to send video or connect all over the world! Loved the belly roll at the end his face makes me want to give him TONS of kisses!💜💜💜

  • Everybody does this not touch your heart. I'am a older man and still cry when i see the abuse humans give innocent animals Please donate to Hope For Paws. Doesn't matter how much. I live in Canada and donate to rescue people in my area. I'am poor but at the end of the day i wouldn't forgive myself if i didn't help. They are angels for what they do and God will shine on them. But your donations help them to help more lost souls. And i do not know them just saying this from my heart

  • There was a bully pit walking my neighborhood. We became homies in mere minutes, less than 10! Full on belly rubs, came backed when i beckoned him, took him home and he stayed on my dog's tie out for hours. I was hoping his owner would come down the street calling for him. Hippo 🦛 tree reminds me of the dog. He had a skin condition and he was missing lower two front teeth but his teeth were white and pink gums which meant he probably wasn't 3yrs yet. I wanted to keep him, but my yard's not fenced

    • And pitbulls are banned in my area. My dog is a spayed brat, but my house is too small to keep and conceal an obvious pitbull-x dog. He was un-neutered and I think he was roaming for females. But my neighborhood is dangerous and young people are cruel for no reason. They would have passed him around, bred him, sold him, fought him, tried to make him mean, cuz he was just a goofy doofy giant butter ball. I fell in 💕 with him hard and i had him less than 19 hours. I found this that morning after coming home from work. I delivered him to the humane society before returning to work that evening. And I cried for Damn near two days. I can cry now. That was my mom's birthday and I was heart broken. The humane society attendant wasn't convinced that he WASNT my dog because I was so emotional and he was so responsive to my emotions. But we'd only know each other for about 8-10 hours. I surrendered him cuz I used to work at that shelter and that was the safest alternative since I couldn't keep him. And i left a donation to show how grateful I was. So, i dunno if this guy was that dog's owner. But I doubt it. Cuz I know what I go through thinking about that stray that I love as if I'd raised him myself and had only known him a few hours
