2016 Hans Solo

2016 Hans Solo

Hans was rescued by Mei Mei, one of our stray feeders. She found him at a factory, with his tail chopped off and in excruciating pain. She was appalled at the sight and contacted Purely Adoptions about the 2 months old Hans. We immediately took over the case after hearing the inhumane treatment of Hans and took him to Dr Tai of Nam Sang for an examination.



Operation and Recovery

21 Dec 2015: Medical consultation

Dr Tai recommended a tail construction as the wound is exposed and may result in gangrene. The surgery was scheduled on the next day as the risk of gangrene increases by day given the wound.

In preparation for the surgery, we bathed the puppy and put Revolution on him as he has many fleas and lice.

We decided to name him Hans Solo, after a hero in Star Wars. We hope that this little puppy can be a brave and overcome this obstacle and come out stronger than ever before.

Solo now has 2 other sisters to play with him, nap with him and get treats together with him. He also has all the care, love and attention that he once could only yearn but never get.





We are Purely for Adoptions and signing off with a heart full of hope that more angels exist.
