Even after being a dedicated dad to Amy, Hector’s future with Amy was threatened. He failed to procure a license for Amy due to the lack of an address, which resulted in police officers visiting him daily with the intention to take her away from him.

Poor Hector resorted to desperate measures to save Amy. He shared his story with the people outside the grocery store and pleaded for their help. Soon, his story reached Piper Wood, the founder of “Hand in Paw”. Piper was moved at his plight and decided to help him secure a future with Amy.
