Hemi was found lying down exhausted by the side of the road in January 2021. He had a string cinched around his neck so tight that he could hardly breathe. His front right leg had also healed crooked from at least 2 breaks. After all that, he is still trusting and longing for love.
He is good with people and settles down well once he is out of his run and with someone. He is easy to handle, not sensitive to grooming, nail trims, etc. He is affectionate and comes when you call him. Just a great tough little dog.
Hemi is on a joint supplement for the leg that was fractured. His gait is a little awkward but he has not trouble walking. Leisurely walks would be the best exercise for him to minimize stress. He loves the water so swimming would be a great way to burn energy.
Hemi does not currently get along with most dogs. We are working on finding him a walking buddy to help him learn to trust a pack because he is clearly lonely.
We try our best to give Hemi a good life but the rescue will never truly be home for him. We hope to see him transform into the dog he was always meant to be once he finally finds his family.
