Hemi Apply to adopt me

Or, make a donation toward my care:

Physical Description: Hemi is an adorable little guy, tan with tiny white socks, a small patch of white on his chest, and hints of black throughout his coat. Hemi has a burn on the top of his head, which has healed dramatically since coming into foster care. There is some scar tissue and some of the fur may not grow back but, so far, it is looking great!

Personality: This small fry packs so much love, action, and fun into his tiny little puppy body! Following an accident in which he was burned in or near the engine of a car, Hemi spent a couple of weeks recovering with a wonderful vet, getting the care and treatment necessary to begin the healing process for his burns. Hemi's head looks amazing and continues to improve daily. This little guy has no idea that he was ever injured and shows no signs of fear or reservation because of it -- he lives in and for the moment, just as a puppy should. He is spunky and loves to play with dogs and humans alike. He is respectful to his older foster brothers, and is taking cues and learning from a slightly older puppy foster sister that he is currently living with.

Hemi sleeps through the night in his crate, does not ever object to it, and is doing great with potty training. In fact, he has not soiled his crate one time since coming into foster care! He will wake you up during the night if he needs to go out, but otherwise sleeps peacefully until morning comes.

Hemi really loves to eat, which will make training a fun activity. He will do best and should be placed in a home with another dog who wants a buddy to sleep with and a playmate to pal around with.

History: After his injury, Hemi was rescued and brought into our foster program by a Good Samaritan, who advocated for him throughout his burn treatment.
