Once upon a time (August 2012), a young pup named Hemi had an owner who thought he would look better with cropped ears and he attempted to change Hemi’s physical appearance. Apparently, Heroic Hemi liked his ears just the way they were so he escaped and ran until he found help from the Euless Animal Shelter. Unfortunately, he was required to undergo two separate surgeries to repair the ear. Heroic Hemi was given much love from fosters and temporary homes and he grew in size and stature and is a very impressive strong puppy today.
In March, Hemi moved into a new foster home. Hemi and foster brother Bob enjoyed tearing up the yard . . . Bob racing Hemi. Hemi with his big brother-like threats and nips and tackles and Bob thought it was the best fun he had ever had . . . When playtime was over Hemi snuggled up to his other pack members and fell asleep on a single pet bed. At an adoption event in April, he reunited with a former foster parent and you should have seen the love and affection exchanged. Oh – you can – see the picture on the left. At the Walk a Thon, he was able to meet up with a former foster friend and they were both so happy they were licking and kiss each other. Looks like Hemi has a long memory.
Hemi responds well to direction. He has accepted the spacial boundaries that I established for myself and is beginning to understand the boundaries that exist outside the house (whether foster mom is home or not ). He loves to be loved, so is always seeking to please. HOWEVER, Hemi is strong willed as well as physically strong. Hemi is seeking a furever home where the entire family knows how to lead the pup. Hemi will take over if his family does not step up.
Hemi stays in a kennel during the day while his foster mom earns more kibble. Hemi is potty trained, crate trained and willing to sleep beside a bed at night. He always receives his food inside the kennel. Hemi has patience and waits for the “OK” to be offered before he begins eating the kibble. Hemi knows how to 'sit' and 'shake', and loves to go for car rides. Hemi has a loud booming bark when he wants to get your attention but only uses it to warn you when he thinks a stranger is approaching. His hearing is excellent. Hemi is learning to play fetch and walk on a leash.
Hemi is very adaptable, he has done well in a home with a lot of activity and children and in a home with lower activity levels and no children. He is however, not completely self-aware and doesn’t know his own strength, weight or spacial requirements. At this time, it is probably best if children are five or older so that the child can control Hemi’s interaction with them. Hemi does not adjust well to cats in the home. Hemi is a handsome hunka dog and he will steal your heart if you let him. Don’t you want a dog you can wrap your arms around and dance across the floor with?
Hemi is approximately one year old and sixty pounds. He will continue to grow for another six-twelve months. He is neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations. We think he is an American Staffordshire/Bull Mastiff Mix.
