Adopt Hei Hei
Boy • 8 years old • Gemini • Black and Brown • 23kg • Mixed Breed
HeiHei came to PACK in 2021. When he was rescued his right paw bone was exposed, but despite this pain he let PACK rescue him. During treatment he lost his right paw. Initially there was concern that this would be uncomfortable for him, but he has quickly adapted and learned to walk on three legs! He can even climb stairs and uneven surfaces now. HeiHei is comfortable with humans; he adapts quickly to strangers and learns new commands easily.
HeiHei is playful and affectionate with a calm temperament. With his big feet and smiling face he can make anyone feel better. HeiHei is very observant of human emotions, and when your heart is heavy, he will be right by your side to listen. HeiHei loves to be pet and turns into a big teddy bear when he gets attention. He is affectionate towards everyone and can lift anyone’s spirits with his warmth. At the same time, HeiHei is also quite independent, and can sometimes get lost in his own world, but you only have to walk a little farther than him and he will run to catch up to you.
When HeiHei wants to eat or go outside he can get very excited and energetic, but when there is nothing to do he will obediently lie down and accompany you quietly.
HeiHei likes to be around people and doesn’t need to spend much time with children and strangers before becoming comfortable with them.
HeiHei can be independent and sometimes a bit stubborn, but in the end he will follow you obediently.
HeiHei handles unfamiliar environments very well. When he is nervous, he pees. As he adjusts to new environments this behavior dissipates.
Foster Family Says
When Hei Hei first arrived, there were many problems, from frightening other dogs, urinating, biting things out to eat,It annoys us, but he is actually a big boy with a slender heart, just because he is not used to it and unfamiliar, but he can only express his emotions in those ways. In fact, it only took a week or so, and the obvious problems were improved, and the more times I communicated with him, the faster he improved.

Hei Hei is a cheerful young man who is missing his right front foot. No other health conditions other than that
