[Background] rescued from animal control [Size] 7 kilograms [Character]Hachi didn't have the best start to life with his original owners. He was severely "disciplined" which caused him to resort to his last ditch effort to keep himself safe and has bitten his former owners, though not seriously. He was no longer wanted and found himself at animal control. The staff there saw his real character hiding under his fears and asked us to take him to give him a chance. Hachi is friendly and cheerful and loves to be scratched and handled on his terms. He hasn't had any incidents while with us at HEART for the past 8 months and would need a family that understands his needs and care.
