At the Long Beach Animal Care Services, a two-year-old Catahoula/American bull dog mix has won the hearts of the staff and volunteers. Hemingway loves playing with toys and rolling around in the grass, except today, his tomorrows are unknown – he has been placed on the “at-risk” list.
According to the shelter, Hemingway is deaf, but as you will see in his video, that doesn’t seem to be a problem at all.

When found as a stray, Hemingway had a heavy chain around his neck which had to be removed by a veterinarian. Sadly, the staff also found “possible tread marks” on his head; did some evil person try to run this puppy over with a vehicle?
Veterinarian notes indicate Hemingway has possible entropian affecting his eyes, where his eyelashes turn inward and scratch his corneal surfaces) There is corrective surgery available for the condition.
“It will take a special person or family to step up for Hemingway, since he might require some extra TLC. But he was put on the at-risk list today, and his friends are all a little worried. Please share this fun dude to a fun family!
