NIAGARA COUNTY, N.Y. — An officer who rescued an abused puppy from a backyard will be adopting it.
“It’s heartbreaking to think that Hemi is just a baby and this terrible treatment is all he knows, but we assure you that his life will be better from here on out,” the Niagara County SPCA said in a release.
Hemi’s back leg was swollen and bruised to the point where an officer had to carry him. The other dog could not put pressure on its leg.
The animal shelter started a crowd-source funding account to help pay for Hemi’s medical costs. He is expected to make a full recovery.
