Two Peas In A Pod

Hedges had a tough time getting adopted because of his big personality and high energy.

Written by volunteer Samantha Robuccio

Hedges, a Lab/Border collie mix who was rescued from being euthanized at Henderson Animal Shelter, is having a blast with his second chance at life. Thanks to Russell Wyatt, Hedges is now part of a loving family that includes two young daughters and a cat. Russell decided to adopt Hedges because his dog Lady had recently passed away and he missed having a canine companion. Little did he know, in that moment he would be adopting “the best dog he’d ever had.”

It was pretty clear to the family that Hedges was happy to have a home. He acclimated pretty quickly. When asked about the transition, Wyatt said, “There was a little bit of an adjustment,” (to the cat in the family.)  Hedges is “big and clumsy” and sometimes doesn’t realize the cat is under his feet.  Other than that it was really easy to transition Hedges to be part of the family. Just ask Wyatt, “Being impressed doesn’t even explain it. It was incredible. I’ve never adopted a dog that was so easy.”

Knowing where Hedges came from, it is truly a pleasure to hear about his antics. “I’ve never seen a dog his size, curl up in such a tight ball. It blew me away the first time I saw it, like a cat (then a few minutes later) on his back with his long legs sticking up in the air,” said Wyatt.  They’ve also been known to whip out the camera phone to time how fast he can destroy his favorite stuffed toys.

We all knew Hedges as a big, energetic, smart, handful of a dog. His new family would describe him as really friendly, with a great personality, and very photogenic. Wyatt says, “He’s just a big goofball. We’re like two peas in a pod, cause I’m a big goofball, too.”
