Terminator Dog: he has come from the future to melt our heartsS

You helped Voldermort Cat find a good home — now it's Terminator Dog's turn. Hachi, the Chow Chow (mix) was severely burned, leaving him looking like a Terminator. Some folks are calling these marks "unsightly," but we beg to differ.

Terminator Dog: he has come from the future to melt our heartsS

According to Pet Finder here is Hachi's tragic back story:

County fire fighters brought Hachi into Affordable Animal Hospital in Torrance with third-degree burns covering over 60 to 70 percent of his body. He was nothing but a sweetheart from the time he was carried in - black and charred with the pads of his feet literally falling off.

Luckily, he responded well to treatment and luckily for someone else, he is ever so sweet. He will make a certain someone or family a very special companion. He is loyal and a totally devoted animal.

Much of the burn areas covering his face and body will never grow hair back, and there is not much left of his ears either... but we are looking for someone who can overlook what many may find unsightly on the outside to see what a jewel he is on the inside and be reminded of all those that are good in the world:

Fire fighters willing to risk their own lives for that of another and especially that of "just a dog."
The vets, technicians, groomers and staff at Affordable Animal Hospital that helped him along in his recovery.
The county shelter for footing the bill of this special dog's lengthy road back to health.

Hachi is ready and waiting for a home as special as he is.

What a heartbreaking survival story. Surely Hachi's spirit and looks should inspire a lot of io9ers to adopt this adorable little guy. If we were in El Segundo, CA, he could come live with us.
