Arrival Story:
My 14 year old lab passed away on may 3rd 2010. We grew up together and he was my best friend. I said I didn't want another puppy. In September I was visiting a friend who's Greater Swiss Mountain Dog had just had a litter of puppies. She asked if I wanted to see them and I immediatly fell in LOVE with a little white one. He was the only white one, the rest looked like the mother. She told me that he had a genetic defect causing him to have too much white and that he would never be recognized by the AKC. She also told me they weren't sure what they were going to do with him yet. Two months later he was comming home with me

Hemi's parents we champion show dogs that were imported from Europe. they had a litter of perfect puppies and one Hemi! Hemi was born with "excessive white" a breed trait that is not acceptable to breeders, and is not accepted by the AKC. Normaly puppys born with so much white will be culled from the litter because they are seen as a genetic defect. He also has what's called a "wall eye" or one blue eye. He has perfect vision, and is 100% healthy. The breeder knew that we would give Hemi an amazing home, and we didn't care that he couldnt be registered, or ever enter a show ring.
