Hedgie had a difficult start in life. His first owners chained him up outside as a puppy and never showed him love. When he was eventually adopted and brought home by his new family, the little guy was terrified of everyone and everything. He just cowered behind the table.

One night, Mason’s dog, Hedgie, wouldn’t stop barking. That’s when Mason decided to bring the dog up to his room for the night. The next morning, when Mason went downstairs, he was surprised by what he saw: Hedgie was a completely different dog! The two of them became inseparable friends who did everything together.
