Harry was found dumped in the most awful emaciated state in March 2020. When one of our volunteers whet to find him, he was so grateful someone stopped to help him, she opened the car door and he jumped straight in.
Sadly, as he was an adult entire male at the time, we didn’t have a place in foster for him so he went into paid kennels to keep him safe and be prepared for the UK. Harry travelled over to his home in England but unfortunately due to some of his issues his first owner could not cope with him and her disabled dog so he was moved to foster care. He is currently in the Bolton area.
Harry is about 3 years old and looks to be a Labrador cross. Although Harry has a few issues which his new owner would need to be aware of and be in control of, he has so many adoring, amazing qualities too.
This is what his foster mum has to say about him
Harry is a 3 year old, playful, energetic & lovable puppy!! Harry is looking for an adult only home due to his overzealous character
He’s 29kg with still a good 5kg to put on! He is an absolute stunning boy
Harry was a stray, found in March completely emaciated, so as you can imagine with high value foods he bowl guards. So, a dry food diet is what is best for him, and any new potential owner must not leave food out on work tops as he will steal and then guard it. (see photo below of when he was found which explains a lot)
Harry is essentially a HUGE puppy, and needs a lot of basic training to continue. He jumps up & play mouths, as well as bouncing around like Tigger. When he play mouths it can hurt. He’s not being aggressive, he’s playing, but he needs to learn this is not how you play with people! This is work in progress.
He is currently in foster with 4 dogs & 4 cats (only really sees one regularly) and he’s been fantastic!
He goes on regular dog walks with a dog walker to meet new doggy friends & get more social interaction.
We think he is over stimulated in his current foster home as he doesn’t rest as much as he should, so a smaller “pack” household is better suited to Harry.
We also think another lab size dog in the home would be ideal for him.
He is really good on lead, hardly pulls anymore, stops at the road, knows key words such as:
Stop – at the road
Cross – cross the read
Biscuit – for a recall treat
Sit – sit down
Paw – give paw
He’s a beautiful, loving, well natured dog, who deserves the best! He has some issues but if a family can handle them and train him
correctly, they will be rewarded with the most loving and passive dog ever. He’s great with dogs and cats (we have a houseful) and truth be told, they bully him slightly.
Please message us at healingpawsanimalrescue@outlook .com if you are interested and have the time and commitment for Harry. We will in turn put you in direct contact with his foster mum.
We hope there is a family out there for him as he is an extra special boy who deserves all the love and home comforts life can offer.
