Harry's story is a sad one. His owner had to be hospitalized and is more then likely not able to return. He and 8 other dogs, 3 horses, a mule and 15 cats were left without anyone to look after them properly. The property is located near Lancaster. A friend of the owner has been coming up once a week to take care of the house and the animals and hired a neighbor to come once a day to feed and water them. The rest of the time they are alone in their kennels, house and corrals. Paw Parent and another rescue were contacted and asked for help. Paw Parent was able to take in one dog with horrible fly bitten ears and two others were taken by another rescue. There are now still 6 dogs at this property patiently waiting to find a home or a rescue to take them in, one of them is Harry. I go up once a week to clean the kennels and let the dogs out of their runs for some exercise.
Harry is very mellow and sweet and does really well on a leash. He is very affectionate and loves to ride in a car.
He must be around 7 years old and weighs approximately 60-65 pounds. He is neutered but needs to be updated on his shots. He has a skin condition that is most likely caused by a food allergy. HIs belly and parts of his legs look red and irritated. He would probably do really well on a grain free diet.
Please call 661-724-0642 if you are interested in meeting him. He would love to make a house with a cozy dog bed his home.
