If you are looking for a best friend for life, look no further than Harper. Not only is she beautiful, but she is the most loyal and devoted girl you will ever meet. Harper needs a confident, yet gentle leader. Once Harper trusts her human, he will do ANYTHING for you. This confident, yet gentle leader cannot be swayed by her EXTREME cuteness. Harper will make you laugh as she bounces between bones and chasing ice cubes around on the slick floor, and will turn her belly up for a good scratch. She is a lovable "snuggle bug," but requires rules and structure. Remember I said that Harper is a confident dog? Once you are her people, she will love you and protect you with everything she has. She needs a leader that teaches her that you have her back so she can relax. Harper is extremely well mannered in the house, crate trained, house broken, and walks very well on a leash without distractions. Harper wants to have canine companions, but she just doesn't know how to stop being the boss. She needs to be an "only child" and will do best with an experienced dog owner. Harper does well with adults, but should not be in a home with children. She may try to boss them around. A trainer is working with Harper as she's a little weary of strangers and keeps trying to boss her foster sibling around.

This dog is now available for adoption. We can only let you meet the dog and answer questions about this dog if we have an adoption application on file. Sending in a request, will only delay you getting your questions answered. Please fill out the application at:

Our Adoption Process...

Found an animal on our site and want to meet them or find out more about them? Fill out the adoption questionnaire located below and submit to us. Once we have reviewed/approved your application, we will provide you with the foster contact information so that you can find out more and arrange a “meet and greet”. All of our animals are located in foster homes throughout the Triangle area.

When going to a “meet and greet”, please make sure you take any family members and other pets (if at all possible) to observe their interactions. This can make introduction into the new home easier for the animals and for you.

The animal’s foster parent will ultimately make a recommendation to the organization regarding the permanent placement of the animal. Once an adoption decision has been made by both parties, we ask for an adoption fee to help us cover spay/neutering, shots, medical treatment, food and supplies – this amount only partially cover the cost of expenses and allows us to help as many animals as possible!

What if the adoption doesn’t work out? We have a lifetime return policy on our animals as we don’t want to see them turned back into a shelter.
