When Harry went to his foster home it appeared he had never lived indoors and he was in rough shape. As he has warmed up to his foster home and has gotten much needed medical care, he has blossomed. He is quiet and seeks approval from his person. His favorite things are mealtime, kongs and bones. He is a perfect gentleman in his crate and on leash. His house manners are somewhat lacking but he is accepting of correction and eager to please. One or two short walks a day would be enough to keep this low energy, low key gentleman happy. He is a pleasure to have and wants only to have a kind scratch behind the ears, a regular meal and a warm, soft place to sleep. He would be perfect for an older person or someone seeking a low-energy companion. More than 2 or 3 stairs is troublesome for Harry so first floor living is perfect for him.
A volunteer writes: Harry might be old and overweight, but this guy sure knows how to sweep a gal off her feet! His face is full of character and his heart is full of warmth. He was quite weak when he arrived, but I found him sitting at the front of his cage, eager to go out. He seems housetrained and didn’t show any concerning behavior towards the dog in the pen adjacent to us. My love for Harry might be matched by his love for treats! Giving him one is all that’s needed to get his undivided attention. He “sit”s like a champ and does some serious drooling (it’s adorable) as he waits for them. He likes to be pet, makes soft eye contact, and when I sat down on the ground he wasted no time crawling into my lap. I’m completely smitten with Harry and I think you will be too…come meet him at Brooklyn ACC!
