My Story

Date of Birth: 10/2006
Description: male, merle piebald, natural ears
HHGDR Suggests: Obedience Class
Good With: Dogs, Adults, Children, NO Cats

I am a very loving boy and although you may say I am old I do not agree. I am very active and playful and I want a family that will play with me and hey even take me for walks!

Many years ago I was dumped on the busy streets of Columbus and left to fend for myself. Lucky for me, the wonder people at the Franklin County Animal Shelter came and got me before I was hit by a car. When my stray time was up, Harlequin Haven was called to come for me. I needed to gain a few pounds but that didn't take long because I love to eat!! I was not at the rescue long before I found what I thought was my forever family!! I even had brothers and a sister. Unfortunately, after almost 5 years in my home, I, along with my brother Lennon, were homeless again. Our owners had lost their home and were financially unable to care for us.

Eleven months later I was again adopted. This time I had a sister, Priya, who had also been adopted. I thought I had found my forever home but, guess what... again I was wrong!! This time my home lasted 2 years and again we were dumped. Our mom adopted 2 children and got married and I guess the last straw was when I got diarrhea and made a mess. She said that we made the floors too dirty for the baby to crawl on. We are now back at the rescue, and while we are disappointed, we at least know we are safe here.

We require a fenced yard, fence must be at least 4 feet tall (48 inches) and must attach or surround with direct access to the building where the dog will be housed, NO Exceptions. Invisible and electric fences do NOT meet the requirements of a fenced yard. A yard of adequate size, to be determined on an individual basis.

All pets in the home must be altered prior to applying to adopt. Adopter must be 21 years old. In some rare cases apartments may be acceptable, to be determined on an individual basis. We do not accept checks or credit cards.
