(when grown) -
Spayed or Neutered,
Location: Sioux Falls, SD
Harry is a happy, silly little dude. I'm not sure what circumstances brought him to the shelter, but I do think that he was loved and cared for in his previous life, and I'd expect an easy transition into his next chapter.
I've only had him four days, and every day he is noticeably calmer. This morning he peacefully snored right through my work calls, and he's now curled up next to me on the couch, having fallen asleep with a toy hanging out of his mouth. Future fosters and adopters are warned that he has a habit of draping himself across your lap and then passing out, forcing you to remain motionless until your legs fall asleep.
Harry is potty trained. (Ok, he did have an accident on his very first day here, but I think he was just discombobulated.) He's also crate trained-he even eats in his crate. He knows that's where good things happen. I strongly recommend that his next home stick with crating him when he's alone. Like all curious kiddos, he explores the world by putting things in his mouth. And he's not picky! Fortunately, he is gentle and will let you take back your shoe, power cord, remote control, rock, etc., without any fuss.
He's a great walker and mostly keeps a nice, loose leash. Squirrels and bunnies are distracting, but he moves on quickly.
He is very interested in other dogs and sometimes howls with indignation when he is not allowed to meet them. I do think he just wants to play, but his people will want to keep working on good leash behavior. At the shelter he was selective with male dogs but played well with a female dog, and he lived with both previously.
Overall, he's a sweet and snuggly guy, with a wonderful squishy face and a lot of love to give!
The best way to show interest in an animal is to submit an adoption application by visiting our website (www.rescuenetworkmn.org).
Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, and bordetella), heartworm and flea/tick preventatives, heartworm test (dogs), FIV/FeLV test (cats), dewormed, and microchip implant (including registration).
Rescue Network is strictly foster based which means all adoptable animals are in a home and there cannot be a meet until an application is submitted and approved. We have no way of knowing the breeds in the animals. All breeds listed are best guess.
