HARRI COULD LIVE WITH A PLAYFUL RESIDENT DOR OR COULD BE AN ONLY DOG AS LONG AS HE HAS LOTS OF DOGGY FRIENDS THAT HE CAN SEE DAILY AND OWNERS WHO WOULD BE HOME MOST OF THE TIME
WOULDN’T RECOMMEND CATS OR SMALL FURRIES
Harri is adorable 3 year old Setter that has the super power of only having 3 legs. He loves life, everyone and finds every new experience fun. He is full of energy, positivity and his happiness is contagious. Hari’s world is all about fun and adventure. He is very loving and adores being fussed and cuddled. He gets on well with all dogs (currently being fostered with 4 other dogs of various sizes). He is starting to learn to walk on a lead doubled with a harness and is doing well, he just wants to explore everything whilst walking and can be a little all over the place so will need help focusing on walks. He would love to run free but will need recall training to enable him to do this safely.
Harri has no known health issues apart from his missing leg.
As Harri is quite large and very boisterous, he would not be suitable to be in a home with small children as he would probably knock them over. He would be fine with older children who are used to big, boisterous dogs.
Harri loves other dogs and is happy living with all sizes of dogs. He would happily rush up to every dog he meets on a walk so needs to learn basic training. He has not been on walks in his foster home as not had second vaccination, but has done some basic training in the garden. He is very quick to learn and responds well to being told to leave when meeting another dog. He would be happy in a home with other dogs or on his own as long as he gets opportunities to socialise with other dogs.
Harri has not been cat or small furry tested and we would be wary as he wants to play with everything
Harri is 99% housetrained going outside to toilet but occasionally forgets. His training will need to continue to stop him and praise him when he gets it right. He happily sleeps on a rug in the hall or on a cosy dog bed in an open crate. He is gradually getting brave enough to come into the living room but has not yet ventured to sleep on the sofas. He adores toys he can chase and will catch tennis balls all day. He loves nothing better than to lie in the garden playing with a toy. He happily shares his toys with the other dogs in his foster home and if a bigger or smaller dog takes his toy, he will get another one. He is such a chilled out boy. He has destroyed the odd toy to get to the squeaky but has not otherwise been destructive in the home.
Harri eats well and is having a mix of wet and dried food. He eats away from the other dogs but is not at all aggressive over his food bowl. He is happy for others to come along and lick it clean after he has eaten. He hasn’t been left alone for long and when he is he is with the other dogs but doesn’t like to be left for too long.
Harri is an early riser and likes to sing with the birds which is by woofing to the world that he is happy to be alive and safe. Once he has had his morning sing song and a wee he will happily go back to bed for a few more hours napping and dreaming of his adventures for the day. This is being worked on in his foster home and training will need to continue.
Harri travels really well in a car on the back seat with the seat belt attached to his harness and lies quietly. He could travel in a crate but may need help getting into it. He adores going to the vets as he sees this as another wonderful adventure.
Harri needs a forever home with at least one other active, playful dog with owners who can continue his training and take him on adventures. He could live with older children as he’s so playful he may accidently knock any little ones over. He needs a forever family where someone will be home for most of the time and will continue his training in a positive manner.
