Poor Harvey. He was left alone when his jerk of an owner moved. Lucky Harvey. A friend rescued him and took him in. He was fearful at first about being left alone, but got over that in about a week.
Harvey is a great dog. Our vet staff loved him right away. According to his foster mom, he is housebroken, not an inappropriate barker, and sleeps through the night in a dog bed. He goes out on a walk daily and is good on a leash. He got along with the resident dog instantly and allows the resident dog to be the leader. He likes having another dog around. We think it makes him feel safe. His foster mom reports that he is a very easy dog to take care of. He would be the perfect dog for a senior person looking for a low maintenance dog.
Unfortunately, his prior owner didn't leave any information about his prior medical history. He has had a very thorough exam by our vet and was found to have an ear infection which has now been treated. His teeth were a mess and he has now had a thorough dental cleaning and one extraction. His pre-op blood work shows everything normal. Our best guess is that he is 7 to 8 years old. So there is a lot of life left in this guy! We think he is a cattle dog and shepherd mix, though he looks more like a cattle dog in his photos (stay tuned for new pics coming soon!) but looks more like a shepherd in person. He has a cute "one-ear-up-and-one-ear-down" pose that you will often find him in. If you think you're the one to give Harvey a nice home and family for this next chapter of his life, he is ready to meet you!
Harvey's adoption fee of $295 includes: Vet exam, 4DX heartworm-lyme test, Chemistry and CBC blood panels, rear leg x-rays, dental cleaning, Bordetella vaccine, DHPP (distemper combo) vaccine, Rabies vaccine, deworming, microchip, heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, and he is neutered. This guy is ready to go!
