Why hello! Iím Harvey! Iím an energetic and happy 4 year old, 100% pointer boy (I have the DNA test to prove it)! My day job includes patrolling my foster parentís yard for squirrels and critters with my foster bro. In my free time, I love to nap, help around the house (particularly being a sous chef for my foster parents while they cook), play fetch, and watch TV. I love to exercise my mind and body by doing puzzle toys, going for runs/walks, and having access to a backyard to spend as much of the day outside as I possibly can! I love toys, especially the snuggly stuffed animals!
I am a very respectful boy. My foster family leaves me out to free roam when Iím alone, and they say Iím the goodest boy. I donít break, steal, or chew on household items. Thatís commendable right?! My dog sitters say Iím the best one in the bunch!
My foster family also tells me that Iím super smart. I love learning. It is super fun for me! I even graduated from a behavioral training program to help me with some of my hold ups, including guarding my precious toys and meeting new dogs. Iím looking for a family that is willing to help me manage these quirks with my skill set. My guarding issues are well managed, and kiddos that are 12 and up would be very fun for me!
Iíve had a troubled past, but I have come such a long way! I was found as a stray in Kansas, and everyone is pretty sure I was a hunting dog before my cozy, domesticated life as a foster pup. I donít remember everything, but I think they are onto something! I sometimes have nightmares when my past haunts me, so I like to sleep in my own space in case I wake up disoriented. For these reasons, I probably shouldnít sleep in bed with you, but I definitely love getting pats, ear rubs and neck massages, and hanging out as your companion when you watch TV, read, cook, and go about your day.
Even though I love my foster bro, Iím not comfortable around other dogs. Heís a special chap! I will be happiest as the only dog in the household. Iíve met a couple of cats, and think theyíre cool.
Okay, so I require a little extra love, patience, and attention, (who among us doesnít have a few issues?) but I return the favor with so much love, fun, and loyalty!
Would you be my superhero and adopt me? Iíve been working on myself and waiting a long time for my furever family, and I canít wait to meet you!
