If you like unique dogs, 5-year-old Harry's looks and personality are for you! His cute expression, mismatched ears, wiggly stick-straight tail and pouty underbite will melt your heart. He has lots of energy and loves to play fetch, so he would do best in a home with a yard where he can run and get lots of exercise. A "dog on springs," he is always jumping and twisting in the air. He would probably be a great frisbee partner! He's a bit clumsy though, likely due to some arthritis in his hip, so he will need joint supplements, regular walks to ward off stiffness, and ongoing monitoring to make sure he stays comfortable as he ages.
Harry is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs and kids. He is afraid of cats and barks at them, but we're working on breaking that behavior. He understands "no" and seems to be a quick learner. When crated he barks and cries initially but will quiet down after a while. He poops outside but does mark his territory indoors so he will need a patient, tolerant owner who is willing to work with him.
Since we saved Harry from a high kill rate shelter in Texas, we don't know that much about his past. He has inflamed, very itchy skin and a bald patch on his back, so he's being treated for mange. The condition is not contagious, but it's possible that he also has some allergies going on. Time will tell as it can take months for mange to completely clear up.
Harry is a wonderful, affectionate boy who is well worth the extra TLC he needs at the moment. If you think you might be his special someone, please take a chance on meeting Harry to see for yourself how wonderful he is.
