    Hi!

    My name is Harvey and I’m looking for a home where I can spend my golden years and enjoy the finer things in life! No one is exactly sure how old I am, they estimate I’m between 7-10 years old so I still have LOADS of love to give! I’m fairly small at 40lbs and knee height. I came into care from the NWT, I was being picked on by other dogs in the community and it left me with a few flesh wounds which have since been healing. I don’t let that affect me though; I’m still a happy, easy going guy!

    You may be wondering, why should I adopt an older dog? Well, I can give you a paw full of reasons!
    1) I’m house trained. I’ve never had an accident in the house.
    2) I don’t need excessive amounts of exercise. My needs are pretty moderate. I like my daily walks and getting out of the house, after that I’m pretty happy to just hang around; being part of the family is what’s most important to me.
    3) I sleep thru the night, sometimes, I even sleep in!
    4) I don’t chew or touch anything while you’re out – provided my needs are met of course.
    5) I travel well in the car
    6) I LOVE to cuddle! So my forever family will have to be ok with tons of cuddles the couch!

    I love hanging out with people and get along well with other dogs of all sizes. I even went to the office with my foster mom a few times and did great! I would be ok as an only dog provided I’m not left alone long hours or with a doggy brother/sister with similar temperament. While I’m very tolerant with everyone, I would prefer a quieter home. Young children and puppies can be too energetic/pushy for me. Despite my small size I’m a good jumper so my forever home must have a securely fenced yard (5-6 ft tall).

    If you’re looking for the perfect furry companion, look no further! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
