Harper is 9 years and 7 months old.  He is neutered.

Harper was rehomed and then bought back to us due to his 1st owner being terminally ill.

He was rehomed again but bought back to us due to them relocating.

 

He has a cornel ulcer on his eye which is being treated by us at Woodgreen and is reducing and looking good. 

He has a de-pigmented nose.

Has a small pea-sized lump which also has been looked at by our vets, and feel it could well be the site of an insect bite.

Our vets would be happy to give you any more information that you would require.

 

He is to live in a low dog-populated area. Will need quiet areas to walk where he can enjoy it without being approached by other off lead dogs.

He has bitten another dog owner when they tried to touch him after a scuffle with a dog (high state of arousal).

He has snapped at a vet after administering ear treatment (his ears were very sore at this point).

Cannot live with cats.

Cannot have dogs next door.

Children would need to be older (ideally teenage) who understand he is an older boy and needs his peace and space.

 

He was very avoidant of the young child in the previous home and started to toilet indoors when the baby was born. Had never done it before.

He has been left home alone for up to 9 hours in the past.

Harper is having on-going training for distraction around dogs.

He likes to sleep in his owners bedroom.

He has been given free roam of the house and is more comfortable that way being left.

He is calm and affectionate with people he knows.

He is sociable and loves attention.

OK for general day to day handling i.e. having harness put on etc.

he is wonderful as usual, spending his days snoozing and very affectionate when I get home. On walks, he has good and bad days, sometimes doesn’t pay too much attention to dogs, some days he struggles and gets quite frustrated and stressed even seeing them from a distance. He has been much better in Surgery recently so the muzzle training isn’t going to be as much of a priority for him anymore, although he will wear it if needed. I think for the right, quiet location he won’t be a project, and will be a super easy dog to settle in and live with.
