Meet Harlow

MY STORY: Harlow came to CBHS as an owner surrender.

AGE: Approximately 7 years old.

Hi There!
My name is Harlow.
I am a sweet laid back girl who loves attention and being close to the humans. I love lounging outside in the sunshine. I can be a little timid when meeting new people. I has been noticed that I warm up to women faster than I do with men. If you give me a bit of time though, I'll be your best friend.

When I arrived at CBHS, it was noticed that I would limp quite a bit on my right rear leg. I was seen at Cedar Valley Vet Center and they determined that I had torn Anterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACLs) in both hind legs. Yikes! Upon further examination it was determined that my left ACL had actually healed a lot by itself. Surgery was not recommended for my left ACL. My right ACL was a different story. It was causing me a lot of pain and discomfort, even on medication, and it was decided that the best course of action was surgical correction. The surgery was a success! I am now healing and looking for a home of my own where I can continue to get better everyday.

My previous owner stated that I was good with other dogs. I have met other dogs while at CBHS. I tend to like dogs that are lowkey, submissive, and not overbearing. I am not a big fan of bouncy, overly playful dogs. I'm just an older girl that's trying to heal, I don't want to play with the other dogs right now. I would love to do a meet and greet with any other dogs in your home prior to adoption.

I am a sweet lowkey girl who looking for a loving home that will provide me with loves of love and attention. Can I be your best friend?
