Meet Harvey

Hi my name is Harvey! I’m 3.5 years old and 60 lbs. Needless to say, I definitely need to lose about 15lbs. I was recently returned to ODHS after being adopted as a puppy 3.5 years ago. I'm looking for an active family that will help me get "fit" again and give me lots of outlets for physical and mental stimulation. If left to my own devices, I will tend to revert to behaviors that you may not like. I will need a strong pack owner to correct me when I get out of hand.

I do not do well with young children because I can be nippy (I'm an expert herder - it's part of me, so be prepared to give me outlets for that). Potential jobs for me could be herding livestock, chasing balls or frisbees, or doing fun dog sports like agility. I have good recall and know basic commands.

I do well with other dogs. I am a bit unsure of myself at first. Especially since I am so fat, I want to make a good first impression! I don't know quite yet how to play with them, but would love to learn!

You can come adopt me or even join our foster program to help the humans learn all the awesome things about new dogs like me! Learn more on our website!

Hope to see you soon!
