HARPER IS LOCATED IN LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA
Meet Harper ! Harper is a gorgeous 5 year old brindle mastiff who weighs in at 120 pounds. She is smart and eager to please her humans. Want to be greeted like a rock star every time you enter the house, whether you’ve been gone for 5 minutes or 5 hours? Want a warm furry body next to you night or day? A built in alarm system? Harper is your girl!
Likes: Harper loves to be where her people are. She will gladly snooze at your feet if you are working or cuddle beside you while watching a movie. She would prefer to sleep next to you at night (with her head on your pillow if you’ll let her). She loves her chewies and her toys and exploring outside.
Dislikes: Harper is not a fan of being left alone. If your household is empty for long periods every day than Harper is not the girl for you. She does not love GETTING into the car but once in there she enjoys sticking her nose out the window and smelling all the smells.
Personality: Harper is a little reserved at first and takes her time getting to know someone new, but once you’re “in” you’re in and she will gladly cuddle next to you on the couch with her head in your lap. She is protective of her home and people and will let you know if there is someone outside, but once you let her the know the person is “OK” she stops barking. She does try to swipe a sandwich or 2 on occasion if it is left unattended but will stop if caught in the act!
Temperament: She is mostly very calm but has been known to get a case of the zoomies especially when she is happy or excited. She is a total lovebug however she does not respect personal space and will wedge herself next to you on a chair at any opportunity.
Energy level: Moderate energy – She is happy to snooze and chew on a chewie but will happily take a walk or romp around the backyard.
Favorite activities : Being with her people, cuddling, chewing a bully stick, hanging with her furry foster siblings.
Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: Harper currently lives with an 185 pound female Mastiff and a 50 pound male Cattle dog and gets along well with both but will need a slow introduction . Both dogs she lives with are fairly submissive and that dynamic works for her. She is closer with the other female and will cuddle up next to her to sleep on occasion. She is not recommended with small dogs and is untested with cats. She will not be adopted to a family with small children. She would be OK with older children who can be respectful, but would not do well in a house where there is lot of activity and new people coming and going.
Not good with: Small children, small dogs and strangers (at first)
Crate trained: She is not crate trained but has not been destructive when allowed to free roam.
Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Yes, she will require a fenced yard.
Walks well on a leash? Yes.
Challenges: Harpers biggest challenges are her separation anxiety and her tendency to be overprotective of her home. Harper will only be adopted to a home with another dog so she does not have to be alone if her people are away.
Any Medical issues? No, Harper is a healthy 5 year old.
What would be the best kind of home? Harper will do well in a fairly quiet home with another dog to keep her company. She needs a family where someone is home the majority of the time and is happy to have a constant cuddle buddy.
