This is Harper on of many siblings rescued with his mum Hermione.
Harper and siblings were found young and have lived in the shelter ever since, now 4 months old they are ready to find new families in the UK.
All the pups are young and happy, but need guidance, routine, teaching to walk on the lead, toilet training, meeting other dogs and becoming well adjusted dogs. They are blank canvases who will rely on adopters guidance.
If you do nto have another dog in the home you will need to detail in your application how you plan to socialise and your experience with puppy training.
He is fully vaccinated and microchipped, but is still too young to be neutered so adopters will be asked to commit to doing this as soon as he is old enough.
His new family will need to be prepared for the hard work of a pup - basic training, toileting, walking on and off lead, getting used to noises and living in a home.
The decision to adopt a puppy should not be taken lightly - we have had puppies returned as people have not been fully prepared for the hard work that can come. If you invest time and energy into the advice we give you, Harper will adapt and become a rounded dog. But please do not underestimate this can mean a few weeks of hard work.
Please only apply if you are 100% committed to the hard work a puppy can bring, broken sleep, toilet training, socialisation, boundaries. The first week is very important and with the right boundaries and guidance Harper will easily adjust and make a lovely addition to any home but adopters need to be fully prepared.
IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO ADOPT NOW, PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS OUR ADOPTION PROCESS CAN BE SPEEDY ONCE WE IDENTIFY A SUITABLE HOME.
SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES WILL BE IN PLACE TO ALLOW MEETING/ADOPTIONS.
