This fun loving, bouncy character was rescued from a pound where he had been placed as a stray. He is a very affectionate boy who is always looking for attention. Harp is however very full on and strong on lead. He loves company and can become bored easily if not given enough stimulation. Harp is sociable towards dogs, but may prove too much for some smaller or older dogs. Harp has got more used to travelling in the car now and his adopter says he was good in the boot of the car if there was a dog guard in place. Despite toileting in the house on initial arrival, Harp is housetrained. He is a very fast learner, so with time and consistent training we hope he will make a fab companion! Harp is very affectionate and lots of fun here at the kennels but is a little more challenging in a home environment and his adopter will need to be up for this challenge! Due to this we will not be rehoming Harp to a family with young children.
Rescued from a pound where he was placed as a stray. He was since rehomed twice, each for a very short period of time (5 days) but unfortunately the first time he was returned as the adopter was unable to cope with the training required for him. He was then rehomed and his adopter told us he was great in lots of respects however he proved too full on with one family member who did not feel comfortable with him. Harps third rehome called us as they were worried about his behaviour in the house and were not comfortable with his behaviour. We have since had Harp in a foster home to find out more about this, and we have found that despite him being very full on and over aroused in the house. he can be manage with the right training and guidance.
Harp needs an owner who has experience and understanding of working breed dogs. He requires a home where he will get lots of physical and mental stimulation. As he is a collie x, he is energetic and prone frustration if bored. He is very full on so is not for the faint hearted. He will need an owner who understands he needs consistent training using rewards based methods. He dislikes cats. Harp needs an owner who can commit to his training and understands he needs guidance.
