Let’s change that to Adopted Harvey!! Yippeee! Congratulations Arlene and Donald!

Our foster dog Harvey is now available for adoption. He is approximately 8 yrs. old. Black and white parti colored. He can be timid initially but soon warms up and loves his humans. He is a bigger cocker at about 32 pounds and is a sweet dog.

Harvey came to us from an inner city shelter, as a stray. As you can tell, he really needed a good grooming. He was so badly matted that he needed to be shaved down. His skin underneath told the tale. Broken heart


After some patience and praise, we have a new Harvey!


Harvey’s been living the country life with us. He hasn’t shown any interest in the horses or chickens but initially greeted the cats with enthusiasm. Now he just watches them go by.

He’s quite the couch potato and at first we had to convince him that going outside was a fun thing to do.


After a couple weeks…I think he agrees!

Look who wants to enjoy the fire with us “outside”!


We’re getting some hair regrowth and he’s such a handsome boy.


This is pretty much what Harvey enjoys. He’s a quiet dog that would rather lay by your feet or snuggle on the couch.

Not interest in the ball or fetch. He’d rather watch his foster siblings run around like crazy dogs.


Every now and then we’ll get some action. But this is pretty much when I yell “who’s hungry?”


After a walk around the fields with the rest of the pack.

He is housetrained and will let you know if he has to go out. He is also crate trained but we’ve found that he can be trusted and not crated at all.

He gets along with his foster siblings but does not like to share his chew toys. We feel he’d do best in a quite home with no young children and just enjoy life with his new family. As he was a stray, we feel he will need a secure fenced in yard.


Now how can someone resist this face??
