Meet Harper! She is a sweet 6-month-old yellow Labrador Retriever mix with beautiful brown eyes.
Her family surrendered Harper to WCLRR when they found they couldn’t give her the attention and training she needed.
Harper is a medium-energy dog that is very calm despite her young age. She lives with two other labs, three tiny dogs, and a cat; they all get along well.
Harper loves to play with the other dogs, especially the younger lab. She also enjoys chasing the cat, not in an aggressive way to hurt the cat, but just for fun. But when the cat stops mid-chase and turns around to look at Harper, Harper doesn’t know quite what to do!
Harper’s foster describes her as the sweetest dog she’s ever fostered, and Harper has become a family favorite. Harper loves people of all ages. She will run up to greet visitors, and she adores children. She takes treats gently from adults and children. Harper rarely gets on the furniture but will cuddle with her people if they sit on the floor with her.
Harper was not house-trained when she came to WCLRR. However, her foster has been working with her on house and crate training, and Harper is doing great! When you point to it, Harper will go right in the crate, although treats are always a good incentive!
Harper will eat her meals in the crate and stay in it during the day when her foster goes out. She hasn’t had any accidents in the crate. Harper sleeps quietly in the crate through the night and will patiently wait to be let out with the other dogs in the morning.
Harper’s ideal home would be with an active individual, couple, or family. Harper did not have any training before coming to WCLRR, and she needs a family that will take the time to teach her leash manners and other commands.
Harper is a friendly girl that loves people of all ages and would be fine in a home with older children. She gets along well with dogs and cats. However, she would enjoy a house with a younger dog, or dogs, for companionship and playtime.
Harper is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, and microchipped.
