What Harper really needs is stability. While we never know the complete story of the pets who come to us, it is clear that this sweet girl’s life before PAWS was lacking in stability and opportunities for relaxation. In our time getting to know Harper, it’s become clear to us that PAWS has been her first safe and loving home.
Harper has been at PAWS for almost 7 months and is very ready to spend the rest of her life with her people. Harper bonds with new comers easily; with her people she’s affectionate, playful, a treat lover, and of course, adorable. A dream forever home for Harper would be quiet and have an outdoor area for her to enjoy basking in the sunlight.
Harper has recently returned to PAWS from a full-time training program where she worked on practicing relaxation and lowering her anxiety levels. As she settles into her new home, Harper will be better equipped to find a groove and feel secure. Harper will need medical support with a hip condition as she ages, and has undergone surgery while with PAWS to restore mobility in one of her legs but is otherwise healthy and thriving.
Harper is house-trained, leash-trained, and very treat motivated. She is great around children, and spectacularly gentle.
