This special lad raced 79 times on registered courses, before being sent to the notorious flapping tracks to keep running. We think he has more than earned a lazy retirement with plenty of love, treats, and big soft beds. Four-year-old Harrhy is a handsome black boy, and will be the pride and joy of his new family. He really wants to make friends, but is under-confident with new people and will require gentle handling while he learns that fuss and belly rubs are a good thing!
Harrhy will want a bit of time to get used to new things at his own pace, and an understanding home where he will be given the time and space he needs to learn how to be a pet. He walks confidently on the lead when out and about, and isn’t worried by traffic – but he’s only known life as a racing dog, so everyday life will be a whole new adventure for him.
Harrhy interacts well with other dogs, and will benefit from on-going socialisation with smaller breeds, as they are still a bit of a novelty. Because he should be kept on a lead at first when out and about, he will need a secure garden to exercise in. He could live with another large breed dog, but because he is anxious about over-enthusiastic petting, won’t be able to share a home with young children.
Could you give Harrhy the chance he so royally deserves, to put up his paws and start enjoying life? He’ll reward you with love, loyalty, and the satisfaction of seeing him grow from a boy who doesn’t know what affection is, to a waggy-tailed sofa-hogging sweetheart.
