Meet Harvey

Harvey is about 18 months old, and is a Rottweiler cross, we think crossed with a labrador, as he has a very labrador personality

affectionate, gentle and fixated on food! He's a big boy, but doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body. He loves food and treats, he loves cuddles, he loves walks and playing with other dogs. We're been socialising him down at the dog park, and he has been having a great time making new friends! He's also met a few cats now, and seems a bit bemused by them, but mainly just wants to go up and say hello. He didn't show signs of being distressed by his time in the pound. I think he is just one of those personalities that takes everything in his stride. He settled in to living with us very quickly, and felt like he had been part of our family for ages after only a couple of days. I have no idea how or why he ended up in the pound. Someone has given him a great start to life, and shown him lots of love and affection. He walks perfectly on the lead and knows how to sit and stay. He doesn't beg at the table. He is house-trained. This is not a dog who has been mistreated or neglected in anyway. He is really friendly and loves to greet everyone he meets out on his walks

even if sometimes he doesn't realise how big he is!

Harvey was adopted on 27 May 2012 after 2 weeks in foster care
