Hello, Harvey! This sweet, 65-lb. boy is a people person – loving, human-oriented, playful and smart. He may look like a hybrid sort of large Doberman, but he’s actually a Coon Hound. The Black and Tan Coon Hound is a relative of the Bloodhound, and is by nature intelligent and loyal. They are excellent family dogs too -- great even with small children and in noisy family situations.

 

Harvey was found wandering the streets, and was more than happy to continue his scavenging around. But a kind person knew this was a dangerous life for a dog – which was evident from the bites and cuts he was already sporting – so she scooped him up and was able to bring him into our program. He’s been neutered, micro-chipped and has all of his shots. Hooray!

 

It's easy to fall in love with Harvey. He's very people-oriented, and very smart. He gets along with other dogs (not /entirely/ sure about cats, they still seem like confusing creatures to him) and he loves to please.

 

He is a good leash-walker and is learning good dog manners. This boy would do best with a moderately active family, one where he has a nice sized back yard and can go on walks or play outside, since he LOVES to play fetch and tag – and one with a sturdy wood fence, since chain link fences are child’s play to him. He is no escape artist, just still has the brain of a puppy for a bit longer and wants to meet passersby he sees over his foster mom’s fence. Ahem.
