Biography

Cute Harper has a face you can’t resist. At 36 lbs she is the right size for any home and travels great in the car. I met and a shy timid Harper on 3/6/24. Her 1st birthday was 4/20/24. I was attracted to Harper because she is super cute and sweet. She was surrendered by her previous owner on 1/20/24 for biting a 10 yo. Harper doesn’t bite anyone. She is a puppy and nips when she is playing. At the time she only weighed 32lbs and should be 40.
I got her heart worm test done and have her on Nexguard plus. She is very healthy. She is on her last bag of Purina Pro Plus high protein puppy food. She is fed a total of 3 cups 3x daily plus treats for training. I’ve noticed she has grown taller and her hip bones aren’t as prominent.
I noticed mid April Harper was spinning and circling so on 4/26 I started Harper on calming chews due to her signs of anxiety.
Harper gives clear signs of potty (our cue word) by staring and licking you. She poops at least 4 times a day after eating. She does pee a little if she thinks she is in trouble. Lately she has been having some pee accidents at night but just since I brought a foster dog into the house.
Harper learns well and is food motivated. She can do ‘wait’ at her food bowl and the door, ‘sit’, quiet to stop barking and has stopped counter surfing. She needs more work on pulling in the leash.
I think she wants to be the center of attention but enjoys meeting buddies for play time.
I have never surrendered my animals, as they are for life. I even have Harper signed up for training classes. I’m sad to say that at my age the way she wants to play so rough every day has made bloody scratches on my legs and arms, bruising on my arms from her nipping, stress on my shoulders from pulling the leash and lastly my inability to be able to exercise her enough to deplete her excess energy.
