Available Dogs - Harry
Hi, my name is Harry (although my foster family has nick named me Potter) and I am 5 months old. I have been with my foster family for a short time and I am learning what it means to be a real puppy.
My foster Mom was surprised when she brought me to my foster house as to how good I am! My foster Mom thought she would have to do a lot of crate training with me but I proved her wrong. I learned basic commands very quickly. I now know how to ring the bells to go outside, sit, go on walks, and go to the crate when she has to leave the house. I have a dog foster brother too and he has taught me a lot about being a dog. My dog foster brother is only 7 lbs but I know that he is the alpha dog, I don’t mind. I also have three human foster brothers…they are all teenagers. They do this really fun thing when I lay on my back…they scratch my tummy and it feels so good. They love on me so much and teach me how to love humans.
I really enjoy making my foster family proud. I haven’t chewed on anything but toys yet, I stay downstairs because that is where I like it the best, I don’t have to sleep in a crate at night because the area rug is so fuzzy and comfortable, and I only bark when playing. I also really like going on walks through the neighborhoods and hikes at Umstead Park. I still get a bit nervous driving in cars but I am getting more used to that every time we go somewhere.
So now, I am looking for my forever family…especially now that I know what it means to be in a loved home.

As trained as one would want him to be, Harry is a smart guy. He knows the following commands…sit, crate, no, stop, come and rings bells to go outside. He is much smarter than that and could be trained much more.
