Harry is a cheeky chappy, typical terrier through and through. He is full of character and personality but is also a very well mannered house dog.

Harry has been living with other dogs in his foster home and can be rehomed into an existing pack or as the only dog. He is excitable around other dogs and this is an issue which will require further work from a new home. If other dogs are running around and playing excitedly, he gets over-excited and can start to nip them. This is an inappropriate play behaviour rather than aggression. He is currently attending Tailwagger training mainly for the socialising and would like to continue with something similar in his new home.

Harry cannot be rehomed with cats or small animals and this is not negotiable. He will chase cats and has serious intent. Ideally he would be best suited to a home where neighbouring cats rarely visit a garden just in case. His recall is good with his foster home but this will need to be a continued focus for a new home to make sure he has a bombproof recall and can be called away from distractions in case he spots a cat when off lead on a walk.
Harry will need a very secure garden in his new home as he can be an escape artist. Please do not apply to adopt him unless you have good fencing without gaps or are able to organise for your garden to be secure before adoption.

Harry has been fine to be left for short periods however, he does love company and would not be suitable for a full time worker but could be left part time. He is not a demanding dog in the home and is very quiet and well mannered. He loves to go out for walks and explore new places but he does not have high energy requirements to meet. He is a bright dog who would relish mental stimulation and further training. He is also a cuddly and tactile dog who loves to be in contact with the people he bonds to.

Harry has a scruffy curly coat which will need regular upkeep and grooming. Luckily he is very good to handle and enjoys being brushed.

All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to rehoming. A homecheck will be required, and you will need to come and meet the dog with your own dogs and family.

Harry's thought for the day: "somebody adopt me quick before she gets me one of those ridiculous bath robes!"

Harry is undergoing some training with his foster home to work on his lead walking and excitable behaviour around other dogs so his rehoming will have to be delayed for a couple of weeks. You can still register an interest in rehoming him when he is ready.

Well Harry has settled into his new foster home as you will see from the pics and made everyone fall in love with him. He has learnt to respect my beagle especially when the fire is on as she will not give that up for anyone. He is house trained , no accidents and goes as soon as he is put out. he does crave company and doesnt like me going to work allday even though he has the garden to run about in. He is not good with cats and had a bit of a scrap with one in my garden which he came off worse with afew scratches to his face. He is a lovely cuddly boy who would sit on your lap all day if he could although gets a bit vervous around strangers at first.
He is very agitated around other dogs at the moment and this really is work in progress he does become very distressed and snappy but I am positive that with a bit of hard work and TLC he will become the perfect dog and he really is worth the extra work as he truly is lovely. I really dont want to let him go but am sure he would rather a family where there are more people around for most of the day.

well its been a week of training for our Harry and I have to say hes been a little star. There has been a definate improvement in such a short time so I am optimistic that he will in time overcome his fear of things especially dogs. His loose lead walking is coming on great and although we dont get far he has learnt that if he pulls we stop. He is becoming more focused on me when we are out instead of everything else that moves and when I call him back on his long lead he looks at me straight away and comes back to me (admitedly for a piece of sausage). I have been trying to avoid other dogs and let him see them from afar and then make him walk away and although he still gets frustrated its not at the level he was a week ago. He is a cheeky chap and everyone who has met him has fallen in love with him , he gives the best cuddles in the dogworld and is a great little boy in the house. Im very very proud of him and know that his new family will be very lucky people.

Harry is not available for adoption at the moment until re-assessed but interest can be registered in advance.

Harry has done really well this weekend .I have been keeping him at a distance from other dogs when possible and this seems to work at the moment, he gets less wound up and actually walked infront of some dogs for quite a distance without any nonsense (this was a huge step for him) . His lead walking has come on at an amazing pace with just 20/30 mins training every evening. He has improved on his recall from a long lead although I have not yet let him off the lead totally. He continues to be a funny loving cuddly dog in the house and tries his best to get my Beagle to play ruff but does respect her space.
