Harry

BREED: Saluki/Canaan mix

SIZE/WEIGHT: Medium/23 kg
HISTORY: Harry was rescued from the desert as a young puppy. He had been living in the Bahrain shelter (near Qatar) for over 6 years, most his life, waiting for a forever home, and one day the opportunity finally came. A young couple adopted him, and he was so happy to be free of the confines of the shelter (which is steel and concrete with few people taking them out being its a very large shelter without many volunteers). However, due to no fault of his own, they returned him only 2 weeks later, he was scared and depressed. A local kennel reached out when they saw his story and offered free boarding, the same kennel that Pacino lived in (who had been brutally beaten and now in most wonderful home in Calgary). Harry has been there for 5 months now, and is doing well, however he cannot stay in the kennel long term, and he wants nothing more than a loving home and a family to spend his later years of life with.
TEMPERAMENT: Harry is a gentle and calm boy.
PERSONALITY: He is very friendly with both people and other dogs. He likes to play and socialize with the dogs, and craves attention from humans.
HOW IS DOG WITH CHILDREN: He has been really good with the kids that he has met at the shelter. He craves attention, like most all dogs loving human company.
HOW IS DOG WITH OTHER ANIMALS: He gets along really well with other dogs.
MEDICAL CONCERNS: Harry is hard of hearing but not fully deaf. He used to get elbow sores from lying on tiles before going into foster at the kennel.
PETS NEEDS/BEHAVIOURAL INFO: Harry needs a family/owner who is aware of his hearing problems and is looking for a lower energy senior dog.
BEST MATCH: He would ideally be placed with an older owner or someone that can provide him with a slower paced lifestyle.
FAVORITE THINGS: Human attention and cuddles.
SPECIAL NOTES (If any): He may lose more hearing as he ages.
