Harriett is a middle-aged couch potato who's affectionate to the humans she loves and doesn't ask for much from them - except treats. She's a food motivated girl who's been especially fond of her foster caregivers and her APA! friends.

She may be a lazy girl, but she's already learned to obey "sit," "down" and "roll over." She walks well on her leash, often stopping and smelling what she sees.

This funny, stubborn lady would love a low-traffic home with one or two people who are there most of the time or who work from home. She needs some help overcoming some separation anxiety and can use ongoing assistance with her crate training and weight loss. She hasn't interacted much with other dogs in her playgroups but might do well with a doggy housemate. Come meet her, her snorting will grab your heart!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
