Sweet Harlo is a one-and-a-half-year-old female German short-haired Pointer/Boxer cross with a striking brindle coat. She came into the care of the BC SPCA Trail Regional Branch on March 28, 2012 because her owners were moving across the country and unable to bring her along.
Harlo is well trained and possess a stable foundation of dog knowledge; she obeys basic commands and she is an excellent walker. Harlo is very intelligent and always looks to her human for direction, making her an incredibly respectful and trainable dog.
As with all dogs, Harlo does have a few things about her personality that will need to be worked on. Since she is a pointer, she has the famous pointer prey drive. This means that if she sees any type of small animal, whether it be a bunny, cat or small dog, she wants to chase and catch the animal.
With that being said, Harlo can be taught small animal desensitization, and with time and training, she will become calmer when she sees a small animal.
If you feel you could give a Harlo a good home, and have the time and patience to invest in training her, please visit the BC SPCA Trail Regional Branch. The shelter can also be reached at 250-368-5910 and firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: We ask that those interested in adopting her research desensitization training in advance as Harlo will need to start this training immediately to curb her prey drive).
