Harvest Moon

Harvest started out as a shy guy, but as he gets more used to the world, he is jumping in with all 4 paws more often now!  We think having another pooch around would be really helpful to keep this up too.  He loves saying hello, loves treats, loves to eat, and loves to talk back sometimes too!  He needs to learn gentle when grabbing treats though!
Harvey, as he is also lovingly called, is a character and loves his cuddles.  He will ask for a good cuddle when he comes out of his crate in the morning and then will head outside to do his business and play with the dogs in the home. He is working on his housetraining, but still needs lots of praise to keep it up so regular trips outside are a must!  He is a big fan of toys, but needs durable ones, so he asks that you stock up now, haha.  When he is tired, and he sees you, he will come over and ask to nap with you.  He’s pretty great that way.
Harvest will likely grow up to be a big boy, so we would like to see him with someone, or a family, that will take him to positive reinforcement classes.  This will be beneficial to him and to his new people in his life too.
