Special Criteria

Rescued during Hurricane Harvey, Harry Potter spent some time at the Pet Reunion Pavilion at the NRG arena in Houston before coming to the Sanctuary. His caregivers at Dogtown describe him as extremely calm because he does not even notice when other dogs are barking at him. He loves attention and will lean into you when you pet him. Born in 2016, Harry Potter still displays some puppyish behavior. He can be very destructive with toys and bedding, and his caregivers had to remove the dog door flaps in his room so he wouldn't chew on them. Harry Potter likes to stay busy, and keeping him entertained is a good way to keep him from chewing on things. He loves training and learning new tricks, and he picks up new training cues really quickly. Because he has heartworm disease, Harry Potter will be starting treatment at the Sanctuary. In the meantime, he's already learned to walk nicely on a leash and he is working on his dog skills. He's done well meeting a handful of female dogs since he arrived at the Sanctuary. His caregivers plan to introduce him to other males soon and say he's shown great promise.
