Foster Home Feedback 

5/21/2020: Harlow has really come out of his shell in the last few days. He is very vocal and will let you know anytime someone walks by or if he hears any strange noises. While he has warmed up to us, he is scared of any friends that we have come over. It will take a while for him to get used to any new people. We are slowly working on increasing the circle of people that he is ok with. We have a neighbor that comes by and gives the dogs treats every day. It's going on a week now and Harlow will take the treat but he is still not sure about this person. He will need an understanding home with a fence so that he can go outside safely without worry of strangers getting too close. 

Once Harlow warms up to you he loves to cuddle and play. He listens really well and it's been easy for us to safely direct him around our house, even when he wasn't really sure of us. While having another dog might help him be more comfortable, I also think he would love to eventually be the center of attention too.  

Harlow is very active and is almost always doing something. We have found the busier we keep him, the calmer and less vocal he will be. He will need an active home that also understands his general mistrust of new people. 

If you are willing to give Harlow space and time, he will make a great best friend. 

5/11/2020: Harlow is still settling in as it's been a rough few days. He came to us after being injured and has been on mostly kennel rest and only in the last few days has he started to come around. 

Harlow is crate trained and the crate seems to be his safe place right now. He hasn't had any accidents in the house. We try to take him out every 3 or 4 hours but he is in his crate for 9 hours at night without issue.  

Harlow had some sort of head injury but no broken bones and has recovered just fine. The only thing he is still healing up from is an ear infection, and neuter.  Because of this, he has not been able to play with our dog but the two have seen each other and sniff at each other, as well as hanging out in the same room. Harlow is in a crate while our dog is free or vice versa. They have been doing fine with the rotation schedule.

It takes Harlow a little while to warm up to people. We are only on day 5 and today is the first day we've really been able to play with him and not have him back away or hide.  He does seem to know "Sit", "Lay Down", and "Shake". He will also play fetch; he loves to chase things and will bring the ball back part of the time. 

Harlow will need an understanding home that will give him space and time to get comfortable being a pet dog. He also needs training on manners as once he does get comfortable, he does jump up and paw at you for attention.  

As Harlow is warming up, the German Shepherd traits are coming out more and more and while shy at times, he is still a working dog and is most happy when we are doing stuff with him. He is not a "sit on the couch and chill" dog. I tried that on Sunday and paced around the room and kept coming up to me like come on let's go do something. 

If you are looking for an active working dog and have the time to put in the work, Harlow is the dog for you.
