Fosterer Lizzie helped Harry on leaps and bounds with his confidence
Once we had Harry’s snapping under control, he went to stay with Lizzie, an experienced fosterer. This really helped him as she had an older dog who could be a role model. Lizzie was also able to continue his training in a calmer home environment. Her children loved playing with him and he was able to burn off some of his energy. Before long, Harry was ready to return to Woodgreen, relaxed and ready to meet his potential match!
Our team had been looking for owners with an active lifestyle who had lots of time and patience to deal with his non-stop puppy energy. Harry also needed to continue his training with loving owners who were looking for a very playful dog.
Had we found Harry’s new family?
Terry, Sarah and their two children were the first pick for our Matching team. They were looking for a small dog to join their family and make lots of happy memories with. Dad, Terry was sadly unwell and wanted his family to have a companion who could provide lots of love and comfort for them when he wasn’t around anymore.
Terry picked Woodgreen because he knew how hard the charity worked to find new homes for thousands of pets each year. Back in the mid-1990’s he had featured dogs at Woodgreen on his local radio station to support our rehoming efforts.
Now he was back to help his family find a dog which would help them keep making happy memories when he passed on from his terminal cancer diagnosis.
