A Hound Like No Other

We picked up our new foster today. His name is Harris and he is really something else. He has demodex mange and an injured paw, but don't tell him that because he's a laid back, happy guy who doesn't have a care in the world. Harris came to us from South Carolina, like most of our other foster dogs. I don't know what his story is, but I would guess his last owner didn't provide basic care, hence the mange and the fact that he is bit skinny. But enough about that, Harris isn't bothered by his past so let's move on.

Harris is snugly, huggy, and just wants love. He's a sleeper too. I think he just began his 7th or 8th nap since lunch time. And he's not picky about where he sleeps. The yard, couch, dog bed, or floor all suit him just fine. This is a dog who likes to relax.

Harris is hound/shepherd mix, with a decidedly orange-brown-black coat. He'd make a good mascot for the Flyers, actually. When his fur grows back, he will be quite a handsome guy. He'll also make a good family dog. He's lively but not rambunctious and he wants to please. All he needs is love...
