Harlow 06/27

Meet Harlow, a 6-year old American Shelter Dog. Harlow came to us as a stray, so we don’t know everything about her past. We have learned that she is a very intelligent girl who already knows how to “sit” and is eager to learn new commands and tricks. She loves getting playtime, especially with squeaky or rope toys, and is always ready for a lengthy walk with her family. Harlow would be happy to share a new home with some other dogs and active children, though she would prefer not to live with cats. If this fun-loving gal sounds like the dog for you, then stop on by the shelter today to meet Harlow.

The Animal Welfare Society is fortunate to have volunteers who take adoptable dogs through the obedience classes.  They also spend quality time, playing with, walking, and running the dogs. Here’s what some volunteers had to say about Harlow:

“I asked Harlow to go with me to Saturday’s Adoption Fair at the Aubuchon Hardware in Wells, Maine. She took one second to decide and said “yes”, showing her approval with a wagging tail. I hooked the leash on her, and she was so happy that her tail was wagging, literally from one side of her kennel to the other. I followed that wagging tail to my car and when she realized we were actually going for a ride, she smiled and her tail was really wagging. She happily jumped into the crate in my car and couldn’t wait to leave, so her tail was still wagging. We arrived at Aubuchon Hardware, she saw people and activity, and her tail was wagging. What could be more fun than walk around to meet people and show how much you like them by wagging your tail?  To Harlow, a polite introduction, the occasional sloppy kiss with a wagging tail had to be the ultimate fun way to spend time among people. After almost two hours of greeting everyone with a wagging tail, we decided to head back to the shelter. By now she was so tired that her tail was not wagging, she rested and tried to sleep. When we arrived at the shelter, however, she realized that she was back at her temporary home, her tail was once again wagging. We went back into her kennel with a wagging tail, hoping that someone would realize that a dog with a wagging tail, sloppy kisses and adoring brown eyes can make a true dedicated and loving companion. I realized that attached to that wagging tail was a dog with a personality that does not judge you and sees only good in people and thrives to make them happy.  Please say Hello and give Harlow a reason to keep her tail wagging, a smile is all it takes and you will also be hooked by that wagging tail.” Malte
