Arrival Story: Harper is a beautiful purebred Australian Cattle Dog who was found as a stray and taken to a crowded shelter in West Virginia. Her person was located and called and begged the shelter to hold on to Harper. They waited. And waited. And waited. But no one ever came to claim this wonderful dog.
Rogers’ Rescues transported Harper north and we are lucky to have her because she is a loving and loyal companion who is going to bring years of joy to a forever family.
Bio: Harper is living in a house with 5 other dogs and she enjoys all of them. She plays with them (especially the other ACD in the house) and likes to run and chase when it’s play time. She will fetch a ball outside or happily jump up for a tossed ball in the house. She doesn’t demand you play with her, but she’s happy when you do.
Prior to coming to her current foster home, Harper spent 2 weeks in a foster home with a cat and was just fine. She even liked to sit and watch the hamster run around in his cage.
Being a herding dog, Harper takes a few days to warm up to new people. But when she does, her people become her best friends. She gives kisses and loves to cuddle or just hang around with you.
Harper is middle aged but you would never know it. (Maybe 6 is the new 3 in dog years!) She jumps for balls and keeps up with dogs half her age. The only outward sign that she’s not as young as she feels is the few extra pounds she is having some trouble shedding. Consistent exercise and a good diet should help her with that.
Harper is a smart, friendly and sweet dog with lots of love to give for years to come. If you are looking for a loyal companion, please consider meeting Harper. She is being fostered in Langhorne, PA.
