I'm looking for a new home...

About Harvey

2 to 5 Years


Harvey is a complex boy who is looking for an experienced home with a family who enjoys positive reward based training. He had to stay with a family member after his owner had a small accident and his anxiety seemed heightened when he returned. Meeting new people whilst in our care had been difficult for Harv but he has improved greatly with encouragement from his carers. He is still going to need lots of time and patience from his new family though, and needs to build positive associations with lots of things. He has a huge range of commands that he knows, and seems to enjoy learning. Harvey is very switched on and would love to find adopters that will continue to keep him stimulated. He LOVES agility!

Type of home needed

Harvey can be very unpredictable and he does guard things at times. He has reacted negatively when being disturbed, towards fast moving things and when being stroked, among other situations. He can be very conflicted and will even react differently in very similar circumstances. His body language can be very subtle at times, which is why he needs experienced owners. Harvey's tolerance of being handled has improved a lot and he'll let us groom him, but he needs to be muzzled at this time. His confidence around dogs has grown since his arrival, and Harvey now happily walks with some, but he doesn't enjoy any actual intercation. He needs a strictly ADULT ONLY HOME. Harvey can often by very vocal, and it's difficult to ignore!

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Merseyside Rehoming Centre in Liverpool.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
