HARVEY from Merseyside (Liverpool)

So we were looking for a medium mongrel bitch not a puppy...we were gazumped on 3 dogs then hubby went on his own on a quiet Tuesday morning...there he was. Harvey. The look melted the owner to be and all the criteria we had agreed disappeared...home came the black Labrador pedigree dog who was still a pup. Chaos reigned for several weeks but Dogs Trust were right, persevere and by Christmas you will have a lovely dog who will be part of the family and they were right. He has chewed endlessly, munched his way through mountains of treats, managed to get good reports at Puppy training, and basically is now central to our life at home. Needed investment in time and love but despite a rocky start, with support from Dogs Trust and Puppy training we would not change him for the world now,
