HarperPointer / Mixed (short coat) • Female • Adult
Meet Harper. This poor girl was recently rescued from deplorable conditions along with two other dogs. Harper and the others were chained up in a yard and severely neglected. Their owner had died and they were just left without any food, water or anything else. BARC was called and picked up all three. Once at the shelter, it was likely that they would never make it to the adoption wing since they were in just too poor of shape. One of the three was pulled by another rescue, but Harper and the other dog (Hudson) were left. Once we saw how bad they looked we knew we had to help.
We went and got them and had them evaluated by our vet. Of course they had worms and parasites. Their skin was in bad shape too, especially Harper, who has virtually no hair and was scratching herself until she bled. Upon examination, we also noticed that she has almost no teeth. They have likely been worn down due to chewing on rocks and the chain. Despite all she's been through, Harper is very sweet!
Harper is doing amazing and in a fabulous foster home. She is very loving and has come out of her shell. Harper is a Pointer mix and now weighs about 50 pounds. She is great with other dogs and has great house manners. She is so calm and well-behaved.
She has gone literally from rags to riches and we want to find the most awesome forever home where she can be treated like a princess. Please consider giving this darling girl a forever home! www.scoutshonor.org
