A Tripawd Rescue Alert, Meet Harper in Dallas, Texas

This is Harper she was found as a stray in Dallas in March 2023 & landed a foster home where she has been loving life. We adore me & are sad that she after 4 months in a foster home she still hasn’t found a home.

She is 1.5 year old, 35 lb Cattle Dog / German Shepherd mix. She is heartworm neg, up to date on my shots, & overall healthy! She is potty trained, crate trained, and knows several tricks.

You’re probably wondering what happened to her leg! Well, we have no idea. She came into the shelter as a tripod. It definitely does not inhibit her at all! She is quite athletic & will shock you with my high jumps & how fast I can run.

She’s an active Tripawd!

Her personality is allllll Heeler. Heelers may not be easy, but they’re loyal, smart, & fun! She has strong herding instincts (watch out lawn mower & roomba!), high energy, & is mouthy.

She loves playing with other dogs & would love a home with a fur sibling or two! She does have “stranger danger” & has a hard time meeting new people. Out of fear & stress, she barks & is reactive towards strangers. Maybe it’s related to some trauma or maybe she wasn’t socialized enough as a puppy.

Once she is comfortable with someone, she will become their best friend! It just takes several minutes, patience, & a lot of treats. She has been in training for this and her adopters will need to continue working with her.
