Meet Harlow...This sweet boy is an approximately 4-year-old golden retriever who came to us all the way from Turkey.  He has been settling in at his foster home over the past few weeks and is now ready to find his forever home!

Harlow is a very sweet and mellow boy.   He is happy to relax around the house and watch what his people are doing around him.  It is hard to walk past Harlow and not stop to pet him and show him some love.  He has the sweetest face and beautiful long fur.  He loves when you get down on the floor to give him love and he will roll over so you can admire his beautiful long belly fur in hopes that you will stay a while and rub his belly!

Harlow lights up when he sees his leash and is always ready for a walk.  He is wonderful on his leash and never pulls, just trots alongside you.  He likes to take his time on his walks to enjoy all the smells, so he would be a great fit for someone looking for a companion for daily leisurely walks.  Harlow is happy to relax most of the day so giving him plenty of walks is important to keep him active.  Harlow is being fostered with another dog, and they play every day.  Harlow would enjoy having another dog in the home but would also be happy being the only dog and getting all the love with some regular playdates to socialize and play with other doggies.

Harlow absolutely loves being outside and is oftentimes found lounging in the sun with his toys.  He enjoys rolling around in his grassy yard, so a good-sized yard with grass is a must for this handsome boy.  He is always up to chase a ball, but when he’s done he will happily chew on the ball and keep himself busy.  Harlow lives with 2 teens but he’s been around all kids big and small and is very gentle with everyone he meets.  He would be great in a home with kids 5 years and older.  Harlow is the biggest cuddle bug, so it’s a must that his forever family wants a big, cuddly teddy bear.

Harlow has been a wonderful house guest but has a hard time resisting a sock that may be laying on the ground… every dog has their weakness!  Luckily he’s the best boy, and If he does pick one up you can easily exchange it for a toy. Harlow is an all-around happy doggie who is up for any adventure, including walks on the beach!  He gets very excited for his beach fun, but so far has had no interest in going in the water.  He loves being included in family car rides and lays nicely in the back excited to reach his destination.

Harlow is a very special boy who can’t wait to find his special family.  If you feel you have all the things Harlow is looking for in his forever home, are prepared to give tons of belly rubs and lots of walks, please fill out our adoption application here: Adoption Application
