Here is how our Tampa Dog Rehoming Team presented Harper to attract his new family:
Are you a dog lover or dog loving family with room in your heart and home for a very sweet Beagle? Harper is such a wonderful, handsome boy. He loves children and is very “happy-go-lucky”. He would be a great choice for a family with children, or an active retired couple. He loves to snuggle, and is playful, fun, super smart and a great companion.
Harper is the pride and joy of his owner, a young career woman with a very busy work schedule requiring frequent travel. She loves Harper so much, but her job keeps her away from him so much of the time, and he is spending a great deal of time with pet sitters.
As much as she loves Harper, this is a very difficult situation. The costs of hiring pet sitters are frightening, and Harper has no sense of normalcy. His owner worries about his wellbeing when she can’t be with him, and Harper is not getting the love, attention and exercise he needs and very much deserves when left alone, with periodic visits from the pet sitter.
The owner is dearly hoping to find someone wonderful who will take Harper into their heart and home – and love him as much as she has.
The right home will need to have a securely fenced back yard, and owners with plenty of time to spend with Harper. If you would like to offer Harper a loving new home, please get in touch today!

Harper’s Current Home Environment
I am on the go a lot. When I am home, my dogs are either in the room with me or sitting with me. If I am working in my office they will sleep on the couch or on their cots. If someone comes over the dogs will not rest until they make them into a new friend. I have a fenced in back yard and that is where I let the dogs run and use the bathroom. I keep their waste picked up. Since I have two dogs, I usually don’t do a lot of leash walking. They get their exercise in the yard.
I live alone. My dogs are my companions when home. I am on the go a lot so they are alone too much.
Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
I feed my dogs nothing but dog food and treats. I use Natural Balance food and treats to prevent any skin problems. They have nylabone toys only. They cannot have any kind of soft toy or one that is edible or destructible as they will tear it apart quickly and become sick on it. They like running around the yard and just simply being with me wherever I am in the house. Harper loves to play with his toys and will hoard them he loves them so much. He acts like a child at Christmas when you give him a new nylabone toy..it’s very cute.
Harper bows his head when you speak to him kindly..he’s very humble and sweet. He jumps up and down and gets excited at feeding time. I call him Kanga-dog.
Reason New Home Needed?
I travel frequently for my work and I’m leaving them alone all day with periodic visits from a pet sitter. It is very expensive and the dogs are just alone too much.
