Harvey is loyal, affectionate, resilient and quick to learn. He will follow you to the end of the earth and brighten your day with his bright and happy demeanour.
He enjoys human company, chasing balls, fresh meat, the company of other friendly dogs and having an area where he is allowed to do a little digging.
After a rough start being rough housed, stepped on and woken abruptly when sleeping, Harvey has come a long way. He tends to be timid, sweet and accommodating unless pushed too far and then, like most dogs, may react in protest.
Harvey has lived with a toddler without incident for years but as he can be defensive around food and does not like being startled we recommend he does not live with kids.
Like most dogs Harvey does not like anything rough or forceful.
