Harvey, a Lab/Dachshund mix, was found stray in Whittier, CA.  He was hungry and exhausted and decided to rest under the rose bushes in front of a house on a quiet street.  When the homeowner returned from shopping, she found Harvey waiting for her.  His wagging tail and soulful eyes touch her heart.  She gave him water and food.  He had no collar or tags, so she took him to her vet and had him scanned for a microchip.  Nothing.  Then she walked him around the neighborhood asking everyone she met if they knew who he was or where he lived. No success.  She would have kept him at her home and continued to look for his people, but her own little dog took great exception to Harvey’s presence, so she contacted SCDR and we agreed to take him into our program.  

You absolutely cannot believe how wonderful Harvey is. Harvey has the best of both worlds – the calm demeanor and temperament of Lab with the smaller stature of the Dachshund. Harvey would be perfect for condo or apartment dwellers that fancy the Lab breed, but need a smaller dog to comply with residential restrictions.  With some training, he’d make a fabulous “therapy dog”.
