Looking for a furry friend who's equal parts adorable, affectionate, and hilariously entertaining? Meet Harold, the 55 lb bundle of cuteness with legs that seem to have missed a growth spurt. His adorable smush face is a genetic mashup of bulldog, staff, and pug, with a hint of "I-don't-know-what," making him a true one-of-a-kind companion.
But here's the twist – Harold's charm isn't just skin deep. His personality matches his heart-melting, goofy looks.Harold's TV habits are a whole entertainment package! Not only is he a pro at Netflix and spooning, but he pays extra careful attention to the TV during the 'Sex and the City' theme song.
When it comes to chew toys, Harold's a bonafide critic, equally passionate about hard bones and cuddly plushies. Your throw blanket? Well, Harold views blankets as contenders in epic tug-of-war showdowns. Thankfully due to his underbite, he's not very destructive. Despite his occasional bouts of mischief, Harold's heart-melting mush face will turn you into a marshmallow in no time.
This stocky sweetheart isn't just a lap dog; he's a full-fledged social butterfly. He effortlessly bonds with his fellow canine companions and would absolutely adore a playmate who's up for some wrestling matches and epic tug-of-war showdowns. Harold holds a special place in the heart of Papaya, a dog-selective dog in our rescue, who finds Harold to be the epitome of an unthreatening playtime companion.
Car rides? Well, Harold has his own special technique. He's a pro at car rides, as long as you're okay with a little heavy lifting. You see, he believes car rides are a team effort, and you're his designated lifter. So if you don’t mind lifting a 55-pound awkwardly shaped, slippery boulder into your car, then car rides with Harold shouldn't be an issue.
When it comes to cats, Harold's feelings are mixed. His extreme underbite makes it almost impossible for him to hurt them, but he certainly enjoys pretending he's the lead detective in a cat caper. He likes to patrol their hideouts even if they are hiding in plain sight. He appreciates that their litter boxes are an endless treat dispenser.
Harold's approach to leash walking is a whole new level of innovation – he prefers the 'pancake sploot,' a move he's sure will catch on any day now. As for potty habits, well, let's just she he would rather use yard time to sun bathe then do his “business”.
But, despite his quirks, he'll win you over with his charmingly goofy underbite and his valiant attempts to jump into your lap. Despite his insane cuteness, Harold needs an adopter with patience and a commitment to training, so he can fully enjoy a lifetime of leisurely park walks and maybe a few less pancake sploots and indoor poops. Think of it as an investment in one hilarious, heartwarming, and slightly offbeat buddy comedy of a lifetime!
