Breed American Staffy x Ridgeback
Age 7
Owner Jessica

Hi, I'm Harper. I was the runt of a hunting dog litter but was rescued by Jessica. When she took me in at 4 months old, I was covered in sores and was going to be euthanised by the breeder.

I spent my early years as a fat house dog but, with a bit of training, I've turned into a great companion dog. My jobs include napping, begging for food, guarding the bike and scaring off strangers. On the odd occasion I will catch a rat and herd off a few other feral animals.

My days are spent entertaining my family while they work long hours growing vegetables on our farm. I have free run of the property, and take every opportunity to visit workers during smoko - I don't need a watch to know exactly when it's 9.30!
