Adoption Alert ~ Harvey #2483 - Adoption in Progress

Hi name is Harvey, the miracle boy.  Why am I called ‘the miracle boy’ you ask?  Well, it’s a long story.  You see I’m 10 years old and a while ago I was diagnosed as having cancer.  It was so bad I had to have an operation and the doc said my days were numbered.  I was ready for it.  I had had a good life and hey, when your number is up, your number is up.  Well, I guess my number wasn’t up because I came through the operation with flying colours and my recent tests show I don’t have a trace of cancer anywhere...a miracle indeed.  Now, no one is saying that the cancer won’t come back but the doctors didn’t think I’d make it at all so they’re saying, “We don’t understand but Harvey is amazing!”.  Ah shucks!  Thanks for all your help and I feel great thanks to my amazing foster family and all the good people at Golden Rescue.  I also had a bad ear infection but even that is a thousand percent better.  My ears will still need some ongoing care but considering what I’ve been through, I can handle it if you can.  I know my health is a lot for you to take in.  I get that!  Putting my medical stuff aside, let me tell you about everything else.  My foster mom says I’m sweet, loving, quiet, and pretty much perfect.  Holy cow, that’s a great compliment.  Of course, I have been around the block many times so I know all my commands and I’m amazing on the leash.  I still have lots of energy and love long walks.  I can jump into the car and I can still play with all my doggie friends.  I’m not in love with cats but I sure love everyone else...both canine and human.  I don’t bark much, loud noises don’t bother me, and I’m gentle with treats...and gentle with everything for that matter.  Look, I know I won’t be around forever...but none of us will be.  I know I’m in my ‘golden years’ but I still have a ton of love to give and a ton of gratitude to impart on anyone willing to share my remaining years and hey, I might surprize you all.  I sure surprized my docs.
