Hermione (known as Harper in her foster home) is very sweet, smart, friendly and affectionate. She absolutely loves belly rubs! She bonded quickly with her foster mom and is never far from her side when she’s home. Hermione is an energetic girl who loves to play, and will either need an active family who will give her plenty of exercise, or a home with a playful canine companion. She comes on strong with other dogs, so a mellow male may be the best match for Hermione, and she definitely needs a slow and easy introduction. Her energy level may be too much for younger children, and she has shown some apprehension with sudden movements, so only older kids for Hermione! She is learning to walk nicely on leash, but those pesky squirrels MUST be chased off, so adopters must be strong and prepared to rein her in! She is a wonderful passenger in the car, nary a peep from her. A smart girl, Hermione will thrive in a family which will continue to work with and train her. Hermione is not a fan of being crated and if she can’t be with her people, a baby gate across the door of the family room works better for her. The southern shelter that sent this sweet girl to Peppertree said she’s good with dogs and we think she’d do well in a home with another dog. She is too interested in cats to live with them. Hermione has been treated for heartworms, and she will be rechecked at Peppertree’s expense to make sure those pesky buggers are gone from her system.

See Hermione’s appearance on Pet Connection! Steve calls her Harper, since that’s the name she is used to in her foster home.
