Harpo and Zeppo need a patient and caring family to offer them support whilst they settle into a new home environment. They need a secure garden and careful exit management, with no doors or gates left open, as with all terriers. Harpo and Zeppo are a harmonious couple but need a family who understands ‘two dog chemistry’. Zeppo needs management around off-lead dogs as he gets flustered if rushed. Harpo suffers from weepy eyes and needs periodic treatment. Harpo and Zeppo could live with another dog and are proven with cats.
Harpo and Zeppo’s start in life was neglectful; they lived in squalor in a back garden and neighbours reported their situation to the dog warden. Their former owners are now being prosecuted. Harpo and Zeppo have been in foster since their arrival in early summer 2013. They are neutered, chipped and vaccinated. Harpo and Zeppo are fostered with another foster dog, and were with a dominant cat, in Kingston upon Thames.
Harpo and Zeppo are Marx brothers whose humorous natures will have you in stitches. They are mutually reliant on one another and need to stay together. They may have very rare accidents in the house when due care and attention isn’t applied or they are stressed. Harpo and Zeppo now welcome human approaches and show just how loving they are; Harpo is a tad nervous with new people. They enjoy the best quality food. They are a delightful duo.
Harpo and Zeppo may be Jack Russell Terrier crosses and are around four years old. They are both 12″ to the shoulder and just six kilograms in weight. They have Border Terrier-like coats. Harpo’s coat is red grizzle and Zeppo’s red grizzle with a black muzzle. Each has his unique character and both are extremely loving and tolerant of each other’s needs. They enjoy walks out on the streets and parks, and have adjusted well with exposure to new experiences. They are a wonderful pair who promise to reward any family with a rescue heart.
