AGE: Harold is a very handsome, 2-year-old, 70-pount mastiff with a soulful face that is hard to resist.

PERSONALITY: This nice boy is most comfortable with a female owner without kids. He is calm and gentle and is crate-trained to keep him out of trouble when you’re not home.

HIGHLIGHTS: Harold loves walks (still needs a little training), car rides and playing with other young dogs his size. He lives nicely with other large dogs and dog-friendly cats, but will chase livestock and squirrels.
