The Harrier dog is a purebred who is part of the hound group. They are known to be outgoing, friendly, and people-oriented. So, if you’re looking for a family companion dog, then look no further. There’s a lot to love about Harrier puppies, so to learn more, keep on reading.

Where To Get Harrier Puppies

Luckily, you can find this dog breed anywhere you can adopt dogs. First, it’s best to call your local animal shelter or a rescue organization. These dogs are often found as strays or were abandoned or surrendered by their previous owners. You might not find a Harrier puppy, but you could save a dog’s life. For instance, you might find a Harrier adult or senior or a mixed breed with Harrier genes.

However, if you have your heart set on getting a Gordon Setter puppy, you can research reputable breeders. These breeders will do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Keep the dogs in their own home, treating them like family
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date on their vaccinations
  • Won’t let the puppies go home until they are at least eight weeks of age
  • Health screen and genetically test the parents before breeding and then test the puppies after birth

In addition, the breeder will be able to answer all of your questions regarding the breeder, the breed itself, the litter, the parents, or the process as a whole. Also, they may be licensed or registered with the American Kennel Club or another breed club.

If you find a breeder that doesn’t do the above, then you might have come across a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. These breeders should be avoided since they only care about making a profit. They don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions and don’t care about finding the dogs good homes.

The Cost

Harriers are a popular dog breed, so you can expect to spend anywhere between $1,500 and $2,500. However, the price may vary depending on the location of where you adopt the dog, the breeder’s experience, the dog’s lineage, and how high in demand the dog is at that time.

Appearance

Harriers puppies will grow to stand between 19 and 21 inches tall, weighing 45 and 60 pounds. Also, they have a short double coat that can come in a few colors. For instance, you may see a Harrier that’s the following:

  • Black, White, & Tan
  • Lemon & White
  • Red & White

Temperament

This doggo is described to be friendly and with good reason. They’re affectionate with their family members and are extremely loyal. Also, they’re excellent with young children, meeting other dogs, and meeting strangers. Unfortunately, harriers love to be around people, which also causes them to get separation anxiety.

In addition, this doggo loves to bark. Whether they want to hear themselves talk, get your attention, or alert you of something, you can be sure this pooch will be vocal a lot. They’re adaptable and can live in any situation, but an apartment might not be the best idea.

Aside from the barking, they’re also high-energy dogs. So, keeping your Harrier in a bigger home with a fenced-in yard will be ideal. They’ll need plenty of physical activity every day. For instance, they’ll love doing things with you. So, if you go on a hike, you can be sure that your Harrier dog will want to tag along.

Harrier Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Harriers have an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years. So with proper care, you can live a long, happy, and healthy life with them.

So, for the first year, be sure to bring your doggo to the vet often. You can track their growth and development, keeping them up to date on their shots. Then, for each year after that, unless they’re feeling under the weather, you can bring your doggo to the vet once a year for their annual check-up.

However, there are some health issues that Harriers are prone to. For example, they can get hip dysplasia or eye problems. Otherwise, they’re relatively healthy.

Diet

With your vet’s approval, you can feed your Harrier dog just about anything high-quality and dog-safe. For instance, they’ll do well with high-quality kibble or canned wet dog food from commercial dog food brands. On the other hand, you can also make your pooch a homemade dog food recipe.

Every dog is different, so you’ll be able to give them what they need. Also, since they have high energy levels, a diet rich in protein may be a good idea for them.

Grooming

Luckily, you won’t need to worry about grooming this pooch too much. They’ll only need a bath as needed or if they get into something they weren’t supposed to. They do, however, shed a decent amount. So, you’ll want to brush their fur weekly.

Other than that, be sure you keep their nails trimmed, ears clean, and teeth brushed.
