Personality: Harrison is a lovey goober. Just check out the video below! Despite finder reports of aggressive behavior, we have seen nothing but Harrison's sweet side since arriving. He does have some unresolved medical that could be affecting behavior and is in urgent need of rescue for ophthalmology evaluation. While he waits, he's been ecstatically accepting all forms of pets and rubs and wrestles.
Harrison loves people:
