Harper & Peaches the Rescue Dogs
Feb 23, 2021

Owners: Ellen Wright Burkholder and George Burkholder

Location: Lancaster, Pa.

Dog Name: Harper and Peaches

Age: 2.5 and 4

Breed: Harper (the bigger dog) is a mixed-breed rescue and Peaches is a rescue Beagle.

In a Word: Quirky

Job Title: Treat testers

Star Quality: They both have the sweetest souls.

Favorite Reward: Carrots

Favorite Getaway: Our backyard deck (we are in a pandemic!)

Forgivable Flaw: Harper loves to hug her people so she jumps on them a lot. With Peaches, it's that loud Beagle howl!

Background Story: Both of our dogs are rescues from the South. Harper was from Texas and we adopted her at 13 weeks old in October 2018. She was our heart healer as we lost 2 beloved pups to cancer weeks apart earlier that year. When the pandemic started, we had some free time on our hands and decided it was a good time to open our hearts and home to another rescue. Peaches was found as a stray in Kentucky. No real idea how old she is but it doesn’t matter!
