Abby Schulte has been with her boyfriend Ethan for the last two years. The couple are extremely happy together. Abby adopted a rescue dog called Harvey last year (named after Hurricane Harvey), as it turns out she would have to keep her significant other and the keep the pup apart.
Abby told The Dodo.”Harvey is terrified of people when I first had him, he would not let anyone else near him except for me.”
It becomes more transparent why it no longer becomes a concern when it comes to Ethan. In fact, far from it.
Days after Harvey was adopted, once he had time to settle in her home.
The time was right for Abbey to invite Ethan over to attempt to introduce him to Harvey.
Rather than cower or bark in fear, it was an immediate connection once the dog first met Abby’s boyfriend Ethan. Equally, his feelings were mutual towards Harvey.
She mentioned to us:
“It was crazy to see how much they enjoyed each other’s company.”
Then continues to say:
I’m not sure why they hit it off so quickly, but I like to think it’s because Harvey is a good judge of character. Harvey was immediately 100 percent comfortable with him” commented Abbey.
Harvey is still cautious around strangers.However, since that first introduction, Ethan remains one of the dog’s favorite people. Harvey jumps with ecstatically whenever Ethan comes over to chill out with Abby,
Abby said. “They are always so affectionate, Harvey loves to cuddle and will always cuddle with Ethan. I think my dog now loves him more than he loves me!”
There are times when Abbey feels a little bit like the third person but she is thrilled that her boyfriend and dog get along so well!! In fact, recently she captured a video of Harvey stealing a kiss from Ethan right under her nose.

Abbey takes it all in her stride as she sees the loving bond Harvey has with nurtured with Ethan
Abbey Admits “Sometimes I do feel a bit jealous of how much he loves Ethan, “but I know Harvey loves me just as much, so I always get over it.”
The best part of is that both Abby and Ethan love Harvey back.
The best part of sharing this with the world is having that Harvey now has two people in his life who love him greatly and have shown Harvey that it’s good for him to be his warmhearted and sweet self.
Abby finally adds: “He has completely changed. He has opened up so much. He is so much more confident in himself and won’t freak out when someone reaches out to pet him.”
