Harley has been ready for his forever home for the last 10 months. In Sept 2016 Harley will have been in the program for a year. This handsome fellow has been working hard on his life skills and he is ready to show them off to a lucky family.
Harley is the ultimate cuddle bug and loves to always be close to his people. He is a pretty low energy dog who likes lounging on the couch and resting his head on your lap. He likes to play ball and is learning to bring it back. Harley can be nervous in new situations but given time, he adjusts and if something scares him, he will come to you for comfort and reassurance.
He requires a lot of support and is still working on his confidence but he has made huge progress during his time in foster care and we are confident that he will continue to grow in his forever home.
Harley also came to us with some guarding issues with toys and his food - he learned very quickly that guarding those objects were not necessary and the behaviours are now non-existent, however, his new family must understand that they will need to continue to work on that behaviour so that it does not arise again in the future. He has learned to drop things on command and accept a treat reward for his actions. Harley is good with cats and meeting dogs on walks.
He is good with meeting new people and would be a wonderful addition to a home with the proper experience and patience to work through his challenges.
We are seeking a furever home for Harley with no children & no other animals. A house with a fenced in yard is a must. Must be a quiet, routine home with experience with timid dogs and guarding issues.
