Meet Harley, the sweetest, neutered, senior Rat Terrier you would ever want to meet! Unfortunately, his owner was no longer able to care for him and asked for our help to find him a forever home.  At 10 years young, this fellow is calm, housetrained, knows basic commands and has a great temperament. He is not a barker and is friendly with everyone.   He is fine with the other dogs in his foster home but doesn't really play much.  He enjoys just hanging out with his humans so he could be happy as an only dog, too. Do you need a walking buddy?  Harley is currently a bit overweight but with some gentle walks as the days start to cool down he will slim down to a healthier weight!  Harley loves car rides, is great on the leash, uses the doggy door or else will gently scratch at the door to go outside! This guy is a great sleeper and prefers to sleep on the bed with his humans although he may snore a bit from time to time!  He has just received a clean bill of health after having a nice doggy dental and an update on vaccinations.   If you are looking for a laid-back, loving, gentle companion, please consider adopting this wonderful dog.  He will repay you daily with his devotion.

Please complete an application at and his foster mom will be in contact with you.

His adoption fee helps with medical expenses of the rescue.  Thank you!


About Help a Dog Smile

About Our Rescue Group...

Help A Dog Smile is a 501c3 non-profit Arizona corporation and member of PACC911. We are a group of volunteers who all have regular, full time jobs. We are passionate about helping the dogs entrusted to our care and will strive to find the perfect home for each dog. 100% of the funds received goes directly to the medical care of the dogs rescued.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptions can be arranged by appointment or our dogs can be met on Saturdays at Petsmart, 7th Avenue & Bell Road in Phoenix 11am - 4pm.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption is a lifetime commitment. After an application and a verbal interview is completed and it is determined that the adoption is a compatible match, a contract is signed with specific guidelines. A nominal fee (usually between $175-$300) to help off-set medical, feeding and Rescue costs is collected. The contract states that at any time the adoption does not work out, the dog is to be returned to our Rescue group for alternate placement. The dog is not to be 'given away' or 'rehomed' or 'taken to the pound'. If there are other dogs in the home, they must meet prior to adoption. All family members in the household have to agree to the adoption. No dog is to be adopted as a 'gift'. No out of state adoptions.
