Harley is best described as a teddy-bear both in temperament and size. This 4-yo, 70lb overweight GSD-BlackBear is about as sweet a dog as you could ask for and is not made of any tough stuff at all. Harley's ideal day is following around his people and taking advantage of any opportunity to cuddle and give lots of kisses. Even though he's an adult, Harley has just started learning about the world and would love someone he trusts to gently show it to him. He's very smart, loves toys and treats and is eager to learn new things to please his people. With some time, he does well living with larger dogs, teenagers, and men, but really loves the ladies! In foster care he has been learning to walk on leash, sit for treats, eat more slowly (and what a diet is!), ride in the car, as well as working on his housebreaking and crate training. Harley would do best with a work from home parent or to hang out in a quiet office. He gets quickly overwhelmed by small children but is currently learning about quiet teenagers. He has not been cat-tested. All this huge, fluffy, goofy, shy bear needs is a forever home and some quiet adventures with you!
