Spayed or Neutered,
Hi! I am Harley, a two-three year old girl. I came from Valencia county shelter in Los Lunas, New Mexico, and am learning all kinds of new things here now that I live in a house. I have learned that pee goes outside and I am very good at that. My foster mom calls that housebreaking but I would never break anything in the house.
I love other dogs, kids and humans of every persuasion. But I have never met a cat. I like to chase lizards so does that mean I would like to chase cats?? I don’t know. FM’s other rescues have been able to be taught to live nicely with kitties but no guarantees from me.
I am very nicely behaved in the house and have quickly grown to love snoozing on the couch or lying on the cold tile when I am hot. I sit now and take treats gently. I zoom into my box (crate) when mom says, “go to your box”. I usually get a cookie paycheck for that.
At night, I sleep in the bedroom with my FM and brothers and sisters. All six of us get on the bed for nighttime cuddles. I start out on mom’s bed, and I like to set my head on her shoulder. When I get hot or tired of my mom’s tossing, I move to a bed on the floor. I like to sleep in a bit in the morning if I can but I am also great at rise and shine at 5:30 am. Then it’s outside for my constitutional, some running, lizard watching, and sniffing. We like back I bed for morning cuddles too, if there is time. Then breakfast!
Breakfast, the mostest bestest time ever! I get two cups of kibble a day, and many days, some goodies like Kefir, cottage cheese, milk thistle, salmon oil, blueberries, watermelon, green beans or whatever FM has in the fridge. I LOVE my food but I sit until FM sets it down and says okay before I get up to eat. I am a lady and ladies have manners.
I know how to do some smart stuff. I know sit, lie down, come, go to your box, leave it, get it, give me a kiss, hush, gentle, and a few more, but, according to my FM, I am pretty bad at stay. We are working on it but at this moment, I think stay means get to FM as fast as I can go.
My FM has taught me inside manners but I still need work on my outside manners. I think going to dog school would be fun- anything I get to do with you would be fun! And at school I could learn to walk calmly on a leash.
I need exercise as any young dog does. You can throw my ball or take me out for a walkabout. I like to chase my foster brother around the yard and play the chew and bite game when we wrestle and run around.
Some boring stuff. I am spayed and UTD on vaccines. I am heartworm negative and have my very own microchip. I am healthy and happy and want my very own family to go with my microchip. I will be a good girl, promise.
I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. My adoption fee is $400.00 to cover all my medical expenses. Please call me but ask to talk to my FM, Lyn.
