Name: Harley Animal ID: A574788

Breed: American Staff mix

Gender:  Female Approximate age: 2 years Weight: 30.5 pounds

Harley is a sweet and affectionate gal who was recently fostered by a staff member at Harris County Pets. The foster stated the following about Harley: “She loves men, women, children and other dogs. She is pretty good on a leash and loves sniffing and tracking scents.

She will sleep on your lap for hours if undisturbed. She loves children and was not overwhelmed by children running around her. She is house-trained and had no accidents. She does have some separation anxiety, so it would be best if someone can be with her most of the day. She is good with other dogs and shows good play etiquette. [Harley] … needs a yard or at least one to two walks daily.” Harley is available for adoption. Caring citizens have pledged $250 towards her fast-kill heartworm treatment at the Harris County Pets Clinic.
