Harley is now ready for adoption!

Just look at our girl Harley – an attractive,  Hound/Lab cross, white with tan,  three years old, weighing in at 50 lbs. Harley was surrendered to the shelter after she fell through a glass window and was taken to a vet. The owner’s would not  invest in her recovery and wanted her euthanized. The vet called UCHS  and we agreed to pay for her surgery through **Trooper’s Fund** and oversee her recovery.  She has spent the last two months recuperating with us and is now ready to find that special home of her own.

The plus here is that we really know Harley; she is extremely affectionate with “her” trusted staff and volunteers but  we discovered that she suffers from  some separation anxiety when left alone so would be suited to a detached home situation

Harley does not present well on first introduction to strangers, she is rather boisterous, jumping and posturing, therefore a family willing to invest in further training to build her confidence would be the right fit.

Harley would suit an active adult family or one with children older than 10 years; she is fine with large dogs, but does not like small or aggressive ones and dislikes cats. Harley has her basic commands, is housebroken, possesses high energy which makes her extremely energetic, but the calming influence of a Gentle Leader halter ensures that walks are enjoyable. A fenced yard is a MUST, as she possesses “the nose to the ground” hound behavior and a scented trail might lead her far from home.

Harley has so many pluses once she trusts you, she will beg for cuddles, takes treats gently, sits on your lap to get closer for those snuggles, has so much love to give.   Harley’s gentleness was demonstrated constantly when she let staff treat her open wounds with no aggression or reaction.

Harley needs an especially loving, patient family willing to help her fine-tune her negatives and celebrate her positives. If you feel Harley is a good fit for your family, please call the shelter at 519-833 2287 or email info@uppercredit.com to come and meet this intriguing lady.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to Trooper’s Fund in Harley’s name to help the next animal with special medical requirements, please contact the shelter.
