About Harley

Hdb approved, Harley is about 9kg. Ive had him since he was a puppy. He is now 5+ years old- DOB Sept 2012. Paper and pee pad trained but will need a baby gate to cordon him off while everyone is out.
He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated (next one due on 27.03.18) and licensed (which will be transferred valid till Dec 2018).
No health problems, only a sprained foreleg now and then (common with long body dogs running up and down stairs)
Harley can get excitable, especially when he meets new people and he barks a lot. However once he calms down (we give him a biscuit when guests arrive) he is sweet and affectionate. We also cordon him off from guests for 5 minutes when they are arrive just so he calms down before we introduce them to him.
Harley needs a firm hand to bring the best out of him, as he is excitable. Unfortunately I’m the only one at home who is strict with him and I cannot deal with him all the time due to work and taking care of a toddler. This, and the fact I feel he isn’t getting enough attention, is the reason he is up for adoption.
Harley doesn’t need much exercise. He gets tired after 10 minutes of walking. He doesn’t like strangers, and will growl and bark at some of them whilst on walks. Currently he needs to be on a choke chain lead (as he pulls on harness too much) and walked in heel position. He has been to lessons and knows what he should do he just gets too excited. We also use a bark collar with him but with limited success - if he really wants to bark it wont deter him.
He loves playing with balls, being tickled and going for short walks and eating biscuits. He will sit when ordered to prior to taking the biscuit. All things considered, Harley is most suitable for families, living in an apartment with no other dogs or cats and grown up kids.
We are not charging adoption fees; just a $50 donation to SPCA will suffice. We are extremely sad to be putting Harley up for adoption so we just want to make sure he finds the best suitable home so will be meeting with all potential adopters in person. Email Jess at [email protected] to arrange to meet up in the east (506894).
Reason for giving up: Harley needs a firm hand to bring the best out of him, as he is excitable. Unfortunately Im the only one at home who is strict with him and I cannot deal with him all the time due to work and taking care of a toddler. This, and the fact I feel he isnt getting enough attention, is the reason he is up for adoption.
