Meet Harley, a 10 month old pure bred liver and white neutered male Brittany. Harley was an owner surrender from an Ohio family without children. His former family were not equipped to put up with his high energy level. Some of their complaints is that he was counter surfing, nipping and aggressive. In the few weeks with our family, Harley has shown much improvement with counter surfing and nipping. He is good with our 6 and 8 year old, but Harley sometimes forgets his own strength. Harley would do great with older kids. Harley is a sweetheart and will thrive in a loving home. Harley is crate trained, house broken and knows many commands such as sit, stay, come, and off. Harley will work for treats and is food motivated. We are working with Harley on his habit of stealing things to get attention and may need more training in that area once adopted. He has improved on that one bad habit quite a bit in the short time we have had him though. Harley is still pulling on his leash during walks, but has shown much improvement. He is very strong so further training with the leash is a must. Harley loves to be with people. We have a lot of land to explore but he usually stays pretty close by. He has bolted out the door a couple of times and has not tried to run away. Harley is also good with other dogs. He has done well at dog parks and with neighbor dogs. Harley loves our kids as well. He listens to them and gets excited to see them when they get home from school. Harley has a lot of energy during the day but as long as he gets a walk in and maybe a round of playing fetch, he will cuddle with you in the evening. He sleeps in his crate and does very well with that. Harley has been seen by a cardiologist for a 2-3 rated heart murmur. The cardiologist has said at this time he is expected to live a normal life with normal amounts of activity and life expectancy. Some routine follow ups are required and medical records will accompany him. Harley would make the perfect addition to an active family willing to put in the time. Harley enjoys going for runs and hikes. Please NO long distance or sight unseen adoptions for this boy. We feel it is important for all family members (Human and Canine) to assure we have a good fit. To be considered please complete an adoption application Update 11/18: Harley came to us un-neutered. He had his surgery on 11/5 and has since settled down quite a bit. Any behaviors that the previous owner may have considered aggressive are now gone since the surgery (typical testosterone related activities.) Addressing the nipping behavior noted by the previous owner, Harley only ‘nips’ when rough housing with adults (never fully biting down) which we find normal as our other Brit did that as well. Harley is being trained on an e-collar and is doing great. His behavior and manners have improved immensely! A fence would be nice but not 100% necessary as he is not a run risk in general. He likes to stay close by his people! Also, as his foster family we feel he is great with our kiddos especially since his surgery and would do great with a family with kids. Harley really has turned out to be such a sweet and cuddly fellow! Harley came to us as an owner surrender. He has been neutered, is up to date on vaccinations, Heart Worm tested negative, on Heart worm preventions and has been microchipped. Calling all families willing to bring out the best in Harley!
