***RESERVED PENDING HOME CHECK AND MEET & GREET***
FOR ADOPTION IN CORNWALL/DEVON
HARLEY Crossbreed (possible english setter cross)
FRIENDLY GANGLY GOOFBALL HARLEY:
Size: 55cm shoulder height approx
Age: 2yrs approx
Temperament: very friendly, lively and active dog. People devoted and a bit of a goof ball. Very food orientated and he can sniff food out from 'miles away'.
Child friendly: yes, but older children/teens only as he his a strong clumsy dog who is quite large and still needs to learn boundaries
Dog friendly: yes
Cat friendly: currently fostered with cats and all fine
Behaviour/Training needs: his foster mum is working on recall training and other basic commands, but adopters need to expect that Harley will still need basic obedience training. Lead training will also be required as he can be very strong on the lead, especially when excited and eager to go somewhere he loves, eg beach. He has never lived as an only dog and will very likely display separation anxiety if left on his own. Another dog for company, as a play mate and role model would be essential.
Housetrained: yes, but initial accidents due to a new environment can be expected
Bloodtested: before pet travel he tested negative for heartworm, ehrlichia, lyme disease and anaplasmosis, passed his health check in Bosnia and UK
Ideal Home: Harley would love an active home with another playful dog for company, to play with and as a role model. He needs an adequate size and safe enclosed garden. He loves his people and is a real cuddle monster, hence a home with a lot of time, kindness and love to give him would be wonderful.
Hello my name is HARLEY and this is my story.
My life started in Croatia where I lived with a group of dogs like me. They bought me as a puppy and one day I wandered off and escaped. After some adventures I found myself in Bosnia where someone alerted Bojan from the Bark Ark Rescue Shelter who came to collect me. They managed to trace my people from the details on my microchip, but they did not want the hassle or cost to get me back. So I ended up in the shelter... Bojan asked Paws2Freedom if they could help me and they stepped up for me. Suddenly I found myself on more adventures and ended up in the UK.
I have been in the UK now for a few weeks and have been introduced to home life and am now ready to find my forever home. If I may say so myself, handsome I am, fairly large, gangly and goofy. Just a happy and kind dog. They are guessing about my breed and are thinking that I could be an english setter crossed with possibly a spaniel, but can't be sure. Simply put - I am just a very beautiful dog.
If you would like to apply for giving me my forever home, please complete an application form as a first step. But please bear in mind that I am advertized on other sites too and I hope that you understand that there may be more than one application to my name by the time you have completed yours for me.
Please enjoy my photos. They show me after my rescue in Bosnia as well as photos here at Paws2Freedom and in home foster. There are a couple of little videos too where you can see me in action in the UKand on my rescue day.
If you would like to support me and dogs like me a bit I would be ever so grateful. Your donation will help so much and every penny counts. Rescuing dogs like me is a big rescue mission for such a small charity and we can't do it without you. If you could mark your kind giving with ‘Bosnian Dogs’ your funds will be put towards my costs or that of another dog like me.
Thank you so much from my hopeful happy heart and paws ~ Love, Harley ♥
