Give a warm welcome to the amazing Harley! This speckled dude is excited to see you! Can you count all those freckles? Neither can we! Harley is about two years old and has many traits of an Australian Cattle Dog...but his bulky physique lends to some American Pit Bull Terrier influence. American and Australian - what a combo! Regardless of what Harley's genes entail, we can assure adopters that he is a "purebred good boy." Harley came to the Kentucky Humane Society when he no longer fit into his family very well. You see, Harley the Heeler likes to herd things...including children! Harley is incredibly clever and active, and his desire to herd is as natural as swimming is to a fish. Unfortunately, his persistence was too overbearing for the little ones in his previous home. As a result, he is looking for a home without kiddos or small animals (cats, ferrets, etc.) that he may be tempted to corral. Harley has enjoyed play wrestling with a similar-sized dog but can be a bit vocal when saying hello. We want him to meet any resident dogs before he goes home to make sure they get off on the right paw! But even if you don't have a canine friend at home, Harley would still love to meet you! He would be a great choice for someone looking for an athletic companion to join them on hikes, long walks, or even figuring out a Rubik's cube. (No promises on that last one, though.) Harley is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on his shots.
I came to the Kentucky Humane Society because my owner could no longer care for me. I miss being in a home and have a lot of love to give.
