HANDSOME HARLEY1 HAS A NEW HOME AND FAMILY We got Harley1 in today from Charlotte County. He was turned in by his family who could no longer keep him. He is a sweet male GSD. He weighs about 75 pounds, neutered, healthy, HW Neg and has all shots and a chip. Harley1 is 5 years old and has lived with is former family all of his life. He is extremely people, kid and dog friendly and of course must be introduced appropriately. He was depressed and confused when I got him as he was just dropped off and his life fell apart. When I got him i took him for a day spa afternoon where he had a bath and had his nails done. He loved it. he had some treats and off we went to the foster. At the foster he met 2 dogs, a female GSD who outweighed him and a delightful mix who he immediately took to. He had a great meeting and felt at home in about 5 minutes.
Based on my assessment, I do not have any idea why this handsome, calm boy was dumped, but thankfully he was dumped with a shelter that has some terrific people there who called me to re-home him. Once he hit our door he was a perfect gentleman and totally social. In petting him we did see some hand shyness which is indicative of either a strong handed owner or some rambunctious kids. probably the former. We gave him a meal and he ate very well. He needs to gain 6-7 pounds. He takes treats super gently and he is extremely affectionate. His hand shyness will disappear quickly as he becomes more sure of only love with a hand and not discipline. As of now 9/1/17 in a foster in N Ft Myers until he is adopted.
