More About Me
Harley is a loving, loyal and playful dog. He will benefit with a firm but kind owner. Harley does not need to be the only permanent dog in the home however, as he has been unpredictable a few times with certain breeds/small dogs we recommend caution.
Harley is ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as he is a central focus when people are home.
As Harley is people orientated he needs to be part of family activities.
He will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Medium - playful and moderately active and needs at least one walk a day. Once a day he will enjoy playing at home with rope toys and tug toys and will then chill out for the rest of the day.

Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Harley likes attention, affection and walks. He dislikes small flat faced dogs e.g pugs and reacts to the anxiety of his current owner who is not confident with Harley. He will thrive with a calm, consistent owner who is firm but kind and has a consistent routine. Dogs like Harley get anxious when owners fuss over or 'molly coddle' their dogs.
