This big brute is Harley!
Harley is believed to be an 8 year old Pitbull/Mastiff mix. He spent his entire life with just one owner and when he was surrendered to the shelter, he was crushed. As a result, Harley has developed separation anxiety. He is very distressed unless someone is present with him at all times. He can often be found in tow of his favorite human.
Unfortunately, the shelter staff are not able to spend the entire day at the shelter with Harley, so he has been put on an extensive list of medications in an attempt to calm his nerves. The shelter can be a very stressful place for an animal. It’s important that Harley gets a home as quickly as possible. They believe he would settle in, once he’s gotten accustomed to his new home and wouldn’t need to continue his medication.
Harley is the biggest love bug you’ve ever seen, quite literally! This brute weighs almost 90 pounds, but wouldn’t hurt a fly. As long as he’s in your presence, he’s quiet and content. He loves to put his paws in your lap and just let you snuggle him. Harley would greatly benefit from somebody who works from home where he can spend the day in your company.
Harley is in such a miserable state, currently. Despite all of his medication, he still cries incessantly until he’s covered himself in drool. It’s heartbreaking to watch him continue to cry and hurt himself along the kennel doors. It’s important, for Harley’s sake, that he finds his one and only who will love him and house him until the end of his days
Harley has not been kid/cat/dog tested.
