Harley is a very handsome Labrador cross that was surrendered by his owner when was moving into a small apartment and couldn’t bring him along. He was brought to the BC SPCA Nelson Branch in March and has been ever so patiently awaiting his forever home.
Being so young and of a larger size Harley will require not only lots of exercise, but space to move about in. At first Harley was having some issues with other males at the shelter, but once he was neutered it’s rarely been a problem. Proper introduction and becoming familiar with your new furry friend will also greatly decrease any problems that could pop up.
Although Harley is so big, he’s still a puppy at heart. His breeding makes him an excellent learner and he picks up new tricks and commands very easily. Exercising your pet first will also help when training as they have calmed down significantly once tired. Harley is already well ahead of the game; he knows all his basic commands and is quickly learning more.
Harley shows great respect for cats and could very well live with one or more, as well as other dogs too. On certain foods Harley has had a bit of a sensitive stomach, but a staff or volunteer at the Nelson branch could give more insight into that.
