Hi! My name is Harley. What’s your name? I’m a 2-year-old black Lab/Rottweiler-mix. I like you. Do you like me? Would you like a kiss? Did you see the squirrel?

I was picked up by Kane County Animal Control running with another dog. My buddy’s owner came and got him, but nobody came for me.

Can you tell I have a lot of energy? The staff at KCAC tell me I don’t know my own strength, so it might be good if you have owned larger dogs before.

I like other dogs. I like to play. Would you like to play with me? Do you have a large field or yard for me to play in? That would be the best! If you already have a dog, that would be the best of the best! We can run like the wind through the yard. I’ll try not to bowl them over. Hey … squirrel!

I like to snuggle and I’ll put my head on your lap. We can watch TV together when we’re really, really tired.

Can you take me to training? I’ll need a lot of training.

I like you so much already. Let’s go! Life awaits!
