HARLEY - Needs experienced owner
Available in the Washington, DC area (within a 2.5 hour radius)
Gender: male neutered
Age: 6 years old (born 1/3/2012)
Size: large - 95 pounds. Harley is a tall boy.
Breed: Labrador Retriever
Energy level: high energy - needs an active family willing to provide him with plenty of exercise. Currently getting about 4 to 5 miles a day. * Harley is getting 2 long walk/runs daily of about 2 to 3 miles each time. He would love to go to a home with a runner. A home on the water or a home with a pool would also suit him just fine as he loves water and loves to swim.
Vetting completed before adoption : combo vaccine, Rabies vaccine, Bordatella, Lyme vaccine x 2, Lepto vaccine, neuter, heart worm negative, monthly preventatives, micro-chip
Vetting that will need to be done after adoption by the new owner: monthly preventaties
Heartworm status: negative
House & crate trained: yes to both. Harley is fairly trustworthy when he is not crated when no one is home but the house has to be be "dog proofed" especially counters. Harley is a counter surfer. ** This is provided that Harley gets the exercise that he needs. If he doesn't he may "make his own fun" when no one is home.
Good with dogs: best as an only dog. Harley is a resource guarder around other dogs and while he has gotten much better since he has been in foster care with our rescue, he has a better chance of being successful in his new home if he didn't have to share - food, toys, attention, etc. Harley was not well-socialized as a puppy unfortunately and he can be quite jealous.
Good with cats: NO!
Good with children: older, sturdier children because he's a big boy and can be quite energetic in the house. He will also use his mouth/teeth when he gets excited and trying to play. 12+ please with no plans to have any additional children in the future.
Adoption fee: $350
Other: Harley knows several basic commands and walks well on the leash. He walks better when being walked alone. If there is another dog along he will speed up and try to compete. He also has a high prey drive so attention needs to be paid to critters on walks (deer, squirrels, rabbits, etc.) Harley would be a really good indoor guard dog. He alerts on unusual things and his bark can be quite loud and intimidating. He would not be good for apartment or shared wall living situations. He needs to go to a home with a stand-alone house and a physically fenced yard. He doesn't self-exercise so the yard doesn't have to be that big but he could not be trusted with underground or electric fences.
Harley is a very loyal and loving dog and he is very people oriented.
