The Story of Harley:
We had planned on getting a puppy for a while now and it finally came time to finalize that decision. It was a Saturday morning when we woke up early and decided today is the day. We headed to a Animal Shelter that morning so excited and very hopeful that we would find the right pup. We intended on getting a black or brown Labrador, but we knew our chances would be slim since the shelter only had a few dogs up for adoption.
As soon as we walked in, we headed straight for each and every kennel looking for the perfect one. We turned a corner and found a group of small puppies that had all been rescued from California, while the wildfires were going on. They were brought to this pound in Idaho because no one wanted them anywhere else. Our hearts broke when we heard the story and we were pressed on picking one these puppies.
As soon as we saw Harley I leaned over to Hyrum and said, "this is the one". She was just a frail 5 month old puppy that was sitting there with her eyes wide open and a look of curiosity.
We quickly went back to the front desk, signed the papers and just like, she was ours.
We have had her for about a week now and it has taken her a little time to adjust to the home but now she is confidently leading us wherever she wants to go. She loves the outdoors and we are so excited for all the adventures that we can finally take her on.
We already love her so much and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this now family of three.
Harley is an Australian Shepard Mix with a playful heart and a gentle spirit.
UPDATE: Since writing this post we have lost our sweet Harley due to other circumstances. We know she is in a better place now and we keep this post in memory of her.
