07/24/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I’m never quite sure how it happens, or when it happens, or what triggers it, but some dogs just have a way of wiggling their way into my heart without me even noticing it. Harley is that type of dog. She may not do anything outstanding, but after a few times walking her I knew I’d developed a soft spot for her. Sure, she seems housebroken, walks easily on the leash and always seems happy to see you. But what sets her apart is the way that she tenderly looks at me, her body language always soft, and her facial expressions are so sweet. She aims to please, sitting and giving paw on command and when you give her a plushy she is so gentle playing with it, satisfied with her new toy but determined not to hurt it. She will lay down for belly rubs and takes treats ever so gently. Weighing in at only about 45 pounds Harley is small, her legs are short and her body is squat but the impact she makes on your heart is ginormous. Ask to meet her today!

Harley was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Harley was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Harley appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter. Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body.
