Harley-Quinn needs a home

Harley-Quinn is a 2-year-old spayed tan and white blend of Chinese Shar-Pei, terrier and American pit bull.

Calling all bully lovers, I am Harley-Quinn,

I am currently lucky enough to be residing in a lovely foster home. During the day I hang out in the business office at the Allen County SPCA.

I was brought in by a lady who said I was abandoned on her property. Who could do that to me? I am an awesome girl! I was heartworm positive when I came into the shelter but I did have my treatment and have recovered extremely well.

Although I have heard people say I am not the prettiest dog they have ever seen, I hear them secretly whisper that I have an awesome personality! I do extremely well on my housebreaking and have not had an accident in my foster home! I also have free roam of the home while my foster mom is out and also at night time. This is great for me because during the night I try to snuggle my way into her bed! Sometimes I get kicked out because I am quite the bed hog and can make a lot of noise with my snoring!

I will require daily exercise, I am used to my foster mom taking me on four mile walks every day, and boy does that wear me out! I also love Kongs with peanut butter and a game of ball. I am a smart girl who knows how to sit and walk nicely on a leash. I would love for you to spend some time teaching me some more cool tricks so we can show off to our friends.

I do very well with children and even play very friendly with them. I get along well with most other dogs. I currently have a small fluffy little Maltese buddy in my foster home who is my best friend.

There is one thing I will not tolerate in my home and that is a cat! I get very fixated on those little creatures. Just because I don’t care for cats doesn’t make me a bad dog; I just need a feline-free home, please.

If you are interested in spending some time with me to make sure I am the right dog for you and lifestyle please come to the Allen County SPCA Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to visit me, I will be patiently waiting!

I am looking forward to meeting you and playing a game of ball!



A special note from the Allen County SPCA:

Remember dogs are a lifelong commitment. We at the Allen County SPCA ask that you take adding a furry family member to your home seriously and do your research on the different breeds before adopting.

We also ask that you are able to keep up on yearly vaccinations, monthly preventatives, a good diet, daily exercise, training, and most of all LOVE.

If you ever are having an issue with a dog that you have adopted please contact us right away, we may be able to help or we can put you in touch with someone who can.
