Harley is a three-year-old Chihuahua who is full of energy.

He gets along with people and other animals, and he loves to explore outdoors and play with friends. He also enjoys playing with stuffed toys.

Harley weighs about 11 pounds, is good on leash, and is housetrained – provided he’s taken out frequently. He’s crate trained, but has done well when left alone in the house with his foster siblings.

His ideal home would have another small dog for him to bond with.
Harley is neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites, and microchipped. He comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. His adoption fee is $400.
