For Harley’s sake and mine, I have decided to re-home her. Unfortunately, I am unable to give her the life she deserves and refuse to hold her back anymore. I have tried my best for this past year to be the best dog mom I can possibly be, but what I have to offer is not enough. I am willing to drive from California to find Harley the perfect and most desirable home.
Please take the time to read the following:
Backstory: A little over a year ago, I made the decision to take in Harley after her previous owners (after only four months) could not keep up anymore. She required more than they could provide for her and were welcoming a newborn into this world. As most of us know, cattle dogs and heelers are high energy and must have something to always do. I am almost 23 and a first time dog owner, so I was not prepared at all and take full responsibility for her lack of potential. Since she has been my girl, I have organized my whole life around her needs. With the pandemic, living alone in a 450 sq ft apartment, and finishing up my undergraduate studies at UC Davis, my mental health suffered a severe decline. Not only was I experiencing issues with my overall health, but my grades began to fall and my financial struggles grew. For the past few months, I have been barely surviving and holding my head afloat. It is unfair to Harley and myself to continue living unhappy when we both could have better lives.
Experience: After realizing what I had signed myself up for, I knew right away that I needed to seek out help. I became Harley’s mom when she was about 1 year and 4 months, learning that she was never socialized. On top of this, she suffers from anxiety and has fear aggression in certain situations.
also does not do well with children. She will nip them any chance she gets. Her previous owners did not socialize her as a puppy so she can be hesitant to play with certain dogs. So far, she has nipped 2 children at the park. One was running with her toy and the other was just running around the area. Unless introduced properly, Harley is not fond of men and may view them as a threat. Lastly, when I first took her in, she got into a fight with my neighbors dog who came into our home unannounced and redirected, accidentally biting my arm.
As much as it pains me to have to do this, it is for the best—
