Late Friday night Ronny called me up to see a dog he had found on Harley. He's a Basenji/Red Heeler Mix or at least that is what his previous owner thought. Basenji's are barkless dogs and Red Heelers are Australian cattle dogs. Basenji's are hypoallergenic, curious, smart, and have lots of energy. Red Heelers are smart, even tempered, and also have lots of energy. The add said the dog was already house broken, and raised around children and other dogs. I told Ronny to call the number and Ronny made arrangements to take the kids out to see him Saturday afternoon. Charley didn't seem to have any problem with him and the boys fell in love with him immediately. And so......Harley is now home with us.
I have heard him bark once at the Pet Store when another dog challenged him, other than that he hasn't made a sound. Ronny gave him a bath last night and he has been great with the kids. The kids are loving playing with him and taking him on walks. He isn't so big that he is in the way and not so small we are tripping over him. He is a year old but doesn't look like he is going to get much bigger. Ronny is looking forward to taking him on his morning runs. I think Harley was worth the wait. We love him already!
