Harley is generally described by people who know him as gentle giant, being half Golden Retriever (on his mother's side) and half farm-dog Huntaway (on his father's side). More photos are to come as this is an old one and doesn't do him justice. We must unfortunately re-home Harley on account of sudden ill health. We can no longer give him the care and attention he deserves. He has been with us since he was 8 weeks old so we know all there is to know about him.

He's extremely friendly and affectionate, responds to basic commands and is quiet around the house and the section.

He is also phenomenally strong. He walks nicely on a lead, but we use a halti on him as well, because if he sees a cat he will lunge at it. Unfortunately, he doesn't like cats! Whether he could be de-sensitized to them, we don't know. He's been fed a Raw Essentials diet since he was four months old, is in superb health and weighs approximately 41 kilos. We feel that he would suit an active family (with boys perhaps?) where he receives plenty of people contact and lots of exercise and play. An experienced dog handler would need to be in his new family, as being half-Huntaway there is a very determined nature lurking behind that "gentle giant persona" of his.

It's possible he could be trained to work to some extent on a farm, but the outdoor-kennel life of a farm dog would not be right for this big softie who enjoys being indoors of an evening, sleeping at our feet. If Harley sounds like he could be just right for you, please call.
