Harley was rescued from a hoarding situation in April 2018 along with over 100 other dogs and cats. Her good fortune in being saved was short-lived when veterinarians found she had a significant brain tumor. The ASPCA had the tumor removed, and once again, Harley had a chance for a good life—but she would have to work hard for it. After her surgery, she needed extensive physical therapy to learn how to walk again and to simply be a dog.
“She’s a giant sweetheart and has made my life immeasurably better!”
Harley spent several months at the ASPCA's temporary shelter, where she became a staff and responder favorite. This past November, Harley caught the eye of David, who had recently lost his dog. David was looking for another special dog to keep him company. In a short period of time, he fell head over heels in love with Harley and decided he wanted to foster her. He works at home, and he and Harley spend almost every waking minute together. David says, “She’s a giant sweetheart and has made my life immeasurably better!” Anyone who has met Harley knows that David’s words ring true. Harley has found her person and, despite all odds, is living a wonderful life with someone who loves her—just in time for the holidays.
