This week's Pets of the Week at Baltimore Humane Society are Harley and Boyfriend. Here's what they each have to say--
Hello. My name is Harley and I am a two-and-half-year-old Shepherd/Pit Mix. I was brought to BHS because my owner was not able to keep me contained in her fence and I kept getting away. I am very sweet and have a lot of energy. I also enjoy playing with toys, and getting treats and attention. I do have a tendency to jump up on people so I may need training or help in that area. I love to go for walks, but a harness would really help. I seem to be okay with other dogs, but if you have another dog we would do an intro to be sure everyone gets along. The same goes for children -- since I have not lived with any, we would arrange to meet and see if everyone gets along. I’ve been here a while and would love to find a terrific family. Could it be you?
Hello. My name is Boyfriend and I am three-and-a-half years old. I was originally brought to BHS in 2010 because my guardians abandoned me at an apartment complex. I was adopted and then returned AGAIN because the person had allergies! I am very sweet, and love people and food. I am playful and kind, but I am NOT a lap cat. I would still make someone a great companion. I can sometimes be a real talker too, just depends upon my mood. If you would like to meet me in person, please visit BHS soon.
The adoption fee for Harley is $165, and $105 for Boyfriend. Plus get a free bag of starter food!
