This week we’d like to feature TWO dogs! That’s because they came in together and would very much like to go home together.
We’d like you to meet Harley and Tex! Harley is a 10-year-old female, black American Pit Bull who weighs almost 72 pounds.

And, they have a video! You can see in the video how mellow, easy, and laid back they are with one another. They like nothing more than to go for easy strolls, eat grass, get treats, sleep, snuggle, and get pets. These are two easy dogs who are looking for their perfect retirement home. Do you like gentle walks and hikes? Do you have the space for a couple nice, cushy dog beds? Do you have a sunny spot in your yard where they might be able to lounge in the sun on nice days? These two might just be the dogs for you!
Their previous owner tells us that Harley is really good on adventures and hikes, but she’s also fine on days she doesn’t get much exercise. She doesn’t seem to know her size because one of her favorite things to do is sit on her peoples’ laps!
Tex loves to walk and could walk all day, every day. He also loves to sunbathe.
They both like to chew (especially Tex) and regularly had bones and antlers to chew on. We see their love for chewing in the shelter, too. They gravitate toward Nylabone-like toys and chewing on them seems comforting and relaxing to them. Both are potty trained, lived with kiddos from 1-4, and regularly interacted with kids up to 10 years old. Both are mostly indifferent to other dogs while on walks, but neither is super fond of little dogs. Especially Harley. Both can be a bit picky with dogs they like and prefer dogs that are gentle or indifferent. Neither has ever lived with a cat and would probably do best in a cat-free home.
Do these two lovebugs seem like they might be the dogs for you? If so, fill out their questionnaires at the bottom of their profiles and set up a time go to meet these elderly siblings!
