The foster to adopt family fell in love with Harley and don't want him to go anywhere…he has found a new home!
All the kids are older, some out of the house and the parents of the wife live close by and raise and show another breed, which I can't remember right now:o But here is the post I recieved today.
Here is what the new family wrote...oh, its a blended family, total members is 8,
Not that this will come as a surprise to you, but it has become apparent that Harley has chosen us as his new family (& we agree with the decision). It was an 8 to 0 family vote last night in favor of this guy becoming a permanent member of the family.
He seems particularly attached to me (Crystal) already- yesterday I got in the shower and shut the bathroom door and my hubby finally came up and asked if we could leave it open as Harley was pacing the living room and up & down the stairs whining. As soon as we left the bathroom door open and he could see me, he was just fine! We can't get over what a cuddle bug he is. His favorite spot seems to be tightly wedged between me & Alex while we're sitting on the couch.
We took him on a nice long walk yesterday and he did well. We also had an extended family get together that involved lots of adults, kids & a few dogs & he did beautifully! Our family kept saying how good he was & how well behaved. 2 neighbors have come over to get a better look & compliment on what a beautiful dog he is. We tried out the crate for part of our family gathering (he was in for about 40 min.- we were just down the street) and he whined a bit but did ok.
I'm off to PetSmart today to get him some better food and a permanent water dish and hopefully a tag with his new address (the kids are really worried about this).
Thanks so much for your help. It honestly went a lot faster than we were expecting, but with great results! I've taken a few pics and I'll take a few more and then forward them to you.

So again, thank you folks..YOU all did right by this boy.
