(Find information on how to submit your own pet's profile at the bottom of this profile.)

Name: Harley! She is as cool, independent, fun and rockin' as Harley Quinn!

Nickname: Harls

Species/breed: Golden retriever mixed with a bit of Godzilla. Stomps around, swishes floofy tail to knock her sibling kitties around.

Age: 2.5 years

Fave food: "Chikem" and bacon

Special tricks: Harley is a pro at rolling over and belly rubs. Her belly rubs can distract anyone, causing them to immediately feel the need to rub her plump little tummy.

Best quality: Unending love and need for attention (although, this is a debated quality!)

Social media platform or handle, if available: On Instagram @HarleyQuinnPoochie
