Despite everything, Hartley is still a happy, active little girl who is approximately 3 years old. She was adopted out from a locall high kill shelter in March with Demodex mange, which is very treatable. Hartley left on a medical waiver, which required the adopter to follow up with the shelter about her healthcare. Well, he never did. Poor Hartley is now in terrible shape and landed in the shelter again as a forced owner surrender due to severe neglect, pending criminal investigation. In such bad shape, she would not have made it out of the shelter without rescue help. Harley deserves her second chance: she is a very sweet, loving little lady.
