You open the front door and out bolts your furry family member. You call out, cry and search all over town and he's nowhere to be found. It can happen to anyone and it's happened to Harley's family, but you can help.

It breaks my heart when I hear about a lost pet. I know how much it hurts the family and it also hurts the pet that can't find their way home. There's so much pain and it's so hard to explain it to children. You have a chance to help this cute little schnauzer/poodle mix pup. His name is Harley and he belongs to a loving family.

He’s been missing since Saturday, May 6th around Pleasant Valley Road and HWY 142.

Harley is only 9 months old, is all black with some white and brown undertones and is a sweetheart. He weighs about 10-13lbs.

The family is desperate. Please call (270) 313-8546 if you see him. He may have been picked up by someone and isn't being returned, so if you're at someone's house and you see him, please report it so Harley can find his way back to his family. He is microchipped.

If you have a missing pet in the community please remember that there are some great ways to get the word out via social media at Lost and Found Pets in Owensboro and Lost and Found Pets of Daviess County KY. These are valuable resources and as always contact the local shelters!
