Harley - Subessen Echoes of Peace
Harley was the first of the puppies to be born and as such was given the name Alfred but shortened to Fred. He was a lively puppy who enjoyed playing with the others.

When he was seven weeks old he crossed the Severn Bridge to live with Fran, Norrie, Brett and Tamzin Petersen and has enjoyed running in the Welsh hills ever since.
