Handsome Henry is looking for his forever home for the holidays! Sadly, the initial part of Henry's life was less than impressive. Henry formally lived in a home with an array of small children and also other dogs. He was crated on a nearly constant basis to the point that his paws were urine stained in addition to being drastically underweight at only 39 pounds at the time of his surrender.  

Life has much improved for Henry since coming to our rescue! He is an intelligent fella that is eager to please which is evident by the commands he has mastered to include sit, lay and paw. Henry thoroughly enjoys spending time outdoors on nice days to include his daily walks with his foster Mom. With time and patience, he has made great improvement with leash training although he can be understandably excitable in less than familiar territory. Henry enjoys playing with his toys and will gladly participate in a game of fetch or tug of war. For the most part he is a laid back guy that simply enjoys being in your presence. We truly feel he is a perfect balance of play and snuggles!

Since Henry was continually crated and received no training for the initial 10 months of his life, time and patience were certainly a must until Henry learned a routine. A home where Henry is not alone for extended periods of time is needed to ensure Henry is getting ample bathroom breaks. A fenced yard is also strongly preferred; however, other options may also be considered especially for dog savvy, experienced handlers.

Henry is adorable and goofy! Without a doubt, he keeps us smiling and laughing! He absolutely loves everyone and everything that he meets. Henry plays well with other dogs, gets along with cats and people of all ages. Of course, cuddling up on the sofa and sleeping in bed with his humans  is also right up his alley.

We absolutely adore Henry and know that his perfect someone is out there! If you think Henry may be the dog for you, please fill out an application today!
