Henry is a sweetheart of a dog who is being surrendered because the child in the home has developed allergies and asthma. He is living with a trainer who tells us, “Henry is a great dog! He is a roughly 3 year old, mixed breed, male pup that weighs about 50lbs.
We have lots of dogs come in and out of our home (our own, fosters, and in home training dogs) and he has been great with them all. He is very respectful of space and enjoys playing, but when he is done he will remove himself and wait to come in or go lay on a dog bed.
Henry's ideal forever home would include another social and neutral dog and a full family! He would love an active family, someone to run with and go on hikes with or camping. He is great with kids of all ages and cats.
Henry has jumped willingly off a dock and enjoys swimming (not completely ready for dock diving but could be a potential fit). He would also be a candidate for rally obedience or agility! Henry does know basic commands...sit, down, come, place, and off. He does also walk fairly well on a leash and is treat motivated.
Henry's new family must have patience as he can be very nervous when meeting new people. He may react by barking and backing up but with a short period of time and some tasty treats he will warm right up. I am assuming that in his new home this activity would continue with visitors until he is completely comfortable. Again, patience is a must!
Henry is completely house broken and crate trained.
In our house right now he lives with a 3 year old girl, 1 intact male dog 3 neutered males, and 3 spayed females, and 2 male cats. Henry is absolutely fine with everyone in the house. He may bark at a dog walking by the house though. He seems to want to protect his home.
We do not free feed, all dogs are fed in their kennels so I'm not sure about food aggression with dogs but does not have a problem with water. He does not have an issue with us playing with his food. He is a dog that I would allow to have freedom in the house while not home as long as everything is safe.”
To apply to adopt Henry or any of our sweeties, please check out our application.
Please note: We do not have a physical location, but we are supported by a network of wonderful foster homes that are spread throughout New England. A dog will need to be visited by a prospective adopter in the foster home where they are feeling safe and comfortable.
Thank you for considering rescue!
Henry is fostered in New England, waiting for his forever family to find him.
