Henry is 52 lbs of sweetness! He is gentle, eager to please, smart, and is taking to training easily. He has such a great expressive face. He is looking for an active family either as an "only" or with a canine buddy. An experienced dog family will do great with Henry!
We have found that Henry is not super comfortable with physical affection from people he is not very familiar with. Even when he loves you, he'll sit on the couch with you but he's less excited about a lot of petting, hugging, etc. He is staying with our friends at Kompletely K9 Dog Training and doing amazing! Kristen told us, “today he helped me with a neighbor’s dog who has been very reactive on leash with other dogs. We were able to get to the point where they could actually meet. Henry was excellent through the whole exercise and wasn't pushy at all with her. I have noticed since he's been here that he doesn't seem to be a dog who's big on affection. My suggestion to anyone who fosters or adopts would be to let him solicit affection. I think he needs to have time to know and trust the person before he can handle the affection. He may never be a cuddly dog, but he loves walks, activity, and other dogs. He has been on walks now with 1-3 other dogs and has been fine. He met my dog savvy cat on leash and was very respectful. That doesn't mean he might not try to chase a cat out of fun if it ran, but he didn't show any aggressive tendencies.”

Please note, we do not have a physical facility where our dogs are housed, they are cared for in our network of wonderful foster homes throughout New England. If you find a dog you would like to meet, our expectation is that, once approved, you will travel to meet the dog in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Thank you for considering rescue!
