Facts about Henry

  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

Henry, oh Henry! This friendly, silly, sometimes clumsy boy will steel your heart fast. He is a tricolor, 2-year-old, neutered Foxhound weighing in at about 50 pounds. He is great with cats or other dogs about his size. He would probably be ok with a smaller dog if an experienced owner introduced him to a “sturdy” small dog. He doesn’t hurt them but his silly antics and occasional clumsiness might put the other dog at risk of energy.
Henry was saved from a shelter in VA. He was abandoned by a hunter - we think it's because he is visually impaired. He is almost completely blind - and now has a mature cataract in one eye. He gets around very well when he learns the "lay of the land" but he does need a seeing eye person when out on walks. Henry is very friendly and loves people. Ideally, Henry should go to a home that has an active family that will either walk him or that has a fenced yard where he could run with supervision. Henry is playful, comical and silly ...and loves attention. He enjoys a good chew bone...and has learned to play with toys. He does not get in to things around him except for the 2 pair of shoes that he chewed...because his foster mom left them out where they were confused for toys...and they were leather. He hasn't chewed any other shoes - just leather. I believe it was a case of "mistaken identity" due to vision.
We think that smaller children could startle Henry with fast movements and noises and they would be at a level to be right in his face - which would be scary for Henry therefore a home with slightly older children might be best. A one level home is problem best for Henry. We do crate him at night and he does enjoy sleeping in his "room" - we only due this so that he doesn't get himself in a pickle.

Henry is not a good candidate for an older person...or someone with disabilities. He is very strong and can be very silly on a leash at times. He is a hound and will pull you to where he wants to relieve himself.... which in his fosters yard, is an acre away with his modest behind in the bushes.

This gentle giant didn’t seem to learn some things as a pup, probably because of his eye sight. Since his placement in the rescue he has learned to enjoy belly rubs and toys. He does stress a little in the car and will not lay down. His preferred travel position is to stand on the floor of the back seat. During his day to day adventures this goofball will not sit down. He either lays or stands. In fact, if an adopter were to ever get him to sit or catch it, we would very much like a picture. Lol

Henry is one big, lovable, gentle boy that really wants a home of his own where he can soak up all of the love you have to give. His adoption fee is $350. He is vaccinated, heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped and up to date on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. If you have a lot of love and attention to give a silly boy, Henry is your guy.

Our Adoption Process...

Each adoption starts with an application process. We do a thorough background check, including checking references - both vet and personal. We then follow up with a home check (depending on the location will dictate how we conduct a home check). Contracts and adoption fees are completed prior to any transport of a dog. We will require an adopter to establish a relationship with their vet within 30 days of an adoption and provide written proof of such. Each adoption situation is handled on an individual basis, as are adoption fees. We strive to return any telephone calls within 3 business days.
