Personality: Henry came to GRR for his Furrever home placement as his previous owners hoped to find him a more compatible home.  He is a playful, adaptable fella that enjoys a great game of fetch.  Henry has wonderful manners and is very intelligent, with tasks such as sit and stay.  He’s also easily redirected! Henry truly enjoys pleasing his people, and does not mind the activities of foster cats or squirrels in the yard. He is an experienced leash walker and does not pull or require lots of redirection. He does best with a mid-day potty break and is demonstrating the skill of being house broken. 

Ideal home: Henry is recovering from a mild dermatitis likely associated with a flea infestation, and was also found to have hook worms.  As he heals though, his personality is shining through like a bright spring sun!  Henry will do best in a family that is moderately active and is patient to train him with advanced commands. He has the sit and stay down pat, but he needs further direction on when to “drop it” – the good news is that he will allow you to take the ball from his mouth gently.  He is gentle with treats and has good manners with meals.  He does sleep through the night and enjoys the quiet of his crate, although he does require some encouragement to get into the crate.  Once in the crate he is comfortable and generally quiet, and he is excited with human interaction and looking for approval. Henry is searching for his lifetime companion, is it you?
