Dog Story: Henry is a sweet, young and very active boy who is on the small side physically (under 30 pounds) but who is large of heart and spirit. He plays enthusiastically with the younger of his two Brittany foster brothers and respects the distance that the older dog prefers. Henry has energy to spare and would do best with a family that has the energy to keep up with him. After a busy day, Henry spends the full night sleeping in his crate where he also spends limited time during the day when no one is home. Henry knows basic commands lik e sit and down, and he is a fast learner who will quickly build up his repertoire with training. He will let you know when he needs to go out by going to the door. Henry has a lot more developing to do and will need patient, gentle and confident guidance from his people. Henry gets nervous and excited in new situations. He behaves well on leash except when he encounters other dogs to which he responds with agitation and barking. As Henry gains experience, he is becoming more comfortable in new surroundings and is learning to behave appropriately when out for walks on his leash, but it will take time, training and patience before he is able to do this consistently and well. If you are looking for a dog who can walk downtown with you and sit quietly under your table at the sidewalk cafe, Henry is not that dog yet! But, he can get there with the right training and handling. Henry is a great little guy with a lovable and affectionate nature. He is as happy to curl up in your arms and snuggle as he is to romp in the yard and play. Henry will do best with patient and experienced dog people, and he would greatly enjoy and benefit from having stable and mature dogs in his family who can provide Henry with leadership as well as play with him. We feel it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure a good fit, so we ask that potential adopters are able to come visit with Henry prior to adoption.

Henry arrived as a shelter stray and was rescued by ABR.
