My name is Henry, I am 14 months old, currently in Florida and I LOVE water! I am looking for a forever family, hopefully with at least 3/4 - 1 acre fenced yard to run and play (yes, I’m a bit particular about that). I have a LOOOOOT of energy that I need to run off, so I need a safe place to do it (and there are no humans alive that can run fast enough or long enough to wear me out on a run).
I am very respectful of fences and get along with horses, lambs, cows, and I am always passive with other dogs. I’m a great large animal friend. Even when it comes to food, toys and playing. But when it comes to the small ones, well, no cats, chickens, small dogs or children for me. I play rough sometimes and forget how big I am. So they aren’t safe.
I would love a big basket of toys and an inside, comfy dog bed to lay on. I am crate-trained now, and I would absolutely have to have a water source so I can swim. It can be a big kiddy pool, swimming pool, lake, ocean, or pond, but I have to be able to swim! Otherwise I will make my own pool out of whatever water source I can find. I LOVE WATER Ya'll!! So if you haven’t figured it out, that is a MUST on my forever home list.
I’ve been working on some things so I’m ready for my new home. I have mastered how to sit on command, crate sleeping at night, and I’ve curbed my jumping habit (that one is hard since I get so excited to see my humans). I am still working on leash walking, but my foster mom says with the appropriate collar I am really good. I still need some consistent work on inside house manors, but I have made BIG improvements when it comes to being inside.
I would like a family that enjoys being outside with me since that's where I'm happiest. I would love a k9 sibling, but my foster mom says I listen best when I’m an only dog (and no children under 6 years old). I am still figuring out what being a dog is all about, but I am happy, loving, eager to please and willing to learn. So, I just need a special family to help me continue to grow and learn.
If you’re interested in me, please complete an adoption application (if you haven’t already), then email my foster mom Vicky at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her why you think you’re the best home for me. And I don’t want to forget, since I’m vetted, temperament tested, know all sorts of cool things, my adoption fee is $375.
