Henry Little Legs is a great big character in a teeny body. He is not quite sure what mixture of breeds he is, but his best guess is Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Dachshund, hmmm, or possibly Bassett Hound. Whatever he is crossed with he suits very well. Not quite elevated to the level that he'd have probably liked, but oh how cute do his little legs make him?!

Henry was another abandoned dog in the pound on the put to sleep list Sad He spent a while in emergency boarding kennels where he was vaccinated and neutered. (Sorry about that Henry, but needs must!) And then it was off to his foster home in sunny Devon.

Sadly, the dogs that Henry is living with aren't at all impressed with their new house guest and he would like a home where all the family members welcome him, not just the human ones! We are also looking for a foster home for him, so that the dogs in his foster home can have their lives back to normal, without their new house guest, but for Henry's sake, we are ideally looking for a forever home, so he doesn't become stressed through moving about too much.

Henry is about 3 or 4 (we think) He is an absolute sweetheart, but he does need someone who has knowledge and experience with staffies, as he needs clear boundaries, as all dogs do! So that he doesn't elevate above his little legs! We are looking for a home where he won't be 'babied' (though Henry would prefer one where he was babied, we wouldn't!) Henry is very good with other dogs, as long as no treats,toys or food are around, but he doesn't get all grumpy around food with humans, only with other dogs, and with dogs, it's not the kind of grumpy that would lead to all engines firing, 'in it for the long haul' attack grumpy, it's just snappy grumpy. Henry isn't cat tested, so we are looking for a home without cats. He could live with teenaged, dog savvy children.

Henry is a whole lot of personality for such a little man. He likes to 'chase' birds when they're miles up in the sky, he knows he can't catch them but gives it 100% anyway. He is very loving, responsive and clever. He's housetrained, fine in the car, knows how to sit and give paw, and he could no doubt learn all manner of other things with his own person. Henry has so much to give to someone and whoever is destined to be his adopter will have such a funny and loving little best friend.

Henry is in Foster care in the Devon area EX32

Henry has settled in and become his true self. He has won over the other dogs at his foster home, and they love to play with him Smile

He has also relaxed and isn't pushing the boundaries anymore, he just needed some time to get himself sorted out.

Sadly though, we do still need a foster home, but for a different reason now...
Although we would prefer a forever home for Henry, his foster home has an old stone wall surrounding the garden, it is covered in foliage and as it is not a level wall on the sides, he is able to get a foot-hold onto the wall and climb up it. This is a worry! so we are looking for a new foster home for Henry as soon as is possible. He wouldn't be able to climb up a level fence or wall.

If anyone can help and foster Henry until we can find him a forever home, please email me cathy@oncelovedrescue.org.uk or pm me here.

Thank you xx
