Henry ~ Sweet, Loving and Loyal – 3yo Black Lurcher

Post by tamakin on Sun Aug 12, 2012 11:34 pm

HENRY

**UPDATED: AUGUST 2012**

Henry is a beautiful black lurcher boy who is just 3 years old. Henry had a tough start to life and was found straying in bad condition in Ireland. Now, however, Henry is a beautiful shiny boy whose sleek black coat is a beacon of health. He is a medium sized lurcher and has a lovely strong but elegant build. Henry also has the most stunning bright amber eyes that really contrast beautifully against his black coat.



~ Personality ~
Henry has had a tough start to life but he is working hard on getting over this hump. He isn’t in your face about asking for attention, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t loving, Henry is very loyal and affectionate with ‘his’ people, and is sure to make a fantastic best friend once that bond is formed. He is social, quiet and content in busy situations and is always happy to meet other dogs and be petted by people. In short, it may take this boy a bit longer to get to know you, but if you give him that time you are rewarded with a beautifully loyal, lifelong friend.

~ In the Home ~
Henry has not yet been in a home environment, so new owners will need to be a bit understanding at the start and give him time to learn the house rules. All he needs is a bit of time to be allowed to settle and readjust, and we’re sure once this boy discovers the comfort of sofa’s it might be hard to get him up in the morning! He is a cuddly boy and loves curling up with his lurcher friend Grace when it’s time for bed.



~ Other Animals ~
Henry is very good with other dogs and has never caused any trouble. He is very happy to meet new dogs when out and about, and relies heavily on his best friend Grace, another lurcher looking for a home. They have formed a lovely bond that has allowed Henry to adjust to his changing surroundings better than if he were on his own. As such, we feel Henry would do best in a home with another dog present to show him the ropes, so to speak.

Henry has not yet been tested with cats but this will be carried out soon. He has been in kennels located right next to horses, donkeys and sheep and never bothered with any of them.

~ Out and About ~
Henry is a good boy when out in the real world. He is quiet and calm but not nervous, just content to watch the goings-on and greet whomever comes up to him. After the initial excitement has worn off, Henry walks well on the lead. He also travels very well in the car and is a pleasure to take with you. Once Henry has bonded with his new owners, he has great potential for recall training and may be suitable to be let offlead in a safe area.

~ Where Am I? ~
Henry is currently in kennels in Norfolk. He can be homed anywhere in the UK, but please note that you may be required to travel to our rescue to meet and collect him.

~ Want To Adopt Me? ~
Henry is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flea'd and wormed and a homecheck will be required as part of the adoption procedure. This dear boy would benefit so very much from a chance to live in a foster home and Kerry Greyhounds UK is always eager for new foster volunteers. It is an extremely rewarding experience and costs are covered by us.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering Henry, please visit either our website’s Adoption Page: http://s300889640.websitehome.co.uk/uk/adoption.html or Fostering Page: http://s300889640.websitehome.co.uk/uk/Fostering.html for information and instructions on our homing & fostering procedures. If you have any further questions or problems, please feel free to email me (Tam) on tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs. Thanks!


~~ KERRY GREYHOUNDS UK ~~

Kerry Greyhounds UK is a small voluntary organisation that is based in Norfolk, England. It focuses on rehoming unwanted Irish greyhounds and lurchers, as huge numbers are bred in Ireland each year and homes are few and far between. KGUK operates through a network of volunteers spaced over Ireland and the UK. We can look after approximately 30 dogs at any one time in both kennels and foster homes.

Each dog is neutered, vaccinated, & microchipped before being adopted (unless stated otherwise).
We assess the suitability of all home offers, and we have homed greyhounds in all corners of the UK.

Our Website: http://www.kerrygreyhounds.co.uk

If interested in one of our hounds, please visit our website’s Adoption Page for information and instructions on our homing procedures. Once you have filled in and returned the application form, we will then contact you via phone or email to discuss adopting one of our hounds in more detail.

If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. I (Tam) can be contacted through the following email:
Email: tamakin_84@yahoo.co.uk
Emails are usually replied to within 24hrs.

Thank you.

Henry is still looking for his forever home. He has settled wonderfully into his foster home and is definitely ready to find a family to call his own.

If you are interested in adopting Henry, you can contact me (Tam) via email: tam@kerrygreyhounds.co.uk, or speak directly to Bronwen by phoning: 075 000 62648. Emails are usually replied to within 24 hrs.

There is an application form for adopting Henry, and we will ask you to fill it in as the first step in the adoption process. To speed up this process, we recommend you do this before emailing/calling. You can find the form, as well as further information on our homing procedures, on the Adoption Page: http://s300889640.websitehome.co.uk/uk/adoption.html.

Thank you.
