Poor Henley has been such a faithful companion but sadly his owner has recently died and he is missing her. He is gorgeous. A little wobbly at times but is a young at heart, good natured boy who deserves a really nice home. He is very friendly and whilst happy to relax (and snore!) he is still an active boy in short spurts!
He really does love to spend time playing with you and can get quite excited with enjoyment! We have discovered he is very hard of hearing so have started to introduce techniques to get him to focus on you on walks and particularly during his daily playtime sessions so that he knows when you want him to do or stop something. His new owner must be prepared to carry on working with him on this as it is definitely working and he is loving the attention. A ball to chase, a kong to chew on, a rope toy to tug at with you or a cuddly toy to carry are all real pleasures to Henley.
He likes to enjoy regular short walks. He walks along nicely but as he is still a very strong boy he needs someone who will not be pulled over by him if he suddenly decides to go and investigate something!
He is looking for plenty of home comforts (he loves chicken), a nice garden in which he can relax in or play with you and have short daily walks. In return he will become your best friend and constant companion.
He really is an absolute delight to be with and fully deserves to be given the time and attention he needs to help him interact effectively with you and overcome his lack of hearing. He is so loving once he engages with you, expect a few kisses!
He ought to be back in a loving home environment as soon as possible.
