360 pugs rescued since October, 2005
Henree - 16 Month Old Male
In Foster Care

Introduction, January 14, 2020

Here's ... Henree!! A-16-month old intact long-legged pug cross, Henree is full of life and can jump onto furniture in a single bound. A typical teenager, he needs consistent boundaries and lots of positive reinforcement for his many good behaviours. He loves walkies and is great on leash. Not having been exposed to many dogs in his past, he is integrating well with the resident dogs although he hasn't grasped the concept of playing with them yet. He needs to learn not to hump and sniff the female, a behaviour we hope will stop after he is neutered in a few weeks. Henree's more of a person dog and endears himself quickly to his humans, needing to be close at all times. When he's displeased (e.g. when crated or separated from his people), he is very vocal and his shrieks could take the paint off the walls. While he's mostly clean in the house now, he still has to wear a belly band until his foster family is 100% sure that he will not mark.

Henree's health is good. His blood work and fecal test came back unremarkable and his limbs are strong. He was negative for Lyme, heartworm, anaplasma and ehrlichia. His teeth are great which is just as well since his underbite shows them off. He had his rabies shot on Monday; upcoming vetting will include neutering, a DHPP and implantation of a microchip. There is a large lump on his back which we believe is a benign lipoma but it will be fine needle aspirated during neuter surgery to make sure. Henree could stand to gain a little weight but is not a big fan of mealtimes. Currently we're feeding him several smaller meals a day, out of his bowl at mealtimes and off the floor in between.

We just love the little heart on his nose!

Once his vetting is done, Henree will make an affectionate companion for an active family, perhaps with children old enough to appreciate his youthful exuberance. Please wait until he is posted as Ready to Adopt before submitting an application.
