Henry is a tan and white male, born on 3rd December 2013. He needs a new home as he is not benefitting from a change in his family’s circumstances. Henry is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.
Henry is happy to go for a walk, and has been walked on a slip lead and a long line. He has been allowed off lead in secure fields only. Henry is used to travelling in the car, and has grown out of the travel sickness he had as a puppy. Henry has never shown aggression to anyone he has met, but has fallen out with a dog who has spent time in his owner’s home and growled at him. Other than that, he has had no trouble with other dogs.
At home, Henry is house trained and crate trained. He can be left on his own for a few hours, but has always had the company of another dog, so if he was to be the only dog in the home, he would need to have time alone slowly built up to avoid developing separation anxiety. Henry is not destructive. Henry is a keen escapologist, so would need a very secure garden to play in. He’s also good at opening doors in the house, and taught himself to open the oven, so his home would need to be well and truly beagle proof! Henry likes to help himself to food wrappers, but will return stolen items when asked.
Henry has never lived with cats or children, so he would prefer his new home to be one without them, although calm and dog-experienced older children, who could allow him time to adjust to them, could possibly be considered as part of his new home. Henry has lived with another dog and had no trouble with that, although he fell out with another dog who comes to stay in his house, so any introductions to a potential new friend would have to be done sensitively. Henry has a minor allergy to some cleaning products, and flare-ups are easily controlled with a steroid tablet. Henry is quite an independent character, who values the company of his family but is not necessarily one for cuddles and games. Like all beagles, he adores his food, and his idea of a good time features a treat-dispensing toy and plenty of mischiefs.
