Hello, my name is Henry. I am a very handsome, energetic and goofy adult male Standard Poodle who immediately attached myself to foster mom and now I follow her everywhere! Hee, hee!! Truth is, I am one of those guys who loves to be doted on and I think foster mom loves having a shadow as precious as I am so it’s a win-win! I also whole-heartedly believe that I am a lap dog so I jump on the couch and snuggle in next to mom and the other dogs.
As you can tell, I have a big personality, am incredibly affectionate and love getting as much affection as possible…you know, like belly rubs and hugs (hint, hint), but I also love playing with squeaky toys and balls, chewing on bully sticks, and giving gentle little nibble-kisses! I do best with some physical or mental stimulation everyday - it is important to keep a smart and energetic dog like me busy. Plus it gives us more time to spend together - an exercise routine for me would be awesome!
I have not met any cats and I’m not crazy about a lot of commotion, but I am good with kids and other dogs. If there are kids in my forever home, it would be best if they are older as I sometimes get mouthy when I play. Foster mom is always sticking a toy in my mouth so I don't chew on things I shouldn't. I am doing my best so hopefully my forever family has some good toys! That said, I prefer dogs who are about my size, and I prefer to meet them one at a time otherwise I get anxious. I do fine with my foster fur sibs but when I went to the groomer, I didn’t like having so many other dogs there. Speaking of grooming…I am a very patient boy! When I first got here, I had several mats in my beautiful coat and, for what seemed like an eternity (hee, hee), I stood still while mom cut them away from my WHOLE body…I know right…I clearly have the patience of a saint!! Ok…full disclosure, I will stay still for as long as someone wants to touch me LOL! I really am quite a gentleman and here’s a perfect example: When mom’s trying to get all of us ready to go for a walk, my three fur sibs are causing all sorts of chaos while I…amazingly tolerant Henry…simply sit there (secretly rolling my eyes at the others) and wait until we walk out the door!
I don't hang out in my kennel often (it's really only for sleeping and hiding MY toys), but I'll go in without a problem especially if I get a busy bone! I am potty trained and sometimes just go outside to romp around the yard. I am smart too, not only do I know commands like “down”, “sit”, and “go potty”, but I do well with the leash, and I even picked up a few commands by simply observing interactions between mom and the other dogs. I suppose I should mention that I growled at one of my little 10lb foster sibs once. I know, not one of my finest moments but in my defense, I was trying to eat my food…did you catch that ‘MYYY’ food! Hee, hee!!
Anyway, I really am a very sweet boy who is simply looking for a furever home with a fenced yard and a family who will love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me! I really hope that YOU will be my family because something inside me says we’re soulmates who are destined to experience this enormous world together!! I promise that not only am I totally worth it, but I will even let you give me a massage before bed…now seriously, how generous am I!?! Love, Henry
