About Me

Henry is a lively and active lurcher- when he first meets new people he can be worried and a bit apprehensive, but when he gets to know you his loving and scatty side shines through - he absolutely loves curling up together with his bonded people, and adores a duvet. Typical for his breed he likes a good chase, so for the foreseeable future, he will need to be muzzled and on lead when out for walks.

Henry finds seeing other dogs on walks quite exciting and can become vocal and pull towards them. However, he is very clever and quick to pick up training when food is involved! He will need the time and patience for some ongoing training inside and outside the home.

Henry loves food and can try to help himself if the opportunity arises! He is playful with toys, was housetrained in a foster home and travels well in the car. Henry currently cannot be left alone at home as he does struggle with anxiety, and so needs owners who can ensure he does not need to be left for any period of time to begin with whilst he finds his feet.

Henry has shown to be very scared of men in particular. He is however, working well with training in place and slowly making friends with men at Battersea, Old Windsor.

Henry is looking for an adult only home where he is the only dog and where no cats live. He would prefer to live away from the inner city

If you feel you can offer Henry the home he needs, please email bow.rehomers@battersea.org.uk or call 01784 494 443.
