Henri may look like your typical gorgeous Chocolate Lab, but there's more to him than meets the eye! Henri came to us from a hoarding situation, and as such lacks a lot of socialization skills. Henri has been with us since December 31st and has come so far already with his confidence and basic obedience skills, but he will likely always be a dog who requires an extra special home. Henri has not shown any aggression with us, but he is easily panicked when he feels overwhelmed or trapped. With a little patience and lots of good treats, Henri warms up pretty quickly to new people and new dogs! He is not cat safe. Once he adjusts to you and your home, he acts like any other dog inside! He loves to play fetch, get pets, and beg for whatever you are eating. Our foster homes and behavior team are working hard to expose Henri to new environments and situations every day and so far he bravely tackles whatever we throw at him - visits to pet friendly stores, busy parking lots, obstacle courses. One thing we are still actively working on is Henri's propensity for bonding hard and fast to his people. This behavior causes Henri to sometimes guard his favorite people from perceived "threats". Although he loves playing with other dogs and is very content to share a home with them, sometimes if another dog gets too close to "his" person, he will snap at them. He does not make any physical contact, but we are working on teaching him that this behavior is not going to endear him to any person or dog!

Henri has so much potential and is going to be a phenomenal dog for the right person. If you think you might be up for the challenge and reward, get in touch with us! Our behavior team would like to work extra closely with any potential adopters for Henri to ensure we set him and his new forever home up for success, so please expect the adoption process for him to take a bit longer than usual.
