Meet Henry! This handsome boy is 6 years old and weighs about 55 pounds.

Some background on him, I found him on the side of a mountain in Puerto Rico while I was there for vacation. He was in pretty bad shape and I could not leave him. I paid for him to be vetted, brought up on shots, neutered and had all his blood work done. I then had him flown to the US using a service called Island Dog Rescue. The ONLY reason I am not keeping him after all that work is because I already have 4 dogs and am having a baby in February and believe he deserves someone who can give him all the attention he deserves. Even with the clearly rough life he has had he LOVES people and just wants to cuddle and be petted.

I have already started working with him and a trainer and he knows 'sit' and 'paw' but we are working on 'stay'. He is still quite skinny so we are working on him gaining weight. He has many scars and a slightly funny walk but has no other health issues or anything the vet could see that would cause him issues in the long run.
