Adopt Henry. Sandy Geddry


Henry is a pure, unadulterated Walker Hound. There is no mistaking this when you hear his soulful bay.

Like any other hound Henry requires patient, consistent training and plenty of daily exercise. There is one secret to successful training with Henry. He responds well to certain treats. The secret isn’t a dog treat. It’s any kind of human cracker.

Henry will require some kind of outlet for his considerable energy. This doesn’t necessarily have to be hunting, but it should provide him with plenty of physical and mental stimulation.

If you are seeking a sweet dog that loves to be around people; and you have a large box of crackers, Henry is a good choice for your new, best friend.
