Hencho is a sweet little old man, who was very loved by his elderly former owners. He is completely potty trained and loves car rides. HIs favorite parts of the day are breakfast and dinner, and you can tell, because this senior pup is a little overweight. He is also a HUGE fan of a nice bath.. his foster mom in Texas said he just melted into a little puddle of happiness when she gave him one. All in all this senior pup is just about as adorable (that tongue!!) and sweet as they come, and just looking for a quiet lap to snuggle in.

Hencho weighs 10 pounds and is an owner surrender from Texas. Since this dog is coming from Texas where heartworm disease is highly prevalent, there is a chance that even if they  test  negative for heartworm now they may be positive in the future as it takes microfilariae 5 to 7 months to mature into adult heartworms after infection.   If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
