The first thing you will notice about Henry is his beautiful big blue eyes. Pictures don't it Justice.
Henry is a mid size Corgi/Husky mix around 4 to 5 years old neutered male dog. He is currently around 37 lbs. He is full grown and in his healthy weight so he is not (and should not) get bigger. Henry absolutely is a sweetheart. He loves loves loves people, especially kids. He loves to be petted, hugged and cuddle. His happiest is to be in the family room sitting next to you. Henry is a GREAT companion.
Henry is friendly with dogs, but he doesn't play much with other dogs. He is definitely more interested in people. Henry is curious with cats at first, then he soon loses interest and doesn’t care much about cats. Henry is very smart and he is food driven so he can be trained easily. Henry does pull on leash in the beginning of the walks or when he wanted to chase birds or rabbits. He is potty-trained, however, in the first few days in a new environment he does mark the new territory. Henry does have minor separation anxiety in the first months when he just arrived in the new environment. He whines a little when he was left alone or he is separated from you. But after you established a schedule and routine with him, he doesn't whine anymore. Henry is a happy dog and would go up to anyone for petting. He wags his tail all the time and very easy-going. Henry is well socialized and can settle into a new environment quickly.
We rescued Henry from a public shelter in Hsin Wu district, TaoYuan County in Taiwan. He was surrendered by an owner who kept him in a small 4 feet by 4 feet open patio for his whole life. There was no shelter, no shade, dirty water and food and feces everywhere. Neighbor called the animal control and Henry was taken in. The shelter's environment was not much better than his previous life. Taiwan shelters (especially public shelters) are known to be overcrowded and very poor conditions.
One of our volunteers regularly visit shelters to help dogs that urgently need help. Henry was there for over three months and he was very thin, covered in blood and wasn't moving at all. The shelter staff thought he was dead and just left him there for a few days or weeks without any food/water and care. Our volunteer went into his kennel and was planning to get his body to cremation. That when she found out that he was still alive. Our rescue immediately pull him out and got him to a vet.
Henry is 100% healthy. He has all of his vaccinations, passed quarantine, and have blood checked and physical exam. Henry does have a large wound on his left hide leg. We did x-ray, none of the bones were broken. It was muscle tear and flesh rip. He was treated by our vet and is fully mobile and normal. You don't even notice he had an injury before. However, Henry should always be on Joint and Food supplements for the rest of his life.
Henry is happy, active and have a great smile all the time. He is a good dog and just love people. His past life didn't bother him at all and he just cherish everyone and his new life in America.

Thank you for opening up your home and your heart to a rescued dog.
A Ticket To Happiness adoption procedure:
We do require an application. Our process is that after you filled out our application questionnaire, we can schedule a day for you to come to our volunteer's home and meet with our dog(s). And feel free to bring anyone with you. After the initial meeting, if you like the dog and if we think you could be a good fit for him/her, then you can start a trial adoption. Trial adoption means that we will arrange and take the dog over to your home and leave him/her with you for a few days to two weeks (we prefer not to go beyond two weeks). During the trial adoption period, at anytime, you can return the dog to us (no question ask). Only when you know for sure that you'd like to adopt the dog officially, then you will then need to sign an adoption agreement and pay for the adoption fee. So prior to the official adoption, you don't need to pay the adoption fee. Thank you for opening up your heart and your home to a rescued dog.
Here is a link to our application questionnaire:
We thank you for your interest in potentially adoption/rescuing our dogs. All of our rescued dogs are in foster family's homes, we do not have a facility or kennels. And we want to make sure the potential adopters and our foster families and volunteers are safe (most likely you will be going to one of their homes to visit the dogs). That's why we asked for the application. We can provide all of the documentations you need to ensure you that we are a legit rescue. We want the best and the safest for the potential adopters, our volunteers and our dogs. Please note that we do not ask for any money at all upfront.
