Introducing Henry, The Horseshoe Hound Raising Funds For Dog Rescue

Meet Henry, the little hound made from donated horseshoes. Named after Henry Bear, Michelle and Andys beloved Westie, who’s death at 15 led the couple to discover Chimney Farm International Dog Rescue and adopt their first Romanian Stray, Minnie Minx.

We saw what was happening to the dogs in Romania and just couldn’t turn a blind eye. Raising funds and awareness through our artwork seemed to be a good way to go. Horseshoes4Hounds was born and needed a hound. It took a while to come up with the design for Henry, who stands approximately 20cms tall, depending on what he is doing. We wanted to make something postable, fun, affordable and easily posed in different positions. Michelle designed the first ‘sitting Henry’. Inspired by the very beautiful Mrs Pepperpot, the couples second adopted Romanian Stray, with her floppy ears, goofy grin and great big feet.

Henry is completely upcycled, his body is made from horseshoes, ears from horseshoe nails and nose from bearings. Henry can have a ball in his mouth, a brilliant horseshoe nail bone or a lolling tongue created with a splatted nail. He can be shiney polished or forced rust laquered finish.
