COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - It can be hard to find love - whether you're a human or a shelter dog.

One Columbus dog is changing the way animals find their forever homes -  adding dating profile, Tinder, to the list.

Meet Henry - a lean 48-pound Coonhound mix housed at Animal Ark Rescue in Columbus.

He's an active pup who loves to snuggle, give kisses, and play. Henry has been at Animal Ark for three years after being rescued from the pound.

"I was like, hmmm, how do I meet Henry some people in their 20's and 30's… TINDER," Miranda Morrison said, the Canine Enrichment Coordinator at Animal Ark.

Miranda Morrison set up Henry's profile using some killer pick-up lines.

"Hello Human, my name is Henry, but you can call me good boy, You look quite fetching, Netflix and nuzzles," Morrison posted in the Tinder profile.

Since the time of the posting, just days ago, Henry has gone viral.

He can be found all over social media, even making an appearance on the Today Show.

But Henry hasn't gotten lucky yet.

"I thought it would be funny. I remember from my younger, swiping days, I'm happily married now, from my younger days I was on it, and I think I once matched with something like Pizza, so I was like it pizza can have a profile, a dog can have a profile too," Morrison said.

Henry's profile was published on Dec. 29 and it has received more than 20 matches since then.

Animal Ark is a nono-kill shelter that allows potential adopters to take the dogs on dates for a few hours at a time.

"I know there is somebody out there for him, just have to widen his pool of potential adopters, and hopefully we'll find someone, said Morrison."
