Special Needs: Honey is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. She arrived in rescue with severe dental disease. On 5/23/22 Honey had a dental with extractions. She is overweight. Honey does have some atrophy in her left knee.
What kind of home would be best for me: Honey could co-exist with other dogs but preferably seniors that won't bug her. She doesn't like to be bumped into, and she doesn't like sharing her beds or food, so ideally only dog but again she can coexist with the right dog. Fine with cats. She independent in the sense that she just does her own thing, wonders, and isn't really cuddly. But she is somewhat dependent mobility, she can't do stairs by herself, and this goes back to her legs causing some pains.
What is my personality like: Honey acts like an aloof older dog. She typically keeps her nose down to the ground and wonders about with no logic or reason really. I've noticed she has a bit of a hard time navigating getting water, she will hover over a bowl and keep dipping her nose in it for a bit until she actually ends up drinking. She is at risk of overheating if not careful, we give her short rotation to potty then back into the ac she goes. She has some problems with her legs that causes her to be in some pain, so this attributes a lot to her behaviors. She LOVES fluffy beds, comfy bedding, and warm blankets. This girl can eat!! She's not picky, will eat as much as you give her, and will guard her food from other dogs.
Honey wants a home to let her live out her days doing whatever she pleases, being pampered till the end. She isn't potty trained or clean in a crate but with frequent potty breaks she can be clean
How do I act when I first meet new people: Aloof, but gentle and friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Honey is estimated at 8 years old. We celebrate her birthday as 12/11/2013.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
