A Little Bit About Me…
Another volunteer writes: Taking a bit of poetic license here…”Once in love with Honey, always in love with Honey…”. What an awesome senior he is!! Napping most of the day in his kennel, and getting up gently when I opened his door, Honey was delighted to join me for a walk and a chance to use the facilities. After his business was taken care of he showed off great leash manners, a lively step and a loose leash walk! His eyes are cloudy and he is a bit vision impaired and every once in a while he would bump into something, but nothing fazes this guy, he simply steps back and around. He has the best snaggle tooth I’ve ever seen, adding to his charm and unique look. Other than a couple of appropriate age callouses his coat is clean, his weight is ample and his coat soft. Honey is hoping to spend his retirement years surrounded by the warmth of a new person or family, a soft bed, easy walks and nutritious food. Such an easy give for this awesome boy.

Summary: Honey approached the assessor in the assessment room with a relaxed body. He was calm throughout the assessment, social at times, and allowed all handling. No concerning behaviors were displayed.
Summary (1): 10/14: When introduced off leash to a female dog, Honey greets politely then attempts to mount. He then wanders the pen.
ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Honey so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium level of activity.
