Check back for more pictures of this "fluffy" beauty. Considering what she has been through she looks and acts great. Her owners were moving Hello everyone, my name is Honey!

I’m 12yrs young, have beautiful smooth red hair, and weigh about 16lbs. After my first family moved and could not take me along, I was given to a shelter where the vet discovered that I had icky bladder stones and some infected teeth. Surgery fixed ALL of that and I am now a completely healthy pup again! I do eat prescription urinary dry dog food to keep my body right but that is super easy to get from the vet. Other than dog food, I have no special needs! I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines, on monthly heartworm prevention and flea prevention, etc.!

PERKS of having me as a companion: (FYI, there are tons of perks!)

I LOVE walks. Seriously. Just pick up my leash and I’m your girl! I will outwalk all the younger dogs every single time! I also LOVE car rides and new adventures so traveling with me is a breeze. I LOVE other dogs, cats, people, you name it! I love spending time with people indoors and out in the yard, wherever you want to go. I am also a fantastic cuddle buddy and will happily take a nap with you whenever you want too! I am housetrained, crate-trained (though I’m so well behaved, I don’t need a crate), know how to use a doggie door, am a fan of soft squeak toys, love cuddling under blankets, and LOVE doggie treats of any and every type. I have absolutely no bad habits because, well, I’m pretty perfect!

While I love being in my foster home with my foster parents and foster siblings, I really want a home of my own again. I get very attached to “my family” and just want to be loved by a family again. Please don’t think I’m too old for you. I promise I will love you unconditionally if you can do the same for me.
