Physical Description: Honey Dew is a Labrador/Golden Retriever mix—yellowish-white with white markings. She has such a pretty and elegant face, with beautiful eyelashes that anybody would be jealous of!
Personality: Honey Dew is a very sweet lady who is on the shyer side. But just give her a little bit of time to get to know you, and she quickly warms up! And sometimes she immediately feels safe and loving toward people: Check out the video below to see how wonderful she was with a woman and a 12-year-old child she'd never even seen before!
Honey needs to go potty several times during the day, and will bark to let you know when. She tells me she's looking for a home where someone is around a lot and needs to be an only dog. Honey loves cuddling on the couch, but also happily goes into her crate on her own to hang out for a snooze when the door is open.
She loves to walk and quickly learned her leash manners, and wags her tail at passersby and other dogs on the street. A very well-mannered girl, she can always be counted on to respond quickly to Come, Wait, and Sit. Honey enjoys riding in the car, checking out the world around her or settling down for a nap. With her energy level, she absolutely belies her age, and would very much appreciate a fenced yard.
History: Honey Dew came to us from a local shelter, along with her sister, Cinnamon Toast. They were both surrendered at age 10 to the shelter, after being adopted from there at 2 months old. The owners said they were moving and couldn't take the girls.
