Honey Girl has a short and glossy tricolor coat to complement her dark, gentle eyes and long, soft ears. She appears in all ways to be a Treeing Walker Coonhound (or mix of).
Honey Girl is affectionate, easy-going, and social with everyone. All who meet her comment, “She is so sweet!” Honey Girl was not accustomed to life inside a home when she came to foster care but is now 90% housetrained. Her forever family will find her an intelligent dog eager to excel in obedience training. Honey has never shown any aggression and does not guard food. She loves her toys but will chew things she shouldn’t if not given good alternatives. Honey Girl will alert you to someone approaching your home but is not a nuisance barker.<p>Honey Girl is 100% hound dog in her behavior. She scans the air for scents, sniffs everything on walks, and chases squirrels whether on or off the leash. Active and energetic, with great propelling leverage, Honey is a known escape artist. Like any hound, she will follow her nose fast and far if given the opportunity. She will do best in a home with a very secure fenced yard and a family that is vigilant to keep her safe from wandering. If you love hounds, and can give Honey Girl patient training with plenty of the exercise, this great dog is for you!
Honey Girl was found very pregnant, wandering in an industrial area days before Hurricane Florence. Shortly after coming to IAR foster care, she gave birth to six beautiful healthy pups who are now adopted into their own homes. An exceptionally good mama, Honey Girl is now ready to have a home of her own and great hound dog adventures for the rest of her life.
Honey Girl is healthy, up-to-date on all her vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped, and scheduled to be spayed.
IAR subsidizes post-adoption professional training with Jane Marshall (www.cheerydogs.com) to encourage a life-long and successful bond between the dog and the adopter. Group classes for puppies and adult dogs are provided at a substantial discount to IAR adopters.
