As her name suggests, Honey B. is the beautiful golden color of honey. She has a soft, thick coat, erect ears, black eyeliner, and a snout that is on the shorter side. She has a full, bushy tail that she carries over her back.
Honey B. is a sweet and gentle dog. She is housebroken and crate trained, and does well in her room when left uncrated without disturbing any possessions. Honey B. answers to her name and has a cute habit of sometimes curling her lip on one side when she is greeting you. We are working on the Sit, Down, Wait and Stay commands. She is food motivated and takes treats so gently from your hand, you hardly know they’re gone.<p>Honey B. walks very nicely on a leash. She becomes animated when she sees a squirrel or another dog but is easily directed to "Walk by." In the yard, Honey loves chasing squirrels and birds away and hunts for mice a voles in the brush, pouncing much like a fox. Because of this prey drive, she shouldn't share a home with cats or other small creatures. <p>Honey enjoys frolicking in the yard with you and plays nicely with her foster brothers and sisters. Although Honey B. doesn’t get overly excited about car rides, she remains calm, and with repeated exposures, may learn to love them. She absolutely does love ear scratches and chin rubs and will lay her head in your lap so that you can indulge her completely. Honey B. likes to be where her person is and after getting some affection, lies contentedly nearby.<p>Because she has a timid nature, Honey B. would do best in a quieter home without small children. A fenced yard would be a plus.
Honey B. is spayed, heartworm negative, microchipped, and current with all of her vaccinations.
Honey B. came from a local shelter.
