I joined an adoptive family on June 20/16! Lucky me!
3 years old - DOB March 17, 2013
Playful with energetic dogs, would be too much energy for senior dogs.
Good with cats
Gentle with kids
Fenced Yard Required
Located in the GTA
As sweet as honey! Honey is a a 3 years old Newf, who was born March 17th, 2013.
She is a petite Newf at 80 lbs. Her ideal weight would be closer to 85-90 lbs, so she needs to gain a few pound. Not to worry, what she lacks in size she makes up for in personality. :o)
Honey is super friendly with everyone she meets! She loves affection and belly rubs. She's been gentle and polite meeting neighbourhood kids. A typical velco Newf, she'll follow you around any chance she gets!
Her foster family is teaching her basic obedience, including keeping all four paws on the floor. Her new family will have to keep up her training. She is a smart and eager student, though, and her training is coming along nicely.
Honey hasn't had a lot of opportunities to socialize with new dogs, and so takes a few moments to warm up. Once she settles, she is a play machine. She would be great with a social, playful dog that would appreciate her rough and tumble play style, and equally fine as an only dog.
Her foster family has a cat, and Honey is doing very well. She did try to chase a few times, but has learned that feline friends generally don't want to play with her. Humph!
Honey will absolutely excel at working dog activities! She is bright, eager and loves to learn! Her foster family has enjoyed teaching her the basics, such as sit, down, stay, etc. Her crate training is also coming along nicely.
Honey has recently gone into heat, which will delay her spay surgery. It is safest to delay surgery for 5-6 weeks following the end of a heat cycle. We will consider a foster-to-adopt placement in Ontario once her heat has ended (mid June). In this case she could join her adoptive family prior to spay, and in 6 weeks time we would then proceed with spaying before finalizing the adoption.
She is being fostered in the GTA. Her approved adopters will be required to pick her up in person.
An adoption donation of $500 will apply.
