Honeycomb (or just Honey for short) most likely got her name because of her gooey and sweet personality. She’s a very loving, affectionate, social, and energetic girl who loves to play and lives for belly rubs. She’s most certainly half Dachshund, but crossed with something BIG. Don’t let her pictures fool you, she’s a surprisingly big girl at 42lbs, just a little on the short side thanks to her stumpy legs. Her foster dad calls her a Labradachshund Retriever.
She wakes up every morning full of energy and ready to play. She can sometimes get too excited and a bit nippy when playing with people, but she’s quick to stop when you say “no” or is always happy to be handed a toy to chew on instead while she plays. She loves toys so much and has commandeered most of the toys in the house as her own, her favourite being the squeaky kong ball.
Being such a social girl, she would probably really enjoy a home with a playmate who can match her energy level. She’s pretty sure every dog she meets is a new friend and doesn’t understand sometimes when they don’t want to play with her. She likes most people, but occasionally, will growl or bark at strangers (why remains a mystery). She has had limited experience with cats and kids but has been friendly and well-behaved with the few introductions she has had.
She loves going for walks, and for the most part doesn’t have any issues. She can sometimes get a bit excited and pull (especially when she sees a dog she needs to meet), and seems to have some issues with bikes, scooters, skateboards, and other fast-moving things that get too close to her (which she barks at and tries to chase). She can also sometimes get spooked by loud noises (loud cars, motorcycles, big groups of kids), but she manages herself quite well even when she’s nervous.
She’s really smart and already knows some of the most important commands like “No”, “Leave It” and “Sit”. She’s also great at responding to her name and coming when called. She’s very treat/food motivated, which is great for training, but also can be an issue if you leave food within her reach (she’s always trying to steal her foster brother’s food because he’s such a slow eater). She’s great about going outside to do her business and has not had a single accident inside since she arrived.
She’s been great about going to her crate when she hears “bedtime” and usually settles pretty quickly once she’s in (leaving some toys for her to play with helps) but will occasionally cry and whine when left alone. She does show some signs of separation anxiety (following her people/the resident dog everywhere, crying when left alone) so a home with someone who is at home with her most of the time would probably be best until she feels a bit more secure.

Adoption costs: $650.00
