Honey is a 5 year old, 38 lb. spayed female in East Montpelier, VT.
Honey is a 5-year-old red heeler/corgi mix who has been great with her human family, including our older children (ages 11 & 14). She is a loyal and loving companion, who loves attention, pats and snuggles. Honey is high energy at times, but can easily relax inside. She is completely house-broken and can handle long stretches of time in the house without her human(s).
Honey is smart, a good listener, and aims to please her human companion(s). She is in good health and is very strong, agile, fast and athletic, and loves playing catch (and retrieve) with a ball.
The best companion for Honey is someone who can give her plenty of attention, focus and love. She is best suited for someone who has a secluded space away from outside influences, such as dogs walking by, runners, joggers, bikers, UPS trucks….. Although we have other animals in the house, Honey would thrive in a household without other dogs, small animals, such as cats or rabbits, and chickens.
Honey is very protective of her family and may bite anyone who she thinks is acting aggressive towards her humans. She is welcoming of human visitors when she knows they are friends. She has never bitten a person, but has threatened people who were not welcomed into the home.
Honey has displayed aggressive behavior towards other dogs that are not in her pack. She currently lives with two large male dogs. Honey would not do well with a cat or small mammal introduced into her life at this point. Honey has killed chickens, a skunk and a rat.
It has been a challenging decision to find another family for our beloved Honey, but if we find the right match, we think it would benefit her. We recently moved from our forest Vermont home into a more suburban setting, this, in combination with our busy lifestyle, has shown us we cannot give Honey the attention and focus she desires.
