VIDEO: Dog of the week – Honey

DOGS Trust staff say Honey really is a sweet as the name suggests.

The female German shepherd, aged about seven to eight, came to the Shoreham rehoming centre as a stray and was an instant hit.

Dogs Trust said: “She is a gentle lady looking for a quieter home with adults only, but she can live with another calm and friendly dog. We are unsure how she is with cats and other small furries.

“Honey really loves her food and is at her happiest when she is relaxing with a tasty chew.

“She walks nicely on the lead, but she does suffer with hip dysplasia so she only needs short gentle potters. Honey would love a garden to potter in and it is something we are looking for in her new home. She will struggle with stairs too, so a flat would not be ideal for her.”

Due to the hip condition, Honey will be rehomed under the Shared Adoption Scheme, which means Dogs Trust will pay for existing medical conditions, excluding routine treatments, and the first £7.50 for each visit to the vets.

There was a recent ‘hot spot’ on the lower back, which is why the area is shaved, but it is healing nicely.

Honey does love the company of people, so would benefit from a home where someone is around most of the time, at least initially.
