Honey is one of three dogs rescued from KS where he spent his entire life outdoors in a pen with an igloo for shelter. He was very afraid of EVERYTHING when he arrived and spent much of his first and second week in his foster home hiding. In the past five weeks in foster care he has dramatically changed by becoming very curious about everything, running in and out of the house freely. He goes in and out to potty when told. He is a loving, attention seeking, goofy boy who loves to get on and off the bed for head scratches and hugs. He gets along very well with other dogs in the home, Is beginning to like other people, is attached to his foster mom. He has discovered shoes, socks, pot holders and other things left lying around. He would rather sleep with the shoes than chew them. He is very much a pack animal and a beta dog. He has more to learn about being a dog but he is very well on his way. He would make a good pet for anyone and would do best with another dog.

NOTE: Honey was rescued with a dozen other dogs from a hoarding situation in another state where they lived 24x7 outside in a kennel with a dog igloo. He arrived to RMCR with Rex and Prince. All three are timid and scared, but friendly, willing to explore. Honey was HW+ upon arrival into rescue; he is currently going thru heartworm treatment but we are still accepting adoption applications for him to go to his new home in August.

If not already, Honey will be micro-chipped, neutered (if age appropriate), and up-to-date on his shots prior to adoption. If you would like to meet Honey to see if he is a good fit for your home, please fill out an Adoption Application online.
