Honey Balfour is in her new home
Breed: Female Lab x Kelpie
Weight: 20 kgs
Honey is as sweet in nature as her name suggests!She has been moved about a lot already in in her young life and this has left with her some separation anxiety. We are looking for that special forever home for her so that she will feel secure and flourish. She has already changed so much since she came to us - there is nothing like a feeling of security to ground a dog so you see their real personality.
Honey's ideal home would be where there is at least one of her people around during the day, and when they go out they can sometimes take her with them as she is great in the car, once she is secure enough with you that she knows you are not taking her somewhere to leave her yet again! She also would love to continue being exposed to other dogs, either with regular companions on walks and in the park, in obedience class or perhaps with the right canine companion. She is fine going with you in the car and happy to wait for short periods.
She is settling into life in foster care and is an energetic and playful pup enjoying a long walk with her dog friends. She is keen to meet new human and dog friend and play with her squeaky toy and tug rope. She loves to play games with you and is very intelligent. She would love a job to do - even bringing in the newspaper from the front garden every morning! Or learning how to fetch or search!! I f you are interested in agility, or any of the fun activities you can do with your dog she would make an ideal partner.
She would be good with an older family but would not suit a boisterous household. She is a gentle girl and needs to be treated that way – with patience and consistency so she is reassured.
Honey shows all the best traits of kelpies – their high intelligence, keenness to learn and high energy and the lab gentleness, loyalty and food drive make her so easy to teach; and - not that it matters - she is so pretty too!! Most importantly she has an abundance of love to give to the right family who will cherish her once they see her beautiful face and great manners.
Honey Balfour would not suit a home with a cat.
