Meet this sweet 8 year old girl. Honey really lives up to her name with her sugar face. This girl LOVES attention. She wants to be next to her human. She would do best in a house with free reign. At this point she is used to being a couch dog and loves to snuggle. Things we've learned in her first week:

  • She's a lover
  • Very social dog, very friendly
  • Appropriate with children, but excitable
  • Energetic dog, does well with multiple walks a day, less interested in being in the fenced yard unless someone is out with her
  • In her previous home she lived with a small dog and it sounds like that went well.
  • Has not been cat tested
  • Well-behaved
  • Willing to be kenneled and listens well
  • Does give pull when there's a squirrel, but redirect-able


She's really just the perfect golden and would be a wonderful addition to a family with the time to give her the attention she deserves.


Honey's been a sweetheart through her first RAGOM Christmas (complete with puppy stocking). Now she's looking to find her greatest gift of all, her very own forever family!!!

Hello Honey!!! She is PB Golden, 8 years old, but you'd never guess! Honey has been with me for a couple months and has just settled right in as part of the family. She's up to date on heartworm, flea nad tick preventative, spayed and vetted. During her exam the vet was very impressed with her joints and health. She loves a few walks a day and will go as far as you will take her. Honey has a few thoughts on her forever family:

My name is Honey and I'm a really good girl. I'm quite sprightly for my age and get really excited when my people let me snuggle, it's my favorite.Because I love to cuddle so much, I'd really do better with just me and my people. I don't always want to share my people with other dogs. I'm not a biter and I'm super gentle with my people. But I am vocal when other dogs come into my home.

Someone who will let me be the lapdog I am. I just love it so much. Let me love you!!! :) Someone who will enjoy walks with me. I may be 8, but you can only tell by my sugarface. I'm in really good shape and like to show it off.

Someone who doesn't mind my golden nudges. I like to let you know I'm there and if you'd like I'll never say no to extra belly rubs.

In return I'll love you with my whole heart. Plus, I don't come without talent. My foster mom and I have been learning tricks. I sit, stay, lie down and she makes me show how patient I can be holding a treat on my nose. I'm really good at that one. So if you think you and I could go together I'd love to say hi and show off just how Honey sweet I really am.

Don't let this one slip away. She's very well behaved with people. She'd prefer not to live with small children (no aggression, but gets overstimulated and looks at you to give her a break). Completely housebroken, safe to be given free roam. Foster Mom hasn't crated her since her first week. Never destructive, hasn't even torn a toy since she arrived.
