17 month old, female jrt x chihuahua
honey is an extra special little girl, looking for a person with lots of love and understanding to give her.
She’s nervous of strangers and dogs whilst out walking, she is very easily distracted with a tasty treat though and with training is improving.
Her fear also made her prefer to toilet inside, She’s building confidence and getting better at this too. As long as she’s taken out regularly she will toilet in the garden, she’s not yet ready to poo out on walks. But the last few days has started to ask to go out when she needs to go.
She will be around other dogs if introduced carefully. She’s also great with the cats.
Very young children are too much for her.
Despite her problems I find her a very easy dog to manage. She is so loving and an absolute delight.
She sleeps in her own bed at the side of us, but she is crate trained and will sleep downstairs it there are other dogs. She is OK to be left a few hours during the day when we go out
Honey also has a deformed hip bone that is currently pain controlled by medication. It has been xrayed and although her previous vet thought she may need an amputation our lovely osteo vet bob says he can do a repair operation, that although likely to leave a limp should make her comfortable and with all her legs. Adin are prepared to cover the cost of this operation.
