HONEY's Story...
***Update 11/9/2009 Honey began treatment for heartworms. She will remain in her foster home until treatments are complete and recovery period is over. If her foster family does not adopt her, she will become available for adoption around the middle of March, 2010.

Honey (whose mix is really just a best guess) was pulled from a high kill animal control facility in NC, just days before she was to be euthanized. She arrived in MD last night and has earned the name "Honey" because she is SO sweet, quiet in her crate, and laid back. Honey is believed to be about a year old, and is a small-ish dog (picture is deceiving - she is short and squat!), weighing about 47 lbs. (that was also a shock, she looks way smaller than that!). She has had all her shots and been de-wormed. Honey is scheduled to be spayed on 10/29/2009.

Honey gets along well with other dogs unless approached by certain dogs while in her crate. She is quiet and calm in her crate as well. She walks well on a leash, and is believed to be housebroken (no accidents since arriving here). She is playful and happy, and will need some basic training. She was listed as a lab/boxer mix, but I believe the boxer is actually shar pei. She has some wrinkles and the cutest face you ever saw! She has shown no food aggression or any other negative behavior with adults and children alike. She loves our four kids! She deserves a loving home and a second chance at life!

The only thing known for sure about these rescued dogs is they were going to die Friday if no one saved them. Temperament testing is done both in NC and after transport to MD to ensure friendliness but no guarantees are made or implied about them as each home situation is different and it is impossible to test them against every kind of stimuli. Most shelter dogs will need basic training and a refresher in housebreaking. Interested adopters and fosters should contact Beata Kinsey (301) 219-2159. Honey is up-to-date with routine shots and house trained.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

HONEY, a Bowie Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei puppy from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bowie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
