Honey's Story...
Honey - Female/spayed - young (one year of age) - Golden medium coat - approx. 50 pounds

Playful and outgoing, Honey is a lovely, well proportioned and leggy dog, and a very beautiful one. She is so filled with the joy of living, and so hopeful, that occasionally the exuberance of her outlook overwhelms the casual observer. People who regard her only superficially are apt to dismiss Honey as "too much of a handful".

Nothing could be further from the truth!

Honey is capable of excellent focus, and she is extremely responsive. She is also keenly intelligent, and wants - with all her heart - to be taught, to be guided, and to be important to someone. She is like a little girl who is "all dressed up, and nowhere to go" - Honey has the capacity to learn and do so much, and no one to help her achieve or prove it.

Honey certainly has all the basic skills and potential to reward a small investment in training at least 10 times over - she is stable and positive, gets along beautifully with other dogs, is well socialized and expects only good from new people and new situations. She is comfortable being handled and held and worked with. And most importantly, she reaches out to people for cues and guidance with trust and confidence.

This is probably the most touching behavior that we witness over and over in rescue - that dogs continue to regard people with such faith and belief, even though people have consistently let those very dogs down.

But dogs, and Honey is no exception, generally "record only the sunny hours". Honey has chosen to dwell on the fact that people are intervening on her behalf, and even if she can't live in a home right now, at least she is being fed and kept safely in a kennel.

Imagine how she would reward the commitment of an adoptive home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Honey, a Rockville Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog for sale in Rockville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Rockville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rockville 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 Rockville 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/German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rockville paves the way for another one to be saved.
