3/11/13 This is the Honey Badger. She is a total bad ass. If you have not seen the youtube video about the honey badger, please click the link below. Once you've watched the video, you will have an idea of what our little honey badger is like. :)
Honey Badger is a misunderstood little girl. She was a stray that had wandered onto some people's property in October 2012. She would not let them catch her and growled when they tried to approach her. They called me and asked me to come get her. As it turned out, we had to trap her. Once I had her home, I kept her in the crate for several days, only having anything to do with her when I put food/water and clean pee pads in the crate for her. She bit me twice. After a few days, I let her out of the crate, confined to my bedroom, and I would go in there several times every day with goodies like canned dog food, lunch meat, etc, trying to get her to trust me. She would run up to me, snatch the food from my fingers and hide under my bed. After a few days of this, she would come up to me and climb into my lap but still would not allow me to put my hands on her. After about a week, I decided that we were not making much progress so I put her in my bathroom, and took away the crate. That way, she would have no choice but to come out and see me when I was in the room. No place to hide from me in there. I gave her a soft bed and 2 blankets, which I soon discovered she loved to snuggle in! It only took a few days before she would come up and ask for me to pick her up. And she has loved me since then. She now begs me to hold her, let her sit in my lap, pet her, etc. She has graduated from her bathroom confinement to having run of the house most of the time. She is still not welcoming to other people. She will allow my 16 year old daughter to pick her up and has allowed a few people to pet her. If anyone she doesn't trust tries to pet her, they will pull back a bloody nub. Guaranteed. As I said, she is a total bad ass. She is also known by some as 'Hunny Bitch'. Honey Badger is only about 8lbs and we think she is about 2 years old. She does not like other dogs. She will tolerate other dogs if they don't bother her. She does not seek out my dogs but I have one old dog that hates others and she will find Honey Badger and bark at her non stop until HB finally reacts. Obviously, Honey Badger would not be a good match for a home w/ children. She is active and loves to play with toys. She is a good little cuddler once you earn her trust. She walks well on a leash, potties on her pee pads (and sometimes on the carpet, pet beds, blankets left on the floor, etc. but usually just on the pee pads). She loves to go for car rides and will sit in your lap the entire time, looking out the window. Honey Badger is located in Arkansas and will be transported to the northeast once adopted.
