Petite Honey-West is becoming much more relaxed in her Foster environment and her true personality is brightly shining through. We've been teaching her a few new commands and slowly but surely, she's picking them up.
Honey is quite a lovable little girl, wants to please and is very devoted to her Foster Mom. She much prefers women over men and would thrive best in a home as the only four legged 'baby' as her new Forever Mom showers her with love. Honey is quick to reciprocate, letting you know that she's just as devoted to you and will do anything to please you. Honey also appears to truly enjoy a more mellow pace of life although in typical Boxer behavior, loves to play tug with her tug rope and chase her toys down the hallway. There's one toy in particular that she is quite fond of and will play with this toy all by herself. She'll grab it, drop it, toss it into the air, then growl and bark at, almost expecting it to bark back at her.
Since arriving, Honey has not gained permission to jump on the couches or beds and she quickly adapted to only sleeping in her bed in the living room and her cushy mat in the bedroom at night. There's no doubt she's learned her place here with a Pack Leader Mom. All her house manners are just as great and a true pleasure in keeping us company. She's already proved she's quick to take advantage of someone that allows her to 'get away' with not following house rules, which is why it's best to have a firm handling Forever Mom.
When she is distracted by the neighbor’s dogs through the fence, she's very obedient to respond when she's called. We're still rewarding this newly learned behavior.
When left alone in the house, she continues to behave and once we walk back in the door, Honey lets you know how delighted she is that you're back. That little tail of hers is all charged up, wagging like crazy and her typical enthusiastic Boxer curls can really lift your spirits right up, delighting you to be reunited with her.
In a very short period of time, little Honey-West has wormed her way directly into our hearts, just as she will in her new Forever Home. This adorable tiny girl is 'keeper material' and whoever is fortunate enough to adopt her, will immediately be rewarded with the same spell she magically casts over you.
