Honey came to us paralysed from the neck down but through months of physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, intensive nursing care, hard work and perseverance, Honey has made the most amazing progress. She is now able to stand up without assistance and is able to move around small areas with no support. She is still very wobbly when she walks and requires a lot of encouragement but she now has a level of independence that we are very pleased with.  

However, it is still unknown whether her leg function will ever fully return to normal.

Honey has been in foster care with 2 or our nurses since last year. We are hopeful she will continue to progress but we now feel she is at a stage where she could go to a permanent home, providing we can find the right person for her.

A decision to take on a dog like Honey should not be taken lightly. She is a big dog with complex needs and requires a lot of time, hard work and dedication. But with her amazing character we can say from experience that she is definitely worth the effort! Honey is an extremely brave, loveable and strong willed dog with a cheeky personality to match and we have all become very attached to her.  She is very good natured and loves children and other dogs.

We are prepared to take our time in finding the right home for Honey so any potential new owners will need to go through a selection process to ensure they are suited to her needs and that they are fully aware of what Honey’s care involves. A new owner would need to be prepared for long term commitment to her continued care as well as financial commitment. She would need to continue her physiotherapy (which can be carried out by the owner once they have had adequate training) and hydrotherapy for the foreseeable future to aid her recovery.

Honey has had a very difficult year and its time she found a permanent home where she can continue her recovery in a stable home environment. If you think you may be able to provide the right home for her then please contact us via email. One of Honey’s foster carers will then get in touch with you to discuss her needs in more detail and to see if you would like to proceed to the next stage.
