This adorable little girl arrived just before Labor Day. Honey came to us from our friends at Responsible Pet Care, a Maine shelter that had asked if we could take her. Honey had been found as a stray, and no one had come forward to claim her after the shelter posted multiple notices about finding her. Honey is elderly and, as you can see from those eyes, blind. How dogs like her end up as “strays” is just beyond us.
Honey is one of the sweetest, most wonderful dogs we’ve ever taken in. Well mannered, house trained, quiet, affectionate, and friendly — her tail never stops wagging! She’s an absolute doll. Who would not want her?
By her second day here, Honey had settled in, and it felt like she’d been with us her whole life. She came and went with the other dogs, and found her way out to the dog yard and back on her own (in 24 hours she mapped the route — out the door, turn right, go down one ramp, hang a left, go across the deck, turn right, down another ramp, and into the yard … and back again!).
Funnily enough, she decided to eat where the other two tan-and-white dogs eat — Allie Mae and Tanner enjoy their meals in the laundry room, so that’s where she eats.
The shelter had done some blood work on her and discovered she had Lyme disease. They started her on the medication for that, and we just finished the course of antibiotics yesterday. We’re in the process of arranging multiple veterinary appointments for her — with the ophthalmologist, our internal medicine specialist (for ultrasound and other diagnostics), and our veterinary dental specialist for a long overdue dental.
In the meantime, we’re thrilled she’s joined the family!

What a sweetie! And smart and adaptable too!
I’m afraid the world is divided between those who can’t imagine how anyone could dump such a sweet dog (or any dog), and those who only think “too expensive – barks too much – pees on the carpet – sheds – etc., etc.”
Honey is very lucky that she has found Rolling Dog Farm. Welcome Honey! The best days of your life have now begun. 🙂

What a sweet girl.

She is so cute and lucky. She seems already to be very happy. I think it’s funny she eats with the other dogs who are tan and white. I think sometimes people, even with all the social media out there, don’t know who to contact or how to go about finding their lost dog. She is just precious. If I didn’t have all these (wonderful) cats, I would be driving up there to steal her from you! It’s funny how even the blind dogs seem to pose for their photos.

Hi Honey, you super smart, sweet girl! You sound a lot like my Rosie who was found roaming a friend’s neighborhood, except she was jumping 6ft. wooden fences & no one could catch her. She was extremely afraid of men, because they shot at her! I just cannot imagine what she went through before we found each other (with lots of help from some really great rescue people).
The Dog Whisperer once said, “You don’t get the dog you want, you get the dog you need.” That was certainly the case with me. I’d been doing lots of dog fostering for dogs rescued from places calling themselves shelters, until the 72hrs if no one showed interest, was the trip of not another chance. I was a temporary home for many dogs that found their way to states in the NW of the U,S, I’d been without a foster for awhile & called my foster coordinator & told her, “I need a dog!” She mentioned the stray in her neighborhood that couldn’t be caught & I told her I was definitely ready.
I’ll cut to the great part, what a great match!
I’m so glad your surrounded by other great companions & Steve & Alayne rock! I’m not kidding, you must have a lucky gallaxy Honey as you are in a Fantabulous Haven! Rosie & I are going to do a happy dance in your honor just as soon as I go downstairs.
I’m sending you a big welcome hug & Rosie would probably sniff you & then give you a lick.
Shirley L says
I’m so glad she found her home with you and Alayne. Her life just became a dream come true. Welcome sweet girl–never to homeless again. She is so adorable.
Oh! She’s a little punkin’!
