47550 – Honor
Why choose me?
Update 10/27: Honor and Diamond are now playmates! They can only play together if a staff member is present but, if things are quiet around the shelter while you are visiting, you can ask if it’s a good time for a play date!
Update 10/11: Honor is a fun dog who likes playing fetch and catch. He’s a real people pleaser and loves praise, so we can play round after round and his enthusiasm never wanes. Afterwards, he’s happy to join me on the picnic table enjoying pets and treats. Honor loves treats and readily sits for them. He’s a good boy, but he doesn’t like it when other dogs bark at him. He’ll sometimes bark back at them as we walk by the kennels but get past all the noise to an interaction pen, and you’ll see what a sweet, fun, and obedient dog Honor can really be.
Update 8/25: Honor and Beauty are now playmates! They can only play together if a staff member is present but, if things are quiet around the shelter while you are visiting, you can ask if it’s a good time for a play date!
Update 8/14: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Honor is now neutered and up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!
Update 8/3: Honor has tested NEGATIVE for heartworms!
Update from another volunteer 8/1: Honor was the first dog we took out. He was waiting patiently in his run and was very polite on the leash. It seemed like he had tried to keep his run clean, and went straight to doing his business in the interaction pen. After he explored for a bit, he was interested in chasing toys. He was playful but not rambunctious. After a few minutes, he hopped into my boyfriend’s lap and showered him with kisses. He was such a sweetie! And on top of all that, he would also sit for treats!
Update 7/25: We found out today that Holmes’s real name is Honor (and that he’s ~2 yo). While his owner contacted the shelter, he might not be able to reclaim Honor. If not, someone’s going to get a really good dog!
Holmes is a handsome, speckled guy. He’s quiet in his kennel and enjoyed meeting Zane at the fenceline when he was out–none of the crazy release of pent-up energy, though, we so often see. Instead, he enjoyed exploring his space then waited nicely for me to leash him. He’s a young adult so he’ll likely be more energetic when he settles in but he’s starting from a very polite base. If you’re looking for a friendly and polite new friend, come meet Holmes!
