UPDATE - SEPT 16: Well, do I have some news for you! I can see; I am not blind. I may have been but I have regained my sight. However, I will require surgery on both knees -- which will be done in November. My Foster Mom is awesome but she says the frightened little pup is no more -- I am confident and full of beans. If you are ready for typical puppy energy and hijinks and willing to care for me after my surgery, let Animatch know. Fill in the Application Form and maybe you will be the lucky one to meet Honey Bear!
I’m Honey Bear, a gentle, calm and trusting 5-month old Havanese puppy. I’m currently somewhat shy but when I sense you are kind and friendly, I quickly warm up in minutes. I love belly rubs and a good neck massage does not go unappreciated.
I was recently diagnosed as being fully blind, and my owner did not feel that he could manage my needs so he gave me up. Now at Animatch, I am a little uncertain of my current surroundings, but am adjusting well. The family who adopts me will have to take a few things into consideration but the truth is I’m a fast learner and with the right family, I will quickly adapt and learn to maneuver the home I am living in. I’m so very eager to have a loving forever home who will never give up on me.
My ideal family would be one that is quiet and calm but I am far from boring and as I get older and more secure, I will become a little more adventurous and may even be taught to fetch! I can be the only pet or would also welcome a gentle fur sibling to hang out with as long as they are friendly. And while I am not used to felines, I am totally keen on hanging out with a cool cat!
Though my new family will have to be willing to make some accommodations to keep me safe and secure, I can live a full active life and participate in much of the same activities that sighted dogs enjoy. The truth is I was born blind and my other senses are super sharp! Don’t underestimate my ability to learn.
Lots of affection and a willingness to help me adjust will be important. I love yummy treats and will learn quickly with a little of these delicious temptations.
If you are looking for a lifelong, loyal and loving companion who needs a little bit of extra help, look no further as I will be by your side and rewarding you with love and affection forever more. All I ask for in return is for a lifetime commitment of devotion and lots of belly rubs!!
If you would like to adopt me and have done your research, then by all means fill in the Application Form and tell me your story. Another dog in the home would be preferable.
