Miss Honey Bee is every bit as sweet as her name! A mellow and gentle Lab who was left at a shelter, she has a wonderful new outlook on the world . . . more about that in a minute. She’s about eight years old and a trim 56 pounds.
Honey Bee is house trained, crate trained, fine with free roam of the house, knows some commands and takes treats as gently as a lamb. She’s a friendly lady-like greeter, loves her walks and does well on an Easy Walk Harness. In addition, she’s quite comfortable in her own fur, is a world-class napper and enjoys watching TV with her foster parents. Miss HB would prefer to be your only canine princess; her former owner noted she ignored cats.
When Honey Bee came to us from the shelter, she had quite suddenly become blind and recently diagnosed with diabetes. Working with our vets at Alameda East, her diabetes is now successfully managed.
But could her sight be restored? A visit with Dr. Dugan, Eye Specialist for Animals, confirmed she had cataracts and had good news: she was an excellent candidate for their surgical removal. Thanks to our generous donors, Honey Bee had successful surgery and can see the world again!
Now Honey Bee loves to run and chase a ball and drop it at your feet for another toss. She’ll gaze at the treat you hold with eager anticipation. She wags: “My new theme song? ‘I Can See Clearly Now’!” Check out her fetching skills in this video.
Sweet Miss Honey Bee is a special-needs pup eager to find a special forever family who will continue to manage her diabetes. This involves administering insulin shots twice daily (a big ho-hum for our girl), occasional glucose testing and prescription food. She also takes an inexpensive thyroid supplement.
Miss Honey Bee is pretty doggone excited to have a well-deserved chance for a happily ever after story with a loving forever family! How she hopes it’s yours!
