Honey is almost 8 years old and was my boyfriend's dog and he moved to California and couldn't take her so I offered to keep her, thinking I could handle a dog. (I love all animals, but I'm a cat person)
She is a true cattle dog and was raised to protect. She has extremely high energy and would be the perfect dog in the right environment. She needs to run and have a purpose. She is loyal. She listens and obeys, will sit, lay down, give you a paw, and can bark to the count of 4. Her favorite thing to do is play fetch with a ball.
Why I cannot keep her: I ended up moving into a house with two other dogs and she is showing aggression toward the lab and has been in a few scuffles with her. She just like to be the Alpha dog and "cattle" everyone around.
I personally feel like she needs room to run and be somewhat free. She gives me anxiety because she's always under my feet. I tried really hard, but I just cannot keep her.
