About Honey Rose

American Staffordshire Terrier / German Shepherd
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

From owner: ' Sorry for the long post: I really hate that we have to do this, but we are looking to rehome Honey Rose. She is 2 years old, spayed and fully vaccinated. We adopted Honey about 3 weeks ago from East Maricopa County Shelter. We were told that due to the distemper outbreak and COVID dogs were not being 'tested' as they normally with other dogs and cats, so we knew were taking a chance by bring her into our home with our 2 cats. And yes, we have been working with her with positive reinforce and treats...and yes we know that it takes time. However, she continues to try to attack the cats. We keep them separated when we are not home and have her on a leash when the cats are out. We have had our cats for 9 years and they have always ruled the house and had no problems with our previous dog (who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in March at 12 years old.) Now due the cats being locked up in our master bedroom / bathroom during the day, they are taking their frustration out on each other and they are fighting really bad. The cats were here first, and it's not fair to them. We dont want to take Honey back to the shelter, especially with the distemper outbreak and how many dogs are putting put down. Honey is otherwise a great dog. For 2 years old, she is a couch potato and cuddle buddy! She is great with my 3 year old daughter. Honey does play rough when she plays and is mouthy but doesn't bite. Love to play fetch, but you gotta tell her to 'drop it' a few times before she gives up the ball. Definitely shouldn't be in a home with cats. She does seem dog aggressive through the fence with our neighbors dog. She doesn't try to fight, but she does 'stalk' them up with her hair up on her back until they both reach the fence. Then she barks and they race up and down the fence line until we get her to make it stop. She did have Kennel Cough, she was one more day of antibiotics then a vet visit on Friday to make sure it is clear up and we will take her to this visit to make sure she has a clean bill of health before we rehome her. There will be a small rehoming fee to make she goes to to good hoMe. She will come with her brand new harness and leash, her few toy and balls, and food. We did register her microchip right away so we'll have to figure out how to get that switched. Please no negative comments this is hard enough to have to do, but my cats are older and don't deserve to be locked up even though our master bedroom is big, it's not fair.
