Honey and JoJo are a bonded pair and need to stay together. Honey is the golden colored mom and JoJo is her daughter. Dad was a Lab, thus JoJo’s black color.

Personalities: Both dogs have had no accidents in the house and seem to be completely potty trained. Neither have been kept in a crate and are free to roam the living room of their foster home when no one is home. They have peeked at children through the fence and neither has a problem with them. Both girls take their treats gently and neither will jump up on their foster folks.

Honey and JoJo each instigate play with each other. When encountering cats on their walks they both growl and snarl – like mother, like daughter! Neither one of the girls are crazy about the car. JoJo tends to get quite vocal, especially when stopped and traffic like and seeing the cars next to her. Poor Honey shivers. They are both pretty anxious in the car. When it comes to walking, Honey is pretty easy going, JoJo is a puller. I guess that easy walking gene missed JoJo. But they both pull when they see those darned cats! First couple of walks, JoJo whined and barked about every 10 steps, but that seems to be calming down with the help of a toy that foster mom and dad brought along. Taking walks after dark seems to help JoJo not bark so much.

They haven’t been around water yet or experienced a thunderstorm since being in their temporary home. Honey doesn’t seem interested in toys, but JoJo has become attached to a green stuffy turtle. She will retrieve it and take it to her bed. They both sleep through the night. Honey likes to be brushed and JoJo will tolerate for a few minutes. She even let foster mom “vacuum” the extra hair of her fluffy body.

As far as their energy levels, Honey is low to middle energy and is slowly warming up to the man in the household who she’s was a bit apprehensive around at first. JoJo is a “nervous Nellie” in that in her first few days in her foster home were spent talking, whining, and barking. She’s just getting used to new people and new surroundings. Despite all this, she is a very sweet girl. She’s comfortable enough now to wag her tail when petted.

Ideal Home: As mentioned earlier, they are a bonded pair and need to be kept together. They need a family who is content to just love two low-key dogs and that will help JoJo with her anxiety. Definitely no cats in the family, but older children would be fine for them.
