Honor was donated to us on Valentine’s Day 2020 by a very generous group of patrons who bid on her at the Kiss for the Cure event benefitting The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Honor is being sponsored by the Belle’s of Houston specifically for a Veteran from the Lone Survivor Foundation as part of what we hope will become a fantastic new Partnership with The Belles of Houston & The Lone Survivor Foundation.
Throughout her entire 9 months (Sept 2020) she has been a very bold little girl, hanging out with the big dogs and tackling the obstacles at the agility course like a pro! She is very brave and incredibly smart (and sassy!), wanting to investigate everything, walking like a lady on her leash even as a puppy, chasing tennis balls and coming to her name.
She is a great swimmer, loves to hike, has mastered most of her advanced obedience and knows a LOT of service skills. Learning new tasks and snuggling are her two favorite things!
We are thrilled to share that Honor is going to be paired with her Veteran partner the end of March! We had 17 Veterans from the Lone Survivor Foundation apply for Honor and could not be more pleased that she is going home with Kurt! He is coming down to Houston from North Carolina for 4 days of transition training and will also work with Honor to be certified as a therapy team! We can’t wait to follow their adventures. Stay tuned for pictures of their meeting and transition week-end! We will miss her very much but she has an important job to do and we have more pups to train to follow in her amazing footsteps for waiting Veterans!
