An Adoptable Dog Duo

On July 7, the Pet Network in Incline Village took in a very special pair of dogs — Honey and Buddy. The two were confiscated from a severely unhealthy home environment. Honey, a 14-year-old Dachshund blinded due to neglect, requires constant guidance. Luckily, she has Buddy, a 4-year-old German Shepherd/Pyrenees mix, who has taken on the role as her service dog.

The two are inseparable as Buddy guides Honey, shows her where food is located, and introduces her to strangers. He even pushes Honey’s bed toward her, and makes sure she is always within his view.

“Buddy really is her eyes,” said Heidi Todd, Pet Network’s shelter manager. “He allows her to meet people, experience her environment, and enjoy playtime with toys. He really does care about her. He’s her real-life guardian angel.”

Although Honey recently had a mammary tumor removed and is blind, she is in good health. She is very sweet and wags her tail when you call her name. She listens well, and staff guide her by stomping their feet. Buddy is also a happy, loving dog, and enjoys going on walks and playing fetch. He is the most joyful when he is with his Honey, and the two need to stay together.

The Pet Network is still looking for a forever-home for these two dogs, who need to be adopted together. It will take a special family to adopt these two unique dogs. If you can give Honey and Buddy a fresh start, call Pet Network at (775) 832-4404 or visit us at 401 Village Blvd. in Incline Village, Nev.
