Sponsorship:  Honey and JoJo are sponsored by Ann and John Woody. 

Honey and JoJo are a bonded pair: Honey is the golden colored mom and JoJo is her daughter. Dad was a Lab, thus JoJo’s black color.  As a bonded pair, they are sponsored together with a single sponsorship.

Honey and JoJo are Permanent Fosters because they need to stay as a bonded pair due to anxiety issues and timidness.  While their medical issues have been addressed, the two continue to have anxiety, storm phobia and excessive barking in new situations.  They both are timid, lack confidence and JoJo is fearful of men.  These two sweeties have been bounced around and lived in multiple homes during their life.  As they are currently happy and doing well, GRR believes Honey and JoJo are best served by staying together in their current home as Permanent Fosters. 

A bit on their background:  Honey and JoJo were owned by an older couple whose  living situation changed due to health challenges and they were no longer able to care for Honey and JoJo.  The couple gave the pair to a family member.  After a couple of years, the family member’s living situation changed and needed to rehome the pair.  This new family could no longer keep them so called GRR for help..  Since the pair is older and bonded, we brought both into GRR care. 

Personality: Honey and Jojo are low-energy, happy dogs.  They have excellent house manners, enjoy children, take treats gently and neither will jump on you.  They are sweet girls who want human attention.  Honey and JoJo instigate play with each other and enjoy their daily walks:  Honey is pretty easy going but JoJo pulls a bit so that “easy walking gene” missed JoJo. Neither is fond of cats. 

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 brushing for a few minutes. Both girls enjoy following their foster mom and spending most of the day with her.  They also, of course, enjoy napping.
